I'm using Iceweasel on my netbook now but I voted Firefox because, as the name suggests, it's just a modded/optimised version.

Firefox. I like firefox better than the others.

If I'm away from home I use Firefox for Android on my tablet. If I'm somewhere without wifi and want to get online I turn my phone into a wifi hotspot and still use Firefox for Android.

I've changed my vote from Firefox to Something Else - Pale Moon, based on pre Australis-themed Firefox.

Be warned that your customisations may be badly messed up if you let Firefox update to v29 - at least on a PC, I don't know about Android.  You might want to turn auto updating off.

Secondary browsers I've got installed include Slimboat - can emulate Safari, amongst others.

Oh.

I thought google set us free; free to browse without fear.  Cookies and downloads all the days of our life.

Clearly you live in a different world to me.  Was it a choice thing?  Or the pension?  I guess for a good pension I'd use whatever browser I'd been given.

Let's see. On my own PCs it's Firefox. At work, Internet Explorer.

Can you guess, gentle reader, which version of IE I have to use at work?

No... I cannot say... it's too awful to even contemplate.  :facepalm:

Something with a devastatingly low Number, I should think.  At the BigCo were had to run (IIRC) IE6 as the crappy terminal emulation SCIENCE wouldn't run with anything more "advanced".

Well guessed Mr Larrington. Yes, I'm still having to use IE6. Which is deastating in so many ways.

That reminds me of the state-of-the-art digital sound desk I was faced with at work, which booted up as ... Win98. 
And then crashed out to the blue screen of deth

Just Chrome these days.  Firefox has become way too slow for the lapdancer and while Chrome is annoying on the iPad, Safari is even more so.  Take that, Mega-Global Fruit Corporation of Cupertino, USAnia!

Still Pale Moon for me, but it's getting a bit big for its boots and changed its globally unique identifier From Firefox's to "reflect the continuing divergence between the browser and its sibling".  This has stopped some addons working.  They've also dropped Windows XP (Atom version excepted).

Oh the "PC Refesh" project - they hate me reminding people they promised to have finished in 2013 - has recently e-mailed everyone saying they are now committed to upgrading everyone from Windows XP to Windows 7 in 2015.

Internet Explorer 6... it lives on :(

Not sure if it's just me, but Chrome – which has been my preference for a while – seems to be very crashy of late. Pages hang on the Mac and PC versions and the iPad version occasionally goes pop. All seems fine in Safari.

Safari on my iPad2 (iOS8) is very, very slow, and crashes quite often. I find I'm hard quitting the app when I need to use other stuff on the iPad. OK, it's an iPad 2, but a browser shouldn't tax it that much!

It's Apple's way of telling you that you're behind the times (me too, I'm still using an iPhone 4).

Today will be a day of temptation, I hear a rumour of a new retina-display 27 inch iMac... don't tell my c2009 Mac Mini.

It does seem to be certain pages that kill Chrome - the Guardian (*cough*) for instance.

Chrome seems OK for me under Windows 8.1 but, in common with many things, is a bit flaky under IOS 8.0.2 and if I see that "No SIM Card Installed" message once more today then there may well be an arson attack on the nearest premises of the Mega-Global Fruit Corporation of Cupertino, USAnia.

Edit: yes, the Grauniad's webby SCIENCE is well-nigh unusable now.  A pox on the Mega-Global Fruit Corporation of Cupertino, USAnia and all its white mice >:(

I have read that Windows Edge won't support ad-blockers.  If this is right it can FRO.
