    Your argument is Firefox is better because it's older?

    ...I don't even have to argue against that, by that argument IE is the best browser out there.

    Pretty sure Netscape came before IE and doesn't afraid of anything.

    Lol based on that logic we should all be getting WorldWideWeb again, and lol I was going to say netscape until I thought about Mosaic XD We still have a copy of that on our uni servers to show us how far we've come coding wise lol.

    I vote chrome. The address box/toolbar is too fat in firefox.

    I've tried IE9, it's a great step in the right direction but it's still too clunky, and still loads pages far slower.

    I have to agree with the hentagonist, I use my browser to view web pages, not to check my email, rss feeds, the weather and the current location of my cat provided by a state of the art gps tracker.

    I use an obscure web browser you've probably never heard of. *puts on thick rim glasses*

    About the same here, just add in the email bit, flash games, and youtube (when not bandwidth limited <.<)



    I do recall with my Celeron D pc, before the change to satellite, using Firefox 2.0 and able to keep about... 12 tabs of YouTube videos open before it started lagging my PC xD

    Haven't tried IE9 yet, I do know this version of Windows 7 im using came with IE8... that never worked (Refused to run, process would start but nothing graphical would come up)



    I am happy with Firefox 4. Yes, even with its bugs (Besides, I have Opera 10.63 as a backup if Firefox derps on something :p )

    Opera is indeed an excellent browser, I started using it for about a year when I was still in school, but ended up going back to Firefox and transitioning into Chrome.

    What I loved about Opera was just the way it handled, and I think that's what drew me to Chrome as well.

    Your acting as if google chrome doesn't have adblock etc, what i'm saying is that my screen is taken up by the webpage, not by the browser. I should also mention that chrome has the best accessibility options for my level of vision.

    AdBlock doesn't work as well on Chrome because of the lack of a functioning OnLoad event, all ad blockers for Chrome use cheap tricks to hide it, not as effective as FF just removing it before downloading the resources..

    "Adding useless HTML5 stuff but not critical stuff"



    LOL a few silly customizable options is nowhere near as critical as the first large-scale HTML update in years.

    something that isn't supposed to be in a recommended state until 2014 as far as I know :p



    It was just released for people to test (and try to break) not long ago.



    Oh, and Firefox 4 does have HTML5 support.
