What browsers do you use, and have on your computer....

My default and main is google chrome, it's lightweight, quick, easy, and I love certain features such as the search setup (eg setting so I can type 's bla bla bla' and it will search spezify.com for bla bla bla)

It also doesnt have all the clutter of my ....

Firefox - got all my web dev & design addons, use it for compatability and when designing as the addons are awesome.

Also have : IE7, opera, safari, and had IEtester but havent got it back on windows 7 (not sure if it works, it didnt use to)

I wanted to get windows 7 and hate it, but I really don't, have no faults at all... No compatibility issues that I've found, not slow, not clunky, and when released properly will have some updates I imagine that will make me even happier (or I get a 2nd screen and don't care)

ie8 (no option), firefox 3.5 (main browser with loads of plugins), safari 4, opera 10, maxthon 3 beta (another webkit browser but it also has ie engine) but htis isn't very good at the moment. I used to have the mozilla suite (sea monkey as its now called) but removed it as it has the same engine as firefox

I keep umming and ahh'ing about upgrading to IE8, but decided its probably best to keep 7 on here as flatmates have 8 for compatibility,,, *goes looking at maxthon*, same about sea monkey and had flock for a while but yeh, firefox engine, not really beneficial to me...

Maybe we should start a what add ons thread as I reckon we could get a nice little collection going for our chosen browsers :)

Decided that google chrome is annoying me, it shows up my spelling mistakes as standard :( and I have to correct them... *goes to find the OCD thread*

Firefox is my browser of choice, add ons make the whole browsing experience richer. But I have Safari, it loads faster when I'm in a hurry!

at home on XP I just have Firefox and IE6.

at work I have Firefox, Safari, Opera, Navigator and IE on the Mac, and all versions of IE and Google Chrome on the PC.

chrome, IE & my main browser is firefox.

I dont like the way chrome renders some sites, laugh you may but I can't explain exactly why it is or why it's different it sometimes just seems out of proportion maybe.
