    I have used Firefox for at least 2 years now, and always loved it.

    However I have Safari also (only used for like 1 minute, can't remember what it's like) and I just downloaded Google Chrome. Chrome is pretty cool, it's set out good and there's no clutter at the top so it's nearly full screen. It's supposed to be the quickest for loading times too. The presentation is really good in my opinion, just a few little things different to Firefox but they make all the difference. I'm liking it.

    I'm deciding whether to abandon Firefox after a strong 2 year relationship :D.

    Also Internet Explorer is shit. Never liked it.

    How about everyone else? Personal preference?

    Firefox. Had it from first release, and will never change, it's just the best.

    Firefox, all the little add-ons are mint, especially that SkipScreen one that lets you d/l megaupload/Rapidshare etc links straight away cause it somehow skips the waiting time!

    Safari, but it's disgustingly buggy on Windows. Not as bad as the previous versions but it's still quite annoying when it cuts out :chainsaw:

    Firefox,
    only because Chrome for linux isn't quite there yet.
