Which Web Browser Do You Use?

Postby Kestral » February 28th, 2009, 10:51 pm

As the title says, which web browser do you use?

I'm curious and not meaning to cause any arguments.

To start it off, I say Mozilla Firefox.

However I'm posting with Safari right now, to try it out. Safari seems nice, spell checks fields and boxes.
I still have to try Opera and Konquerer however.

What's so terrible about Opera? Please enlighten us.

I use Opera, and I find it terrific. I love it's user friendliness, and all the shortcuts and hotkeys you can set.

Can't really explain why, I just LOVE it.

Have you guys tried Google Chrome out? I like it, but it is too simple for me to use over Firefox.

Actually no.
They come with different policies, protect you more, prevent pop-ups and other things.

IE, for example, is not open-sourced.
However FF is.

Also, in my book, IE is a rootkit.

Firefox is hands down the best web browser out there. If you are using Internet Explorer please get Firefox. I hate Internet Explorer.

You might not be able to understand why Firefox is 1 million times better than Internet Explorer unless you ever become a web designer/developer. I've been working with web development for about four years now (give or a take a few months), and I've always noticed that IE has those quirky rendering mistakes that makes a website look different than it normally would in FF. FF renders much better than IE, which is a good thing for web developers. The thing I hate the most about IE is that, whenever I am designing a website, there is always some little annoying difference (or some big annoying difference) in the site's layout from FF to IE, and I hate having to take extra time out of my day to try to make my websites compliant with IE. IE is horrible, and even though the new IE8 renders better than the earlier versions of IE, it still can't match the rendering capabilities of FF3 (or even FF2, for that matter).

As a web developer, there are many reasons to hate IE. Maybe an ordinary Internet user such as yourself wouldn't find much of a problem with it, and that's fine, but believe me when I say that the world of web developers is praying for the day that the common Internet users stop using IE for good. It would save us so much time developing and designing.
