      I have a pretty good PC at the moment, running Windows 7, so I am afraid I can’t switch just yet, but I will definitely consider it in the future…

      I am with you on Firefox though :-)

    I personally use FF and Chrome. Chrome for casual browsing and FF when doing SEO and blog related things. I was amazed to see that IE still dominates in US considering the aggressive tactics by Google to promote Chrome and relatively high Internet savvy people. The only reason I can think of is because IE comes default with Windows.

      “The only reason I can think of is because IE comes default with Windows.” – that is probably why IE is still the most commonly used. Take a step outside your comfort zone, and you might find there is a better browser out there!

      Thanks for the comment Nishadha :-)

    A friend of mine said it best: “Friends don’t let friends use Internet Explorer”

    Although I do find that having one browser for work related stuff (Firefox & Plugins/Extensions) and one for general browsing (Chrome With little/no extensions) works for me.

      I am intrigued by your view Bronson, so when you are at work you want to use add-ons, but you don’t when you are at home? I feel there are add-ons more designed for work, and others more designed for home/leisure, however take Firefox with me everywhere I go (I have a portable one on my memory stick) so I have them all working all the time. That said, they can distract you sometimes, so I see your point!

      Thanks for adding your view, welcome to the blog :-)

        Hi Christopher,

        Yeah exactly, as an SEO, I run Firefox with more plugins and add-ons than I care to think of, but when I need speed for simple browsing I switch to Google Chrome which I keep as bare minimum as possible.

        My FF when running at full whack with everything firing is not slow, but it is a real resource hog – Chrome feels light and nimble by comparison.

        Thanks for the warm welcome.
