I have the Aurora browser installed; currently, 7.0 fixes a lot of issues present in 6.0, although you will have to separately install the aurora browser apart from your current firefox installation if you want it. The true bleeding edge is found in the nightly builds (8.0a1 atm), but it's fairly unstable.



None.

4.x and I see no reason to update.
New versions usually introduce new bugs so I always wait when updating programs until there's at least a X.1 version out. I don't know what I should think of the new policy to increment the major version number every minor update.
So unless I stumble upon a good reason for a version higher than 4 I'll stick to it.

None of the above. I use Chrome, and I look down on those who think one particular browser is by default the best. The best browser is one you can use that provides the most benefits to you, regardless of what that browser is.

One notch below people like you, Aristo, happen to be Lingie/DM, whichever one uses I.E. I deleted that piece of shit as soon as I downloaded Chrome.

I remember when I deleted an Internet Explorer shortcut and my mom thought I deleted our Internet.

Chrome with adblock. It's minimalist, just how I like all of my clients. I need a web browser to view pages, I don't need it to do much else.

Firefox started copying some of Chrome's stuff like searching from the address bar and stuff. I don't use firefox and I don't hate it or anything, it's just that I feel more comfortable using chrome

I think at this point, Firefox is only worth using if you like plugins. It has much greater plugin support than any other browser (except maybe Opera) and a much wider selection of plugins to choose from.

But if you're like me and don't give a crap about plugins, Chrome is generally more stable and faster.

Though my dad thought the same, even though he uses FireFox :hurr:

I use Firefox 6.0 (I just updated it a few days ago). Internet Explorer is the only web browser I found that can run some high-def videos on my low end computer (well it's not low end but...) but it also, for some reason, decides that it doesn't like having any sort of pause/skip feature on those videos.

Cool.

Never have those problems on Chrome, or on FF before I switched to Chrome.

For me, Chrome has had significantly fewer hang-ups, stuck pages and crashes than Firefox has.



None.

I find that odd since Chrome has Flash built-in

I order you to forgive yourself!

I used to use Chrome, until the newer updates started to make it very unstable. Then, I waited 1 year and upgraded to Firefox. I realized all the features that made me use Chrome over Firefox were now implemented in Firefox. (Bookmark synchronization, very good screen space, fast speed, etc...)
