Who uses what Web Browser and Why



  • At work I am stuck with IE. Home I use Mozilla and Chrome. iPhone -> Safari.



  • Chrome most of the time. FF a bit on the side.

    I mostly like the V8 JavaScript performance in Chrome.



  • @ejmillen
    I use Chrome exclusively on my Windows and OSX platforms. On iOS I use mostly Safari. I have the Chrome App installed, but my understanding of it is that it is still Safari underneath. That said, Chrome on iOS does fail a Safari required test, so maybe not.



  • Chrome on the iOS doesn't seem any good. I've just stuck with Safari. Don't know about it being Safari underneath, that might be a rumor but I have heard it a few times.



  • @ejmillen Using Chrome here 99.5% of the time. Might start to use FF a little more in the near future with the FF 29 release (looks similar to Chrome). I avoid IE if at all possible.



  • @ejmillen I have been a FireFox user since it first came out. Use Chrome sometimes, and Safari other times from my Mac.
    Chrome on my Android device is nice.

    A year or two ago, I had a Mac user ask to have Netscape installed. I nearly choked on my coffee.



  • I use IE11. Why do I use IE11? My web browsing's pretty straightforward and basic. Additionally, as I'm always hopping on and off of various machines, it's the lowest common denominator, which makes it easier to get work done regardless of the environment.

    When is the last time that getting Netscape was even possible?



  • I use IE11. FireFox, Chrome and Safari on my desktop, different programs run in different browsers so I can keep track of things.



  • I use IE 8, IE 11 and Firefox. We have a app that only supports IE 8 so a few machines still are around for that app. IE 11 will be rolled out hopefully in Aug (or so I've been told).

    Personally I use FF, been using it primarily for the past 2 years. Once I saw noticeable performance differences i converted instantly.



  • We are using IE8,IE10 and Firefox. We have some files need to view using Google Chrome.Sorry but i hate IE11 😞



  • Chrome - I used to be on FF but it would eat up too much memory.



  • @ejmillen Firefox, mainly for the addons otherwise unavailable. Chrome is the backup browser.

    • For iOS, Chrome mainly. Safari when something uses it by default.
    • For Android, Dolphin mainly (different, but works). Chrome is the backup choice. Firefox for dabbling.
    • For what it is worth, tend to use private/icongnito/inprivate frequently, as many pages are throw-away pages.

    That is the general stratagem.



  • The computer nut in me loves Google Chrome for its: Speed, availability of viewed pages on ALL devices, and awesome extensions I can't live without (Awesome Screen Shots, Evernote web clipper, BuiltWith, Google Play Music, Page Color Picker and others)

    The WordPress/Web Designer in me only uses Firefox. It's the best browser for designing and debugging HTML/CSS using Firebug.

    For Android, I use Chrome, BUT Dolphin (+Flash app) allows me to watch Amazon Prime on my Asus TF101. Also I purchased Puffin browser app which gives me the best desktop web experience and good speed!



  • Oh, I use IE 9-11 to check websites to see if our designs are working correctly.



  • I get around. I've got some pages open in chrome, some in firefox and some in IE, not sure why.



  • Chrome mainly Firefox occasionally IE rarely..

    Users - Primarily IE 10/11 a few IE8s
    Some have Chrome and even less have Firefox

    load Chrome via standalone installer when I need it.



  • I use chrome almost exclusively (windows, OSX, mobile, etc) . There are a few Microsoft websites (not available to the general public) that only work in IE, that I must go to from time to time.



  • Firefox for almost everything.
    Chrome for websites that crash sometimes in Firefox.
    IE for some internal things (CCTV etc) that won't work in anything else.

    I still find Chrome a bit ugly compared to Firefox, but I think it's getting better. Or maybe my eyes are 🙂
