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.)

What is the graph showing us?   I'm sure it isn't an accurate count of browsers used.

Firefox for me.   Always works well for me.   A little faster than IE.

Maybe Chrome is a little more "spyware" than others.   Google is known to use users information.

Yeah, my fault. It was usage on a particular website. That's what I get for posting super late....

I use Firefox and IE9 at work and IE9 at home. I actually like IE9 much better than Firefox.

I have no desire to install add-ons and I like to keep as little installed on my computer as possible, so I just have no use for other browsers. I read news, UM and Facebook and post to a couple of other forums and run a random search now and again... IE is fine for all that and I can't really come up with a reason to install something else just to needlessly junk up my harddrive.

I prefer sea monkey (from the makers of firefox)  It is a browser and email client rolled into one.  Much easier for me.

I currently use IE which i hate with a passion, the very worst browser i have ever used. I have thousands of favorites because it crashes so much i have to favorite stuff to find it again, or copy the link in put it in word pad so i don't lose it. And then of course theres the flash player thing, where if i go and watch a video on any site after a while the browser with start getting glitchy and then where the video was there will be a exclamation mark and it says i have to udate the flash player, problem is, i have done that at least 5 times and it keeps happening but if i X out of the browser completely and then open it again, everything is fine, until it happens all over again LOL

If i could i would instantly delete it and replace it with firefox (the best i have used so far) and at least it recovers your tabs if it does crash, which would happen  like once a week for me when i had it VS IE crashing every single day up to 20 times a day. If i try to delete IE it will not let me, its not even an option in the programs tab, and i can't install firefox with it because this is my music computer as well so i don't have the space for both of them.

I used to use Firefox and i loved it, but then it started being hinky, so i switched to Chrome, didn't like that one, so now use Palemoon and Cometbird
