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.

Not heard of that browser before. Downloaded and trying it out. Like Pine Man it is very fast and easy to use.

Maxthon isn't a bad browser by any means - it's actually based on the Internet Explorer engine, so may feel familiar to many people.

Unfortunately it isn't particularly fast, although lots of users seem to think otherwise. I ran some controlled speed tests, and it was beaten hands down by Google Chrome. It was also slower than Internet Explorer and Firefox. It has a big following in Mainland China, and it's slowly gaining a userbase in the West, although it has a very long way to go.

There's a reason why the big browsers are so popular - they're the best available.

With Maxthon you have to have at least IE6 installed according to the system requirements, this suggests to me that it's nothing more than an IE skin, Internet Explorer is doing all the work underneath, so it isn't really a standalone browser, no IE then no Maxthon.

Iceweasel - a Firefox derivative, but only because of the development tools available. Otherwise I use and like Opera and Chrome.

Maybe. And maybe microsoft bundling internet explorer with every version of windows sold has had some impact on the figures as well.

ams4127 I have just noticed your comment about Opera and the iPad. Tried it and agree with you, it beats Safari hands down. Thanks.
