Hey Just wondering what people are using?

I have been using firefox for ages and switch between the news pages like BBC, But they tend to have slow load times, but its nice to have some eye candy instead of the boring google home page.

(Mozilla) SeaMonkey at work and Home - blank home page (speeds up load times and reduces risks of Trojan infection)

Opera at Home

Internet Explorer for a few benighted sites that don't work with SeaMonkey...

If you want to benchmark your browser, or other browsers, on your hardware - try using the Peacekeeper browser benchmark: click - It's a good way of checking performance and it allows you to retrieve your tests at a later date... I found that Opera 10.60 was four times faster than SeaMonkey 2.0.5, however Opera 9.50 was slower (on my work PC)... Apparently they're improving the speed of FireFox 4 (due autumn) to improve it's JavaScript speed massively...

Thanks scene. will have a look at benchmarks, I like firefox for the speed and add ons.

Tried IE for ages and even though it has gotten 10 times better than the old IE releases I still find it a bit slow as too much unwanted garabge on it.

IE8 is my main browser but I also use Google Chrome and Firefox. Started using Google Chrome more than FF as my secondary browser. Have them set to Google UK as my homepage.

Opera primarily - home and work.

Chrome as back-up - home and work.

IE as last resort.

Home page changes depending on what's topical or interesting me at the time.

Firefox with Google as my home page.

I use Firefox with Adblock Plus and NoScript to speed up navigation and increase security.

Chrome for the last year or so having become increasingly cheesed off with increasingly hapless Firefox updates that resulted in more crashware than anything else. I hear that's improved now, but am so happy with Chrome it leaves the rest standing. Very fluid functionality. Google is the preferred search engine and home page.
