what browser are you using?

so what web browser are you running.

right now on my windows gaming rig im running chrome. but on my macbook air (sandy bridge) i'm switching from safari and Firefox. i remember reading battery draining issues with chrome on mac.

fellow macbook users what you think is better. safari or firefox? i used to hate safari but it seems to have very smooth scrolling and is pretty fast. the zooming with the trackpad like an IOS device is really nice at times as well but the memory usage is just horrid.

I use firefox.

I hate it, but it seems to be the lesser of the evils.

Firefox on PC. Never had any problems.

Safari on Mac. I feel like Firefox would be better but I don't use the Mac that often.

Chrome with IE for the few sites that don't play nice.

FF all day long. Chrome is the next go-to, but I don't like the layout and it takes an extra second with YouTube videos and the like.

Seems like it needs a lot of resources on Android, so if you don't have a phone that ran JB either out of the box or fairly shortly after it was released, don't bother.

My almost 3-year-old phone with a JB ROM doesn't count, stock browser is still way faster.

Note that most people use chrome. This is because Google is the top dog in innovation. Anyone hear about Google Fiber? That's going to make Companies step up their game for sure. Your cable and internet prices will soon have to go down, or else Google is going to crush the other Companies.

Please. Google is innovative, but using their fiber network as evidence is bull****.

I feel like Google is reaching a plateau with their 'coolness' factor that everyone beats their dicks to.
