I use firefox. My computer can't use the latest internet explorer, so I can only use firefox if I want tabs.

It works better for me.

This year, school's full of BS!!!

Internet Explorer becuase Fire Fox freaked the crap out of me when I tried to use it.

Firefox.
It's much faster, and if I use Firefox, I can have a Mario plugin, which changes all my window to Mario themed.
:D
THIS NEW SITE SUCKS I'M LEAVING FOREVER I PROMISE, GUYS.

The latest IE also has tabs.

Personally, I use FF, but I do have some gripes. It seems to use a lot more CPU performance than IE. And that's saying something. FF also doesn't recognize special characters.

So, I switch back and fourth.

Haha. That's how I felt. But my brother kept probing me to try it, and eventually i did.
Now i love it. Believe me, with time you will learn to love it too!

Now that they both have tabbed browsing, I really have no reason to prefer one over the other.

I still use Firefox most times, though. Act of habit.

Jeez, if tabs were the only issue… Mozilla based browsers always seem more forgiving with most webpages, and they load them better. IE seems to have this stupid thing about getting all the content it can before it deigns to display the page for you. Which is SUCH a bad idea when a page is made up of different elements sourced from all over the place…

I prefer SeaMonkey to Firefox though. It's based on the look and functionality of Mozilla's original flagship project before popular little FF took the limelight. It uses much the same engine as FF, but you have more control…
FF is the version made to appeal to IE users.

I've used Firefox for a few years, so that's what I use because I am used to it. Bad IE stuff back in the day forced me to switch over. I don't think it's preference as much as just habit/comfort. The updated version of pretty much any browser has the same features these days, so it's just a matter of what one is used to using.

It can make a difference when you're coding, though. Some browsers display things differently and are more sensitive to html and java errors. If you're actually doing coding, it helps to have a more “sensitive” browser to at least test things on.

Opera, anyone?

Opera was. -_-
First with tabs as far as I know, but it lost it… Not as great as it used to be.
That's a sensitive one.
Safari is the same.

the only thing that I don't like about firefox is that it has an oldish look to it while IE looks cool and sleek. Mozilla loads faster though.

FF.

I used to use IE, but I was stuck with FF for a summer, and when I came back home IE seemed unnatural and slow. Now FF is my main. I only use IE when DD (or some other site, but usually DD) is loading strange, and I want to see if IE will do it better.

That's because the basic look of FF was made to appeal to IE6 users. But it's got about a bazillion skins to make it look better ;)

IE, simply because I don't like to download things. Really, that's all. I just don't feel like downloading FF.

Firefox! :D
Because when you really get into the plug-ins, hax, and downloads it's superior to all others. ^^
Pretty much made for pleasing the person who is using it!
I'd seriously hate my internet right now If it weren't for firefox.

Firefox for main usage.
Opera for versatility, lightweight, session saving(fucking module 7 error ruined all of this.)

Firefox - I'm a bit of a complete tech-idiot, so my brother set me up with Firefox, but now I love it to bits and don't want to change.

IE. People keep telling me to use Firefox and I can't do anything with it, so they tell me to download this plug-in and that plug-in and I just can't be arsed. IE works well enough, I have no reason to change over at all.

I've used Firefox since the day I finally ventured out of my shell and got online (which was only a year or two ago). It's more secure, it's faster, and it has near-infinite plug-ins and skins to make it really mine.

I use the Morning Coffee plug-in to open all my webcomics at once, without having to go through the pain in the butt of using bookmarks; I use Cooliris, which is possibly the best freaking plug-in ever, so that I rarely have to click anything if I don't want to open a whole new page; and I use Adblock Plus to improve my browsing experience. Along with the Walnut theme because I'm old-fashioned.

With Firefox, life is good.

Firefox. I'm not really into using alternative software to be cool. I'm usually content to use whatever's stock. But when I got my new PC, I got stuck with Vista, and IE on this is pretty buggy. Firefox just works like a champ, plus there “Click to activate” Flash bullshit doesn't exist.

I must say that when it comes to FF, the constant updates are a really great thing to make you stay current. But one of the most annoying things is the constant updates.

It's all a matter of timing for me. ;)

Firefox.

The adblock, spellcheck and many other features rock my socks off.

Wassat? I run Flashblock in SeaMonkey and FireFox. So all Flash elements are “click to activate” :)

I LOVE it that way. Flash is like… Well, it's better when you get to CHOOSE what shows up.
