    Had unflinching loyalty to Firefox for a decade till I gave Chrome an extended run. Can open four tabs on launch.

    Firefox, Chrome is rat**** in Linux and there ain't much else.

    EDIT: Dillo's not bad, of the lightweights.

    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    Not too much a fan of Chrome's data mining/aggregation activities, so stick to Firefox.

    Surely nobody uses IE these days.

    Yeah, but IE tends to come as default, it's packaged with every copy of the Windows operating system etc... The offices in which I have worked always had IE as the base option, but once people actually started to use them, they tended to download something else in the majority of instances.

    Was thinking more in terms of home usage though, not sure I know anyone who uses IE out of choice.

    Safari on the iPad is complete turd. Auto refreshes every time you swap tabs - never mind that you'd been writing a long-ass post but briefly checked your mail - and deletes your browser history periodically which is awful for n00dz sites with forgettable names.

    Chrome.

    Used to use FF until it went through a phase of crashing everytime I went onto YouTube.

    That's because it doesn't have enough memory allocated to store all your pages, apparently. El stupido, I know

    That's an interesting aspect of browsing in itself, actually. Which add-ons do people use?

    Use a variety of ad-blockers/do not track/privacy enhancing extensions, myself. Couple of other plugins too.
