Just wondered what the majority of UG uses as their web browser. Most people on the web apparently use Internet Explorer with around 15-20% now using Firefox.

Personally I've used Firefox for around a year or so now and it's the best one I've come across. I'm using version 3.0 with a NASA skin based on the night time launch of STS-116. It's nice and dark. There's also a little rocket animation at the top-right corner of the browser that launches when you load a page, which I think is pretty cool.

Currently, I am using Safari.

But when I am on my PC, I use Firefox 2. I need to update to the new Firefox soon!

Firefox. I've always thought it was nicer and faster than IE.

IE7. Never had any complaints or problems with it... Just the rest of Vista and the whole wireless connection thing!

I think the overall statistics will be different to those collected on a forum. People who use forums are generally more internetically-adept than more casual browsers. Forum dwellers and other FOCKIN SERIOUS internet users are more likely to know of the advantages of browsers other than IE.

I use Firefox, btw

This is true. I personally have no quarrels with IE7, though.

Firefox. Tried to use my parents laptop the other day, they only have IE. So many bloody pop ups... Ended up accidentally closing my window trying to get them all.

Google Toolbar, instant fix. I never, ever ever, have pop up problems.

I simply can't go back to IE.

I mean, seriously. IE doesn't have a built in NES emulator, now does it?

IE 7 - never had any problems with it..............Firefox gets to the stage where it takes ages to load up and it doesnt offer anything different from IE.
#28
I originally used Firefox, but something ****ed up, so I had to uninstall it, and had to use Safari for another coupledays. I would still be using it, but I hate those godamned popups

Firefox, definitely.

opera ftw
+1

Opera is immense when you've got it down to a black minimalist skin. The only thing they did wrong was call is 'Opera' instead of something cool like 'Firefox'.

It just customises better than any other browser that Ive used, if you don't like the look of any of it you can just right click and change it to however you want.

Also, it really ****S ME OFF when I have to use another browser that doesn't have mouse gestures and custom search capability, whenever I've got to search for something I'm thinking to myself, **** it would have been faster to download & install opera and use that by now.

So I use Opera and Firefox, but IMO Opera's got the edge if you know how to use it, even though firefox is more stable and now has extensions to cover most of the stuff I've been using in Opera for the last 5 years, shame about the name.

I used to think the opposite until I downloaded FF2, and then FF3 a few days later. Now I'm in love with it. I've had no problems except that my Adblock Plus has stopped working, but that's no big deal at all.
