I was just reading an article about various different browsers and became curious as to which browsers get used the most around here. (And I felt like making a poll because I can)
I'm a user of Chrome, myself. Never liked IE or Firefox.

I use Chrome, but not to scare anyone, someone told me it was spyware. Is this true?

I use IE8, can't stand IE9, don't feel like learning to use an alternate browser either.

Chrome isn't spyware, it's possible they had spyware on their PC but it didn't come from Chrome.

Firefox,  Konqueror or K-Meleon depending on the system I am using at the time.

It not spyware at all. Whom ever told you that probably just had spyware.

Seems like firefox is preferred. I could never get into it. Granted, it's leaps and bounds above IE, I guess I just don't like it.
I much prefer the simplicity of Chrome, I suppose.

I have IE. It's been the true browser that I've always used. And it's the latest update so far.

sorry but i wanted to be the first to post this.



the human race is at an end and and my soul grows weary. the one thing that could revive it is almost gone and is in no condition to heal me. yet i shall not despair for the light of hope shines even in the greatest darkness. i shall continue to hope.... hope for the days of green and ever lasting love of all things. for those whom think them selfs better shall realize they are not all that is. nor are they in any way better for all life is equal.

Man, chrome just isn't getting any love here...
Brower usage stats.
I'm glad to see usage of IE declining. That train wreck needs to find whatever hole netscape is in and see if it has any extra space. (No offense intended. I just HATE IE.)

Chrome, as it is much faster on slower machines (which I have..).
