AOL Explorer. Duh, it is the obvious choice for the modern man. Why look anywhere else? I mean, come on! It has 'America' right in the name, so it must be a high-quality product. That's science.

I would use IE9 afterwards. Then Chromium.


Finally, another user who knows what Chromium is! I was starting to think that I was the only one who didn't get Google Chrome and Chromium mixed up.

In terms of my favorite browser, I'd have to go with Firefox, all the way.

Chrome, of course. Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox don't make it to AG.

I remember a few years ago, IE sucked monkey balls but was still the dominant browser, Firefox was the popular alternative and Chrome didn't exist. Now, Chrome is now the most popular browser ahead of IE (which got better), and Firefox is in third.

If you asked me this question back then, I'd have strongly answered Firefox/Chrome. But now, there really is less of a difference between the browsers. I think Chrome is still the fastest, but I continue to use Firefox out of habit.

Honestly
Chrome is the best it is the fastest, I used Firefox a long time ago and it was fine. The first time I tryed Chrome it was like :O dude whats this.
IE WILL ALWAYS SUCK BALLS
It's just the way it is, it chrases when it wants tu from no apparent reason.

I didnt read the whole topic but I guess that nobody mentioned the "wowser" - Rockmelt. I used it for some time, it has fb chat on the side it has many apps and stuff it's basicaly Chrome but well I can say better. The down side is that you can't choose to be offline to some people on facebook. I'm currently on Chrome but it gives me **** sometimes but it have to put up with it.

Opera ?!?

Well its not bad but I read an article that opera is the best browser for slow PC-s and.....well... no big pros... :P


Chrom is the best for now, we'll see.

Opera actually has a lot of cool little features - Opera Link lets you sync data between computers like Chrome and Firefox. Opera Turbo is for slow networks - saves a ton of data. Opera has its own mail client, built into the browser. Flash gaming seems to be fastest on the browser. Cooler yet are features like mouse gestures (right-click and drag for awesomeness) and voice commands (so I've heard? Never bothered using it) and most everything that Chrome and Firefox have. It's kind of like the Dolphin HD browser of PCs (Windows, Macs, and Linux computers, for clarification). The mobile version is blazing fast compared to others I've used, and a mobile/desktop detection feature that actually works. :3

Yeah, I use Opera.

I'm enjoying Safari right now on my iPad 2. Haven't had a problem with it yet.

Years ago, I began the search for the perfect browser. First, I thought it was firefox. Clean, efficient, and a fox made of fire. But firefox has a huge flaw: other people enjoy it.

Most of you don't know me, but I can't bring myself to enjoy something other people enjoy. So I turned away from firefox, my beloved, to find a more hipster browser.

I remember when chrome came out. At the time, combining the address bar and the search bar was revolutionary. But I couldn't hop on the Chrome bandwagon; other people were there. So I continued to watch Chrome from the shadows, never even bothering to install it.

So what could I do? How about Opera? Opera is THE hipster browser. If I want a hipster browser, this one blows firefox out of the water. But it's just to OBVIOUS. Everyone knows what it is. What it does. That it's hipster. So I passed on it.

What then? Firefox beta? Screams "tech geek", sure, but not "hipster with a false sense of superiority." So no. Waterfox? Well since exactly none of you know what Waterfox even is, it seems good. But my laptop isn't 64 bit and I don't use the desktop for the Internet if I can avoid it. Arora? Hipster, sure, but lacking in features.

Then, I found what I thought was it. Rockmelt. Oh Rockmelt, you sweet firefox variant with seamless facebook integration. The real strength of facebook integration, somewhat counter-intuitively, is that you never have to look at facebook ever again. Proud of my new browser, I instantly went to the Internet to brag about it.

Slowly but surely, I realized that people had heard of Rockmelt. It wasn't this big secret. I was just ignorant. I considered sticking with a browser I liked regardless of popularity... but using a rational basis for browser selection over baseless popularity is a sign of weakness! So I moved on.

I went through the darkest depths of old, obscure and forgotten browsers. The NetScape clones everyone rejected out of the gate. The strangest and most perverse firefox variants. Different models of chrome. Then... I found it. I updated it, ran it and knew, just knew, the search was over. I'd found it. The most hipster browser of all time. The granddaddy of all hipster browsers. The search was over. I had won victory over the Internet.

I loved Internet Explorer.

Firefox is awful while running on low connection speeds.
Chrome has bad security.
Opera has bad security.
lol IE.
lol AOL, which is worse than IE.

Safari works phenomenally for me. Good security. Good efficiency.

Yeah, I use Opera.


Opera has some cool gimmicks but it fails in terms of security. It's worse than Chrome, and I can access all of my saved passwords in 3 clicks from any of my devices using it. If I lost my phone I could have everything hacked. That's why I prefer Safari. I have the power to manually clean it out from time to time... not that it saves anything anyway.

I loved Internet Explorer.


No one works harder than you to be that guy. You're that guy. You've always been that guy. You'll always be that guy.

You also love the band Skrillex.

Nothing more needs to be said.
