    What browser do you use and why?

    I'm kind of curious about this, you see I use Google Chrome because of the plugins that allow me to RDC into Virtual Machines like Server 2012 and the fact that a lot of junk of mine is on Google. On the other end, I love how FF just doesn't seem to crash or be as buggy as Chrome.

    How about you?

    I use Firefox. It's reliable, it's friendly, and Mozilla isn't datamining everything I do online to sell my activities to third party advertisers, or anything like that.

    Firefox.
    For its superb extensions, some of which, eg tab mix plus, have no equivalent in any other browser. I also love the live bookmarks, which I use a lot for RSS feeds for sites including this forum, and which also do not have similar extensions in other browsers.

    Thumbs up Re: What browser do you use and why?

    Firefox, for its above average extensions and it's general wonderfulness. Startpage is my search engine.

    Google Chrome....love having the latest flash, built in pdf reader and the latest version through the software updater as they become available...sometimes it acts a bit finicky but i find it is generally quite lovable and has beautiful web page rendering

    Re: What browser do you use and why?

    The first thing I do with any new computer/laptop is install Firefox. It's a no-brainer. I then point the computer owner to the add-ons page and let them decide what extensions they would like.

    I also deactivate Exploder. I've had the occasional phobe call asking how to re-activate it, but I've just told the caller that if they want me to continue to maintain their computer, then IE does NOT get activated. So, it's either my free maintenance, or it's IE and they pay for repairs.

    Firefox and its fabulous collection of add-ons are a life-saver. I use Adblock Edge + Ghostery + Noscript + HTTPS Everywhere for a secure internet browsing experience.
