I use Chrome and love the fact that it now shows you one which tab audio is being played from. I found it to be such a pain point to have to track down a tab playing some silly AD distracting me from what I was reading. I also am a fan of the automatic updates an inclusion of Flash Player (even though it tends not to be fully stable at times with multiple tabs). Just one less crap I have to download when I setup a new PC.

Which is your favorite, and why?

 

I've been using Chrome for awhile and while I do love it, I always want to try something new so I recently switched to Firefox.  Both have theirs ups and downs but I do enjoy using them both.

i' not a fan of FF because they are still stuck on a single threaded execution model.  With FF when i open my daily 44 tabs it takes much much longer than chrome or even IE who both use MT engines.  I can open all 44 tabs in chrome in less than 45 seconds.  It takes 3 minutes or more for FF to do that.

44 tabs?! I don't think I'd even know where to start!

Been using Chrome almost exclusively  for a couple of years now. I keep IE as a backup as not every web site is compatible with Chrome.

I've been using IE11 for a while now. I tried Chrome but it didn't seem to be much of an improvement so I went back to IE. Chrome syncing with android was neat at first until I realized I don't use the web browser on my mobile devices much when most app's work a lot better.

My mother uses IE10 on her laptop, and I had to do something for her the other day and couldn't believe how "slow" it was!  Google Chrome just seems so much speedier.

 

I once had a 20-minute discussion with my grandparents about the difference between Google Chrome, the browser, and the website Google.com.  They thought they were the same thing ... oy vey!

At home its Chrome unless I need to go tot he Sprint site which works better in IE for some reason. At Work, its mostly IE on the work pcs and on the laptop its Chrome.

I use Chrome on the PC and Firefox on the phone. I have tried Chrome a number of times on the phone and really try to like it but it just doesn't feel right.

Yeah I know. But chat works a tiny bit better with IE as well as their community forums. Its basically the only site that just acts weird on my Chrome. Other than that i wouldn't touch IE at all,( well except for work stuff, forced by the IT folks).

Opera.  It handles multiple tabs better than any other browser I have used.

 

The only annoyance is that you often have to fake your user agent to identify as Internet Explorer because a lot of stupid web designers check for Opera and either put up a message or redirect you.  It has this feature built in, probably because old versions (Before 8) of Opera were a little off compatibility wise.

    • Some recent non-urban new builds in Utah, which are a mix of Sprint conversions and new site builds: Central Cedar City Enoch Parowan Beaver Wallsburg I'm also hearing of future new site builds in places that currently have weak / no signal on all carriers like Fountain Green, Oak City, Woodland, and along Hwy 191 in the canyon north of Helper by the Power Plant. There are also an unbelievable number of Sprint conversions happening in the urban Wasatch Front corridor as well. 
    • Only time I have gotten a free sim from them is when I "purchased" some "free" phones from T-Mobile, unless I go back to when they were a distant 4th carrier.  My four other MVNOs are feast or famine, so I try to keep several hanging around.  I have noticed different versions have different capabilities, and newer is not always better.  They typically force you to upgrade when you need to activate another discount period.  
    • Hard to imagine they're actually worth much as easy as they are to get free though.....they keep sending them out unsolicited like nuts.  We just got like a 3rd packet of them less than a month ago and got another email notifying "SIM card is on the way".  
    • E-bay.  The physical sims do have one advantage: they are not tied to your phone, thus you can change phones mostly without your carriers permission (except Sprint billing). Benefits signal hunters, travellers, and thieves.
    • Maybe in a museum? When the phone manufacturers follow Apple’s lead and go all eSIM it will be a moot point. At least in the states.
