Title: Which Web browser do you use?
Post by: Sasara on March 06, 2009, 10:56:56 pm
This is an survey to find out which Web browser is the most popular among GCLF users.

It'll be interesting in general to everybody, and help us find out what we can and can't do while adding new stuff to the site, because different browsers don't support some different things. (Especially Internet Explorer, which is very behind on supporting current Web standards.)

Versions aren't specified in the poll, because anyone should update if they're using an old version.

If you switched to a different browser, you can change your vote.

I use Opera 10 alpha, which scores a perfect 100 on the Acid 3 test and only ever crashes on deviantART -- for that, I use Firefox.

I use Mozilla Firefox 3.0.7. and it's really good. It supports a lot of sites/forums I visit, and haven't had any pesky pop-ups either. Only from a website I go to, well two tend to display annoying pop-ups, and so does my forums, so I've been using Firefox, about 3 years.

I use Internet Explorer because it's the main internet on my computer,
and because I'm to lazy to move my mouse over to Safari.

Currently on Firefox. Would switch to something better if Webkit would actually install on my system. >_<

Firefox and Opera user here. I'm writing this post in Firefox, though.

Usually Firefox here. Do do have others for when making websites to check with different rendering engines. But mainly firefox.

Google Chrome, but I would use Firefox when booted into Linux for whatever reason.

I use opera for everything minus whenever we get a habbo server up (which is infrequent and not always worth the effort), and for that I used Firefox. Chrome seems pretty nice though, wouldn't mind switching to that.

I usually use Firefox, but I'm using Opera at the moment, and considering switching to that.

Also, added Konqueror to the poll because it seems to be a slightly-common browser, according to Wikipedia.

Just a note on how the browsers work for me:

Internet Exploder - refuses to load images.
Firefox - gorges herself on RAM and then crashes.
Opera - works great, even though it's in alpha.
Safari - too slow.
Chrome - agonizingly slow.
Konqueror - Linux only, so meh.

All tests were perfomed on my printing/modeling computer:
1.7 GHz AMD Sempron
256 MB RAM
Windows 2000 Pro SP4
16x DVD/24x CD+-RW/52x CD-ROM
80GB HDD

I use an even mix of Firefox and Safari. Firefox at home, Safari at school.

This poll should allow people to give multiple answers because people use multiple browsers.

well, no wonder everything's "too slow". Testing modern apps with 256MB RAM is like saying that Captain Underpants is too hard to understand because your pet dog can't read it

It's mostly about what browser people mainly use, really.

Really? 2GB? You shouldn't need that much for anything. 1GB does just fine for me.

You need 2GB for Sonic 2 HD but THAT'S Sonic 2 HD. :P

I don't see why HD things require 2GB of RAM, I am sure 256 or even 128mb could do HD...  :-\
Inless you are running Vista, that is so memory hungry then I see why. Windows 2000 runs fast with low RAM. (back on the whole test PC thing)

I once tried playing HD video on my laptop (Win2K, 640MiB RAM). It was so slow as to be unwatchable.

I use Firefox (unless I am going insane trying to find something and use Google).
Um, what is Google chrome O_o?
Title: Re: Which Web browser do you use?

Google Chrome (http://www.google.com/chrome) is? a web browser made by Google.

Just switched to 100% Google Chrome. It's really nice so far, hopefully it'll stay that way.

Wait, it only uses like 500MB or something but still...

Internet Explorer and Opera.
Opera comes with the Wii browser.

I use Firefox pretty much all the time.

Except at school. They are still running Internet Explorer. We don't even have access to all the features, and 99% of forums seem to get blocked. Plus it's slow as hell. And someone else at school said the education department or someone was using some kind of "keylogging software" to "track each keystroke and visited website" or something.

Aha. Good portion of Opera users here. I like that. :D
