Chrome. I also use iGoogle as my homepage, and use Gmail as my primary email, and have a G+ account I never use but have.

Firefox : It comes default with Linux and I really feel no need to change it. But I do use chromium (Chrome's Cousin on Linux) side by side.

I have never seen anyone using IE either in real life or virtual life (except for minor exceptions) and yet it somehow owns largest slice in browser market.

That's possibly because people less familiar with the Internet (such as old people) use the default browser on their computer. Given that most of the world uses Windows, that would be IE.

Chromium, but plan on migrating to UZBL once it has moved out of alpha.

Yup


It should actually be more configurable than other browsers, be faster, and have a smaller footprint once complete. It'll be a while, however.

Chrome, though it crashes occasionally.

In college we have to use IE. It seems fine.

I tend to use Firefox for ABP if nothing else. They're all fairly similar now and Firefox is something I know.

Internet Explorer is the most capitalist and reactionary browser ever created! Chrome, Safari and Opera are linked with the Military–industrial complex and other huge corporations that want you dead!

We all should use Firefox!

I used to use Firefox on my old computer, but since I've had my laptop, I use IE.
