Retina MacBook Pro:
Safari Nightly

Windows 8 Desktop:
Firefox Aurora


I'm using my MacBook more often than my gaming machine, so I voted Safari


I must say though that Chrome Stable, Firefox Aurora and Opera are also installed on the Mac

Chrome.

If IE had a good pop up blocker then I would use that instead. AdBlockPlus didn't work.

On Win8: Chrome Stable, IE10


Seems like everyone has the same idea on Windows 8. :D. IE 10 mainly and Chromium secondary for me.

On my main computers (win8 desktop and ubuntu laptop) i use firefox beta. On my slower work computer I use opera at the moment, but sometimes switch between opera and chrome.

I like IE 10, but it only runs on Windows and has no sync.

I like Firefox's independence, but its sync is too hard to setup. Plus, the Android version... Well, I don't like it.

Safari, I guess it's okay, but, like IE, lacks cross platform support.

Thus, I use Chrome. I'd like to get away from Google, but it gives me the most comprehensive sync across all platforms; Windows, Mac, Linux (Ubuntu), Android and iOS.


What's so hard about setting up firefox sync? Not as quick as just signing into a google account in chrome, but I certainly don't think its prohibitively difficult, its only a few steps. I just emailed myself my recovery key so I can always access it to set up the sync. Firefox can also sync across every platform you mentioned, I have it syncd on my windows computers, my ubuntu laptop, my android tablet...
