I actually bounce back and forth between IE and Chrome. Hate firefox, always have.

I'd say... usage time in percentages:

Chrome : 60%
IE9 : 40%.

Going back about 4-5 years ago:

Opera : 75%
Firefox : 20%
IE : 5% (for the seldom web page or form that wouldn't work in one browser or another).

For what it's worth, I still have issues with some webpages working properly in Chrome (namely, my banking websites, as well as various credit/loan accounts) and end up using IE for all of that now.

Not really... Google Chrome was the first browser to be exploited this year.

I've had no problems with IE, it has been fairly innovative despite its history.

What happened to Opera? That's a very fast browser.

It's actually not half bad. I've used it at school. The lab computers have IE9 and Firefox installed, no Chrome (which I use on my computers). I've found IE9 to be actually quite good, except it doesn't play as nice as FF or Chrome with Gawker sites like Jalopnik, Kotaku, etc. I don't fault IE9 for it thgouh, the Gawker redesign still absolutely blows..

I read the title with "Bowser", not "Browser".

I give myself +1 cool points.

I really only used Opera for Tribal Wars, if you're familiar with that browser/text-based game. Opera was absolutely greased lightning at the time, and no one else could hold a torch to it... which when you really got to the high end fights of TW... you needed that fast browser. Now? They all feel fast, and I don't play TW... so yea...

I still use Opera on my Android, as it's far superior to the standard browser that came with my Nexus S.

Wow no FF love here? Ever since v7 or so it has been my #1 choice
Just recently I tried Chrome again and It was not bad either but FF still seems faster.

IE 9 is a MUST for our industry as it is the most compatible with corporate software like MS Exchange.

I kinda feel like if you haven't tried FF in the last 6 months then you should. the Rapid release stuff is working for them.

EDIT:
If you like plugins or customization FF is the way to go.

What are these, then?

Mutt (CLI) and Thunderbird for me.

Last time I used Outlook 2010 on my gf's netbook, it took me like... 5 hours to get her hotmail to work with it. At first it straight up refused, went and googled after a while, ended up getting it to log in and send the test mail, then googled some more, then got it to log in and download mail (for the first run), after that it didn't download any new ones. Googled some more, failed some more, googled some more, rinse and repeat a few times for an hour or 2, then finally got it working. And that was trying everything, from the stupid outlook extender thing microsoft makes for hotmail accounts and straight smtp/pop settings.

I can not describe how utterly horrible Outlook 2010 is. But she was dead set on using it and got the license for free, so whatever.

Mutt and Thunderbird, easy. One try, everything works, happy me.

Internet Explorer works great for downloading Firefox. Never had any problems.
