What is your favourite browser?

I use Internet Explorer 9 for Windows 7. I think it's okay but is there anything faster or better?

Theres not a lot that's new from what ive noticed. Slightly changed UI pretty much all the options are the same from ie9. I think they focused more on behind the scenes stuff to make it quicker, safer etc. You could prob find a full changelog on the net somewhere but so far I find it to be very quick and stable.

I think IE10 has much better support for things like HTML5. I use Chrome though.

Internet Explorer 10 is really great! But is this still the beta version or something or full release?

I also remember when I used Opera, it's great browsers aswell but I experienced some bugs when I was on YouTube

I don't understand what they are saying here:

Q: Do all my add-ons and plugins work?
A:Your add-ons/extensions work on any version of Firefox, on any platform! That means they all work with Waterfox. On the other hand, only 64-Bit plugins work with Waterfox and as of now those are: Adobe Flash, Oracle Java and Microsoft Silverlight.
Do my extensions work or not?! They didn't give a very good answer, or I'll need to check my add-ons to see if they are compatible with 64-bit versions of the browser.
I just need Adblock Plus, Flashblock, and my PDF-Xchange viewer plugin to work (and of course Flash and Silverlight)

Chrome. Used to be a fan of FireFox but after Flash kept crashing every day I got fed up and moved.

Yeah, I still prefer Firefox and it's amazing amount of add-ons.

It seems to be opening slower and slower though; maybe I need to do a clean install, or it's just the way it is now.
It used to open right after I clicked the icon, now it takes about 3 seconds to pop up.
