    So the Internet browser wars are heating up.

    IE9 released today, quite a few big changes;
    Chrome 10 was released a few days ago;
    Firefox 4 is very close to being released, also with some big changes.

    I'm a solid Firefox fan and have both Chrome and IE9 installed, pretty sure I'll still be a FF fan when they release v4.

    So how do you surf the net on your pc?

    At long last.The wife uses IE, and I get really annoyed if IE is open on my PC as the damn browser always freezes or it is slower than Magman's Nissan.

    Hope there is some useful changes to Firefox.

    100's of members online but nobody votes. You must put some gadget on Dean that prevents people from reading anything unless they vote on a poll so that we can always have a good idea of what is cooking....... :p..... no, serious :thumbup:

    I use chrome 99% of the time,I really like it but every now and then you get small issues (some java and flash applets just dont work)

    the other 1% i use Safari :D

    As a side note, I used to use FF, but found all the addons and extensions slows it down and makes the UI look waaaay too busy for me

    Opera is my preferred choice,it just works perfectly plus TURBO is a feature every browser should have I feel especially when the network is slow.I use opera mini on my phone and with opera sync all my bookmarks etc are synched easily even on a new device I dont have to do 100 things to set it up.

    At work I sometimes use firefox but I still enjoy opera more.

    Only issue I have currently with Chrome, is that between Chrome and Shockwave flash there are a issue. Shockwave crash all the time. Like the sponsors banner screens that flash at the top.
    changing your shortcut key properties on desktop to
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" -enable-internal-flash
    works, then shockwave does not crash.

    But then if you open Chrome from a link in a e-mail, then it will still crash as you did not start Chrome with the last bit. If chrome is open, then selecting a link in an E-mail will just open another tab in the open session, and will work.

    Just wish Chrome can get this one sorted. Pain in the butt.
