Default What Browser You Using?

Just saw something interesting about browsers, so wondered, which one do you use now, and why?
And do you switch to new browsers regularly, or stick with one for a long time?

I use both Firefox and Chrome all the time at the same time.

Try to use Firefox mostly as I have adblock and NoScript on it to stop some of the rubbish.
Some sites won't work for me on FF though including Facebook, Flickr and Fine Art America.
For those I use Chrome.

Firefox because I do not like Safari. Don't know much about Firefox

Primarily Chrome on the computer plus Safari on the iPad.

I went through a phase where I used Safari, Firefox, and Chrome concurrently, but that was back in the student paper days. I forget the specific reason we had for doing that.

Firefox and Chrome on the Windows machines. Firefox on the Linux machines, and Safari on the Macs.

I am quite used to that trio so I don't usually switch, although I have tried Opera and Comodo Icedragon a few times.

Firefox - because of the wide range of add-ons which make life convenient e.g. FxIF 0.4.7.1 which enables me to view most of the EXIF image data with just a right click, if it has been preserved.

Like Clare, I also have AsdBlock but also Lastpass (a secure password keeper) and New Tab Homepage.

I think that NoSquit is my most appreciated addon. It enables me to enlage text size but leave image sizes unchanged.

Thanks
Cool I just added this FxIF viewer, it is cool allows for copy of EXIF data (with a button)
seems nicer then EXIF viewer 2.00 (does give more detailed info and a thumbnail view and even a full view)

I use FF and IE (and now starting to use chrome as well) running two browsers allows for being able to log into to separate accounts at the same time.

Some sites do not work 100% on FF and do on IE and Vice versa.

I also love using the iPad what ever browser it has. And no need to put up with flash....

I've used Firefox for years. I've gotten used to my bookmarks anchored on the left screen and toggling the quick keys crtl-b for bookmarks and ctrl-h for history.

Oh, never tried to toggle the Firefox bookmarks. Interesting. I just drop them down and click them.
