  • I'll be interested to hear what everyone else says. I have IE 7 and hate it on my desktop. It always says not responing...and often interferes with other things, but I don't know what other options there are.

  • Firefox is my favorite. Thats what we run on all of our computers.
    My husband like to refer to IE as Internet Exploder.

  • I am using Firefox's latest version 3.5.7

    I don't recommend using IE 8 ((Internet Explorer)) it's still sorta beta in my has some issues that microsoft still needs to work out.

    I don't recommend Chrome, because it reports home to papa...and I'm not fond of my surfing habits being 'spyed' upon. (Whether for marketing...or whatever reasons they have.)

    However, IE 7 is the minimum requirement if you choose to use IE.

  • I deal with computers at work and download our software onto our customers computers and it requies IE7 or IE8 and between those 2 we all like 7 better bc it's less buggy, but I personally like Chrome and Firefox. I have Firefox and IE7 on my laptop and IE7 messes up on the laptop a lot but its not bc of IE it's bc of the amount of RAM on the laptop (needs a little more) and it sometimes makes IE run slow.
    I'm on my cousin's Mac right now using Safari and I like it. No problems all night.

  • I'm running Google Chrome and I love it. Before that, it was Mozilla Firefox. I despise Explorer in any incarnation.
