Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
It really boils down to personal preference. Today, I really have no problems with people using any of the big three browsers.
I'd really be most interested to hear why you personally prefer Chrome to Firefox and why you seem not to use IE 9. I'm an oldie, just reverted to Firefox again, and I'm quite happy with it after a year or so with Chrome. I'm asking simply for my own edification.
In this excerpt from Answercast #53, I look at the current state of the top three browsers: IE9, Chrome, and Firefox.
I've used all three. Today, in all honesty, use whichever one is most comfortable for you:
Chrome, Firefox, and IE 9 I now consider to be all roughly equivalent when it comes to things like security and functionality. There are pros and cons to each. They're minor nits.
I personally find Chrome a little bit more streamlined. A little bit faster on some sites.
I didn't use IE for many years because to be honest, IE 7 and IE 8 both had a long way to go with respect to security.
Firefox definitely overtook them for a long time. My experience with Firefox right now is that it's tending to get a little bit slow, a little bloated.
Google being the new one on the block seems to be, for now at least, somewhat more streamlined, somewhat faster.
It all really does boil down to personal preference. Like I said, today I really have no problems with people using any of the big three: IE 9 (making sure it's version 9), Firefox, or Google Chrome.
