    Sure, you're welcome. This is just my own way, I tried different profiles. Did not work that well for me.

    At the moment Google Chrome on 12.04, but it has a strange issue sometimes where it will keep refreshing the page when you press on back.

    Firefox, for me too. For all the reasons everyone has mentioned. Well, some of them I didn't know about. Lol. I think it is, a fantastic example of FLOSS, to hold as a shining example, to the world.

    All hail the Firefox master race.

    Ok, for real. It has tons of extensions that I need and extensions that Chrome has yet to have.

    I was just reading an article on The Register about IBM & their CIO. They've gone away from I.E. and gone to Firefox. I expected corporates to move to Chrome, mega corporations scratching one another's back and all.

    Re: What browser do you use and why?

    On my Xubuntu systems I typically alternate between Firefox and Chrome due to issues with one or the other on some sites, recently however I've been able to use Firefox exclusively without issue; but I find them to be pretty equivalent (depending on what add-ons you want).

    On my Puppy Linux systems I use only Seamonkey due to its integrated E-mail utility which saves a bit of space when compared to installing Firefox and Thunderbird separately.
