Firefox. I've never used Chrome, but I feel like it's more for people who use Google more; people who have google plus and all that.

Chrome, it just feels more intuitive.

Chrome. Firefox has become bloated. Years ago I enjoyed using Firefox with extensions like StumbleUpon but it's become much too slow.

Chrome because I have a Chromebook. I basically don't have a choice

You made the right choice, boah.

I use Firefox on my PC and laptop, but Crome on my nexus 7 and iPhone.

I tried chrome. It made things harder for me than they had been so I got rid of it.

That's because you're resistant to change good bad or neutral

my brother-in-law gave me a heavily modified version of firefox and it seems to work much better than chrome. but i'm no computer expert.

I think there's a stumbleupon add on to chrome.

The best add on I've found is 'downworthy', which is only out for chrome at the moment. It replaces buzzfeed style hyperbole with more accurate descriptions.

e.g. "You Won't Believe" becomes "In All Likelihood, You'll Believe"

I dislike not having a file>open option, which chrome lacks. There's a shortcut, but you have to remember it.

At the moment firefox usage is dying off, and has been for a couple of years. it's now about 50% chrome, 25% firefox, when a few years ago those numbers were reversed.

50% chrome 25% firefox... are you sure that's not just the 18-29 crowd? What about the IE old people?!

One thing I always hated about Firefox was "alt tab downloading"

as someone who was furiously alt-tabbing and clicking , I'd end up downloading many "forum.cfm" files from YT because there was somehow one second between clicking on a file and pressing TAB that would cause it to download... or alt.

It's of one particular website, so it may well be skewed, but it's interesting for looking at general trends.

Of course, that's the log files of a specific website for educating yourself on programming (hTML/css/java)
8 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Monday 4/7/14 - 6:11:45 PM EST (GMT-5)
Possibly this is more accurate. It's showing similar results, but a much higher IE usage, taken from the other browsers. Probably more accurate.

Yes. I have a very high impedance.

I use Chrome on all my units, because of speed & simplicity.

I used Firefox for the longest time because, honestly, it worked just fine. I then switched to Chrome because I did find it to be faster and a bit more reliable, with some extra features that I enjoy that Firefox lacks.

I think firefox doesn't support some of my add-ons. I tried it for a while and there was some sort of problem that I can't exactly remember what and then I went back to firefox. I use chrome on my mobile & tablet though, because firefox is a bit heavy on the memory.

Safari, actually. Because now I'm one of THOSE people.
