What Web Browsers do you have installed?

Postby shovenose » 05 Jan 2012, 23:58

On my main PC Laptop I've got Firefox 11 "Aurora" (beta of the beta :P), Internet Explorer 9, Google Chrome, Opera, Maxthon 3, Avant, Netscape Navigator 9 (based on Firefox 2), and Safari.

Why? Because I need to check to make sure that the websites I make for my clients are compatible with at least all the major browsers (Firefox, IE, Chrome, Opera, etc.) and hopefully the minor ones (Maxthon, Avant, etc.)

For general internet browsing I use Firefox. It's the best IMO :)

What about you?

I have Google Chrome Canary on my desktop (which is the computer I usually use). However, I run Firefox Nightly on my laptop. :)

:) how about your phone?
I mainly use Opera Mobile on my android phone because on Ice Cream Sandwich beta for the HTC inspire 4g the stock browser is totally messed up...
Firefox for android sucks unfortunately :(

I have Internet Explorer 9, Firefox, and Google Chrome. I use Firefox the most because some of my college classes are online, and Firefox is recommended for use with our learning system

On my phone I also use Opera Mobile :) The stock browser is daft. Have you seen this shovenose? http://dottech.org/mobile/android/26270/how-to-install-amazons-silk-browser-on-all-android-devices-root-required/ I haven't tried it yet, but I will get round to it. :)

Great :) Let us know how ICS goes. Mine is running fine, although the Radio doesn't work. I don't use it much anyway, so it's no big deal.

I'm running the current versions of Firefox, Safari and IE. Most of my browsing is done with FF but I use IE for a couple of sites.

No Mac here, HP pavilion is my current computer, the three before that I built myself, first one I bought new was a Gateway with a 450Meg PII.
I was having a lot of trouble with my net connection freezing so I installed Safari as a way to check the others, turns out my AVG anti virus was the trouble, it's gone and I'm using AVAST ( A nice Piratey name) now with no problems. I seldom use Safari at all, of the three it is by far the slowest to load a page.

I hate Safari for PC, (on Mac it's not too bad though), and Avast! is the best anti-virus ever! :)

Yep, Avast! is my favourite to, although my dad insists on having the one provided by our ISP, so I can't use it...

AVAST was recommended to me by a computer repairman friend of mine, I trust his judgement. :)
