Default What web browser do you use?

Rather simply, which one do you use? I tend to use Firefox on my laptop, and Explorer on the main PC. But as I use my laptop the most I'll go with Firefox.

Oh, and as this about web browsers, here is a very funny film I found on the subject:

I use just explorer on my home PC.... the ones in college have a few of them on it so I change to explorer when I can. I've had problems with firefox before so I don't trust it much.....

If you shit in one hand and wish in the other we all know which one will fill up faster.

Firefox 3 fixes one hell of a lot of the problems FF2 had, though it still has a tendency to leak memory easily.
I personally use FF and Opera mostly, but when I'm making websites, I usually test them on as many as possible, so I have FireFox 3, Opera, IE7, Chrome and Safari installed.

Im a Mac fanatic so I used to hold on to safari cause it was so simple and never really gave me problems regardless of what other people said.

But man, after seeing some of the add-ons you can get for firefox....
that changed my mind.

Firefox all the way.

You must of been using old as shit comps man because I have had mine for like 1 and half years now and it hasn't crashed even once yet. And I'm playing running big programs on it like Age of Empires III (the newest one) and engineering simulators. You're getting a skewed perspective there.

They do cost more, I'll give you that but you get what you pay for.

Everything is simpler and functions better on a mac.
