Exclusively Chrome (Dev) now, basically. Now that LogMeIn uses a separate client app for sessions, I don't even need to load Firefox. Just need to break the habit of using it.

I've been using Google Chrome for the past couple of years.

 

It's funny how perception has changed over the years of web browsers. I remember way back when, when AOL was the lead ISP everyone used that built in browser which was based on mshtml, and you were a loser if you used that. You were awesome if you used IE. Then Mozilla arrived onto the scene, it was thought of a bit geeky to use that over IE. When Phoenix/Firebird came out then that was the one to go for over IE.. and now Chrome seems to have caught up with it now.

 

Safari's just always been Safari. I think when the Windows version came out it was a bit of a novelty to try it out, but I highly doubt many Windows users will be using it now.

I have been bouncing around from Firefox as my main, Chrome mainly for Facebook and Netflix, and IE seldom.  I am trying to work with IE more now, especially after updating the hosts file to stop a lot of ads on other sites.  So far, so good.
