Doing a little research...What browser do you use to access the internet and what version of the browser are you using?

Old and new versions of Firefox on Linux and Windows.

I've been using Firefox since it was named Phoenix/Firebird. I use Chrome on slower computers, but I just can't give up FF as my browser of choice.

Firefox mostly, but have used Opera, and Chrome in the past

Firefox 3.6, which I think just upgraded to 3.6.3 only a few days ago.

I stopped using IE about 3-4 years ago. IE slowed and/or crashed my system a lot. I tried Firefox out of desperation, and happily haven't looked back. I only load IE to do manual Microsoft updates.

I switch between safari and firefox on my mac. I'm finding that I like firefox more and more.

Safari mostly. Sometimes Opera, Firefox, Chrome, and Webkit.

Lynx!

Lynx browser, good one. Back in '96 or '97, I installed the Lynx browser on our VAX/VMS.

You know, I note that there is no shortage of responses to this question - even AC delurked - but when JR offered a thread to introduce ourselves to everyone else, you could practically hear the crickets on the lawn outside (electronically speaking).

I wonder how odd that is?

All right, I'll be the one to admit I use IE8. I am used to it, it functions well enough, and I hate change. I rely on my antivirus to cover for any IE virus weaknesses, I have a 4-MB RAM chip and ultra-screaming fast processors in my laptop to cover any speed problems, and when I tried Firefox and Chrome again this morning I was underwhelmed. Every page I went to with Firefox 3.6.3 I kept getting error messages about missing plug-ins, and Chrome was too stripped down for me.

NCSA Mosaic!

I still have an IE3 release t-shirt. Aug 24 1996. GTF off my e-lawn!

AC: that rocks :) NCSA Mosaic was my first browser, paid $99 for the box set that included email, newsgroup, gopher, etc.

28.8 goodness using slip lol.

I used to use Firefox. I now use Chrome. It is faster and more secure. (Read: http://www.techspot.com/news/38368-Major-browsers-fall-on-day-one-of-Pwn2Own-Chrome-survives.html)

IE is probably the worst browser on the market.
