Web What is your web browser of choice?

I use Chrome for my everyday browsing but it's the worst of the 3 for streaming.

I use Firefox for watching NHL gamecenter Live streams and for hockey pools since chrome doesn't sort the hockey pools properly.

I use IE for watching Netflix as it has the best picture quality. For some reason the others still use silverlight.

On my desktop, still using Firefox (more-so nightly releases).

On mobile, Firefox and Chrome. Firefox works flawlessly with Adblock, but since Adblock isn't possible (or easily done) as an add-on for Chrome I go between the both.

Interesting question I just recently decided to go "all in" and use Firefox on all my devices. In the past I've moved from one browser to another just for a change of pace. Started with Netscape Navigator 1.0 and stuck with that line for ages. Tried IE until Firebird 0.6 then. Tried Chrome when it was released but couldn't get past Google releasing a browser to spy on everyone's surfing habits.

I wish there was a Navigator 2.0 skin for Firefox.
Ahh yes... good old Netscape, on dialup, no tabs, single browsing window, it gave me my very first "illegal operation", I actually thought I was on some illegal website. I remember all those first gen websites, packed with colorful animated GIFs and fancy back buttons. Searching using Lycos and AltaVista. Hey but at least I stayed away from AOL "you've got mail"

Always been a Opera user, though with the switch to the Chrome engine it's not the same as it used to be.
I always have several browsers installed anyway, but Opera is still my main browser.

Firefox - except when its memory bug - reintroduced around FF34 stops me working with it - and then its Chrome. IE unfortunately has to be used on some sites

*sigh* the memories... I don't miss using Yahoo as my homepage though.

Cyberfox (64), cometbird, waterfox (64), & palemoon (32 & 64) mainly. Have used k-meleon, seamonkey and maxthon nitro. Have tried opera, safari and chrome but they don't match up to firefox for my needs.

It's just as easy on Chrome? You can just add it as an extension and works in the exact same way as it does on Firefox.

Anyway, I've been with Firefox since Firefox 2.0 years ago, I tried Opera, Safari (and had to live with IE6 at school) and didn't like Opera and found Safari a bit plain.

I switched to Chrome 64-bit January this year as the last 3-4 Firefox updates just made it too buggy and crash way to often.

I have Adblock Plus extension installed and IE Tab for work purposes. I love the fact it never crashes, I love the fact it loads everything near instantly and I love the fact it can handle loads of Tabs and eat a decent amount of RAM.

Until Firefox up's it's game, Chrome is the only browser I use on all my computers.

I am with Mozilla Firefox since version 0.9x or so. It's over 11 years now with my browser, and I am not going to change it for anything else.

Default: Opera 12.17 (there is no Opera browser after that) + Waterfox/SlimBrowser for pages which don't like Opera or don't support anything else than IE (yeah still crap load of those in corporate sector).
