    I used to use Firefox until I swapped to Pale Moon in August last year.

    IMO, Mozilla are too busy adding "useless fluff" instead of fixing things that need fixing.

    That said, almost all modern browsers seem to be getting worse (except IE bizarrely enough).
    Soon they won't even bother to include "Back" & "Forward" buttons or an Address bar.
    IE has never been any good, in my opinion..Attachment 7725
    I haven't used it on a regular basis since I swapped from IE6 to FF (2006?).

    It does seem to be reasonably fast these days.
    I see some people like to whistle Dixie.

    I'm not sure I follow.

    IE10 is lightning fast compared to IE8 (which is on my XP install).

    I guess W10 uses IE11 and it hasn't seemed slow.

    On the VM I built for my web course, I haven't really noticed any speed difference between Chrome, FF, IE10, Maxthon and Opera.

    I see many people using Seamonkey here. I am going to try it.

    OT:-
    4 more votes are required for Google Chrome to cross IE. Lets see :P

    That was directed at Chuck and his emoticon. "Whistling Dixie" is an American term meaning living in a dream world.

    IE is just fine. All this browser stuff is just a matter of choice IMO.

    From a webmaster/designer point of view IE should be scrapped, it's just not compliant with the way all the other browsers do things and causes all sorts of problems.

    BTW for all our sites the best browser to use is firefox.

    This is the truth!
    I took a online class for the computer language Python and I had to use either FF or Chrome. IE just didn't work at all with the web site for the class. You couldn't run the code online or submit your programs.

    FF all the way.. at least for this bunny.

    The meaning became apparent when I read the etymology(?)/origin of the phrase.

    We mainly use FF (or Chrome) in my Web Design course.

    Strangely enough I did come across something that seemed to work better in IE10 than Chrome or FF.
    I can't remember what it was now though

    It might have been when we were playing with Google Maps.
    I seem to recall that Chrome was the most cantankerous browser with Google Maps!

    Website errors effect all browsers in one way or another,

    Chrome 99% of the time. Ya'know... CSS3 and HTML5 support... not to mention the handy app start screen that has my email, calendar, etc in it which can give me desktop notifications about events.

    I'll sometimes use Chrome Canary to troubleshoot something as it can run stand-alone, but I rarely do that because it's pretty buggy in it's own right.

    The only thing that shits me about chrome that IE has is a bookmarks menu that you can pin to the left of the browser. A very handy feature if you've got lots of bookmarks, and frequently use a lot of them. You can achieve similar things with chrome extensions, but they're all terrible. Instead I'm stuck with a bookmarks bar with a very complicated folder structure that I give single-letter names so I can fit many on there.
