    PC Internet browsers

    I'm using firefox and have never given chrome a try, but seeing as I'm all google now, I was thinking about trying it. Anybody like it? Are there any other good browsers out there?

    I've been a FireFox user for several years but have switched to Chrome for most uses. FF has gotten overblown, IMO, while Chrome seems light and fast. Now if it only had Grease Monkey. ;-)

    If you get the latest version of chrome from filehippo.com it has greasemonkey support. You just download click on a script and chrome will ask to install it

    Can you theme Chrome already or no? I won't leave unless I can take my Blue Fox Theme with me.

    I JUST started using Firefox late last year as my main browser...Been on IE since 1999. Even tho back then my main one was Netscape before it kinda disappeared. (If I used Netscape, I shoulda been went to Firefox...lol)

    I like Chrome's speed..... it needs other stuff tweaked for me to use it on the regular. I like Opera's latest too. Again, I like the speed but it needs a lil tweaking.

    My main one now is Firefox. What made me switch to it? Tomshardware.com kept crashing IE...it was that simple. And another forum I go to alot, the Quick Reply area kept malfunctioning.

    There is a pc builder site that crashes the hell outta IE. The three other browsers handled it with ease. (but Chrome and Opera were faster). Try your browser at this site to see if it handles it good. This site kills IE 7:

    Click on one of the PC's, then click the plus sign at Cases...IE throws up each time I try it.

    Firefox was my love, but ever since Google Chrome came out I've been using only that. Its so fast and organized, where firefox was a little memory hog for me. (and we wont even talk about Internet Explorer haha)

    I use Firefox mostly for all the addons, like NoScript, Cookie management, greasemonkey for most general browsing... but if I am going to a site I know for sure is safe I usually use Chrome to avoid all the addon conflicts and hassles.

    I only ever use internet explorer at work because I have to for internal intranet sites and such, but I wouldn't use it if I had a choice.

    Its something about the bookmarks I dont like about Opera and Chrome. I cant remember right now what it is....I barely like the way Firefox does bookmarks too. If I can get the way they do bookmarks better....

    I just started using the Google Toolbar Bookmarks......amazing tool. I may just stick to that and say forget the bookmarks on Chrome and Opera.
