    Hi all

    What your favorite browser you use?

    The one I use a lot is Maxthon 3 (it the best) I would advise that you try it out (very customisable and easy to use).

    So again what browser do you use chrome, internet explorer, firefox and why (but that doesn't matter about the why you can just ignore it if you want )

    Firefox. I'm also trying Pale Moon, a custom build of Firefox for Windows that is 64-bit.

    Since going to windows 8 I've actually been a huge IE supporter. Chrome is awful on win8 and ff still has the memory leaks that have been surrounding them since... Well... Firefox.

    Have been an ie advocate since ie9 came out. I was chrome before that and again during a year period that I had a mac. I haven't used fire fox since like 06 or 07. Chrome and IE are both too much better to deal with the short comings and (imo) ugly appearance of fire fox

    Anyone remember Netscape? That use to be my favorite.

    With Linux and Windows8 I use Firefox with Adblock Plus and NoScript.

    My favorite is basically Google Chrome, because it is the fastest, most reliable, easy-to-use browser there is. Other than that, I also like using Torch browser since it's based on chromiun and looks like Chrome, but it's got some cool built-in extensions in addition that allow you to download torrents, music and videos. Oh, and also share articles and sites on FB. It's really great.

    Firefox. Has been for years. IE is the weak link, IMO.

    Internet Explorer 10. Darn this thing is lightning fast. Rock solid reliability and fits right into Windows 8.

    I use the same add ons in Firefox. I've been running Pale Moon in Windows lately, since it's a 64-bit build of Firefox for Windows.

    I'm a huge Mozilla fan and using Firefox for Windows. Every donation makes the Firefox best for all. Hope Mozilla will make one for Windows Phone.

    Chrome is the best on Windows 7. Someone above me said it sucks on Windows 8 but somehow I doubt it if it runs great on a Core 2 Duo Windows 7 laptop. I have been using Firefox for years but Chrome is just better now. Chrome has one major flaw though, it runs like absolute garbage on ARM processors.

    For mobile I would have to say Boat Browser.

    Chrome! I use it because of all my bookmarks syncing across all devices and how easy the interface is to use.

    Ie10 is unbeatable in terms of speed..but I don't get it why no bookmark sync after so many years? Is that due to some patent issue?

    I really love Firefox I have been using it for quite a while, I have chrome installed and use it occasionally but for me Firefox has always been the fastest. Since I upgraded my laptop I have been just using IE10 and haven't had much of a problem, but I don't do a lot of web browsing on it.

    I wish Microsoft made an IE for the MAC, because I have a MAC at home, I have been using Chrome to sync my bookmarks...but I am trying to drop Google totally... I am trying Firefox, so far I like it as it is more compatible with my work email, and work interweb. IE works the best for most websites, chrome has some serious issues on some sites and I either have to use Safari or IE to make it work right.

    The only thing I don't like about firefox is that I to setup sync on a 2nd computer, you have to be near the 1st computer to get the code... I find this is ridiculous.
