I just want to know what browsers everyone here uses and why?
My current browser of choice is Firefox. I use it because it’s fast, has very cool bookmark features, tabs, good CSS compatibility, doesn’t do Active-X, and it’s up to date. (amongst other things of course)
Let me know if I left out any browsers in the poll and I’ll add them in.
p.s. there’s only one other poll similar to this and it’s out of date.
I just recently switched to Firefox and I have to say it is much better.
:< Mozilla isn’t on there.
Mozilla Firefox?? ¿¿
Wouldn’t that be the same thing?
I use Firefox by the way. Finally switched after putting up with IE for to long.
No they are different. In my oppinion mozzila is more complete although slower and a bigger download.
You kids and your fancy ‘Interweb’ browsers.
Back in my day, we’d telnet to port 80, type our GET requests, then interpret the HTML using a pencil and paper.
Mozilla Firefox! 8)
Made my switch from Internet Explorer a few months ago, and it’s much better. Ive enjoyed the change.
Firefox is a “cleaned up” version of Mozilla.
Ok, i didn’t know that. Sorry.
opera!!! [8 beta]
easy way to access certain config options [enable/disable gif anim, plugins, refferer header, browser identification, cookies, java script…]
can minimize tabs!!! [in 8 beta it is an option you have to enable]
tab bar on the bottom!!!
can zoom entire pages!!! [not just text]
much easier to keep pages confined to [multiple tabs in] a single window
decent download manager, mail client, irc client and other features I don’t use
but, alas, it is $35
I use Safari or Camino(yet another mozilla variant) on my Mac. When I’m forced to use Windows, nothing beats Firefox.
I use Opera in both XP and Linux. It is so much faster than Firefox/IE on both boxes that it makes me want to cry.
I use Mozilla. I have Firefox but I don’t use it much. Mozilla seems to be more ‘complete’ to me.
Maxthon. Much more customizable. The only thing it lacks is a built-in download manager. I would really like a FireFox style DL manager…
I used firefox for the longest time but I find Maxthon to be more customizable and to have more features that I learned to need. (Groups, mouse gestures, site hotkeys, etc)
Maxthon is a good browser if you prefer IE over Firefox, think Opera is confusing, and don’t want to admit in public that you use IE.
My wife uses Maxthon, and I recommend it to all of my clueless friends.
