Which Web browser do you use?
« 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. >_<

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.

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
