Since this is an MS-oriented website I'd expect that the large majority of you are using IE, but I'm curious to see if a lot of you prefer one of the alternatives.

I personally cannot stand IE on desktop and find Chrome to be the fastest, smoothest and most intuitive and feature-rich. I tried switching to IE when I began to tie myself into the MS ecosystem, but it just didn't work for me. I've experimented quite extensively with all the major browsers before, but every time I always seem to end up coming back to Chrome.

Which one are you using? :)

I useded IE back in the day never liking Netscape or Opera. In 2004 when Firefox left beta I switched and never looked back. When Choome came out I for the most part ignored it. Last year I finally decided to look at Chrome as I was having performance issues due to the fact I normally have 50+ tabs open (yes I have issues). Chrome fixed my problems but I still have it adapted to the new UI. Btr in the end of the day I prefer a faster browser. Sorry long answer to say I use Chrome.

On my Windows 7 computers (one desktop, one laptop): I use Firefox most frequently, but also use Internet Explorer and Chrome (in that order in terms of amount of usage).

On my Windows 8 computer (one laptop): I use Internet Explorer almost exclusively (in part because Firefox and Chrome bump you into desktop mode from tiles mode and in part because IE10 has been enhanced in Windows 8 tile mode).

On my chromebook: I use (duh) Chrome exclusively (but have msn.com as a bookmarked page and featured tab; ironically I sometimes search using Bing on the chromebook via msn.com LOL)

On my WP8 smartphone: I rarely use the browser (just use the search button), but when I do, I use Internet Explorer (but do not drink Dos Equis :smile:)

I've been a Chrome user for the past few years.

A couple months ago I just went and switched 100% to IE10. A month later, got the 11 DP. I like IE, it just seems to have problems with more websites more commonly than I'd like. (On a positive note, it's crash recovery is top-notch)
Although some stuff like uploading photos on Facebook don't work, and performance is still not as good as I'd like.

I've now switched to Firefox for the time being, and will try Opera later.

I was using chrome for a long time but lately chrome was very buggy, for me at least. I switched back to Firefox and i am very satisfied! I also use Opera.

I prefer IE to Chrome. Chrome is a lot faster than IE, but I always have problems with Chrome. When I open links in new tabs from right-click menu, I frequently encounter blank white pages (contents are there, but I can't see it). I have to copy the link and paste in a new tab manually. Chrome full screen browsing is also terrible. IE 11 is perfect.

Another thing I like in IE is active X filtering. I can quickly disable/enable Active X, so I can easily switch flash/html5 videos according to my needs.

Which version of Opera do you like best? Opera 12.16 has a lot more features but is slow as a snail and doesn't render all pages properly. Opera 15/16/Next is fast, renders pages properly but lacks features found in 12.16.

I have used chrome all my life until IE10 came out and switched to that. Much better experience, doesn't feel "beta" like chrome always felt. I've tried Opera, Safari, and Firefox too. Opera was okay, but I can't stand Firefox or Safari. They were obnoxious and slow.

IE10 is my main now.
