    Which desktop browsers do you have installed?

    Which desktop browser is your favorite that you use as default browser?

    I have IE10, Opera, Pale Moon, and Nightly (an experimental 64-bit browser from Mozilla). Nightly is my default browser.

    IE 10(default) and Firefox is what I am currently running, every now and then Opera. I really like IE10, maybe its just me (probably) but it seems kinda buggy still, I know IE9 was the same at first.

    IE10. Almost exclusively. It just works.

    I have to agree. I used to use chrome a few years ago but recently I just have stuck to the default browsers. (IE and Safari when I happen to be on my MBP)

    IE10 by default because its what I use on my phone and Surface and its built into Windows 8.

    I'd rank them IE10 > Chrome > IE9 > Opera and I won't even touch Firefox or Safari.

    I mainly use Firefox, but occasionally use IE10. Videos are sometimes choppy for me on IE10, but I don't usually use it for that anyway.

    Firefox on my Windows Laptops & Mac desktop. FF plays better with FTP sites than IE10. Your mileage may vary.

    I'm primarily using Chrome, thought I've contemplated switching to IE. I just like having my bookmarks synched across my devices. That's pretty much my sole reason, right now. I do web development, so I have IE10, Chrome, and Firefox all installed. I haven't had a client ask me to focus on any others, so I haven't bothered with Opera since college (jeez, that was 5 years ago, now).

    I mainly use Firefox as it has more/better add-ons. I would use IE, but it's painful without Adblock.

    my thoughts exactly, without ad block and the lag when loading pages i am stuck on chrome as much as i want to use ie 10. I havent had ads in so long when i try to use ie it bugs the crap out of me to see all this stuff pushed at me in the corners of my eyes, it just isnt as clean with ads.

    Opera won me over several years ago, but I'll still go back to Internet Explorer on the rare occasion that I get the "incompatible browser" screen.

    I've been using IE for years. Once in a while, I'll go to Chrome and use it for a while, but then I'll come across a site that requires IE. So I just end up going back to IE. It doesn't make any sense to have to install an IE extension just to use Chrome.

    Lack of Adblock is the main reason why I rarely use IE.

    Yup. I have been running with Nightly for about 3 weeks now. Pretty buggy (of course it is, it's beta) but the updates come fast and furious. I guess it's even more experimental than Aurora.
