What web browser do you use?

I'm sure there had been several threads about browsers before but I want to know the recent situation.

I'm using Safari simply because I own a Mac but my favorite is Chrome.

Firefox, but also Internet Explorer 9, which beats the hell out of anyone in terms of speed.
Can`t wait for the final version of it!

IE is back in fashion it seems. I have XP so no internet explorer 9 browsers for a while for me. This is a very hot topic right now. I had safari for a while but I had to ditch it; its a bit ugly and bulky for windows, I switched to Opera last night.

My main browser has been Opera for years now, I simply can't imagine using any other browser on a regular basis. I did try Firefox for a while but it kept having problems with keyboard navigation where moving between tabs would mean not being able to use page up/down on a page until I click with the mouse to give it focus.

Opera has by far the best keyboard shortcuts (Ctrl + Left Click to save images for example, 1 and 2 for moving between tabs).

My weekly rant!

27th May 1965: Over 16,000 days.

"For a moment there I returned to my youth, the early youth, when all nice illusions were gathered together. Then life came and, like a strong wind, blew them away, one by one. What we call happiness is sometimes the accordance between our life and circumstances, our biography and history, our personal aspirations and historical currents. If I look at things that way, I can say: I was born too early to be happy. But birth is one of the many things we do not get to choose. It is part of our destiny."

Haven't used Opera on mine.

Why would you not want to use Safari on a Mac?

I do - in fact I am using one now hehehehehe

But it's still worth giving Opera a go I think. It's a very nice, likable and fast browser. Lets see how it does on the mac...after I solve the iTunes issue.

Better than Safari on Mac. It actually puts Safari to shame....

There are some very minor compatability issues though
