We ran this same poll last year, so it's about time we ran it again to see how things have moved on, and who is winning in the battle of the browsers.

Let us know what web browser you use the most in our poll.

I too used to like netscape, but then went almost unwillingly onto IE. Stayed with it until about 3 months ago when my impatience at the resource hogging bloatware that IE evolved into finally overcame my natural inertia (aka laziness) and I made the switch to chrome.

I feel like I've got my machines back again, it's such an improvement. I think MS are going to have to seriously raise their game if I am ever going to move back.

Netscape Navigator

Netscape Navigator was a good browser, I'd just started using it when they shut up shop as they could no longer afford to compete with Microsoft.

Towards the end they handed the code over to the Mozilla foundation to carry on development, so Firefox is possibly how Netscape Navigator would have ended up.

One side effect of Netscape's demise is that Microsoft decided they'd won the browser war, and pretty much stopped development of Internet Explorer.

Firefox 12 in Windows & Linux, I only use IE for updating Windows, I no longer use Chrome as I find it intrusive.

"Unfortunately the online world disagreed"

When I made this comment earlier, a few years ago, I seem to recall that you agreed with me, and blamed machinations at AOL, not the on-line world, for its demise!

During the recent fuss about Chrome data collection policies I switched to SRWare Iron which is a (German) Chrome clone. It looks and feels exactly the same as Chrome but supposedly without the intrusion (or maybe with it switched OFF by default?). I've no idea if that side of it works or not but the browser is fine so i'll just stick with it.

I tend to use Firefox for most things but still use IE9 for my banking. I did download Chrome some months ago and it sits on my bottom tray but I have not yet used it. No particular reasons for what I do as it is probably just what I'm used to doing.

Firefox for main browser, Chrome for PCA website and IE as a stand-by, but hardly used. First two give much less problems?.

Chrome, all of the time! It is by far and away the best and most secure browser out there! (in my opinion, of course!)
