What browser do you most use to access the forum?

I wondered if the forum stats are actually correct; they show almost no IE use at all.
Never tell me the odds.

I know it makes me a total chav, but I like the way web content looks with IE, and I can't recreate it exactly with other browsers (except for those based on IE).

Firefox on the Linux boxes, Safari on the iPhone.  Opera occasionally.

IE never.

Seems likely.  Even the non-geeks on here are fairly geeky, or at least inclined to follow "use Firefox, it sucks less" advice from those in the know.

Which leaves those forced to use IE on work computers.  Presumably that sort of thing tends to correlate fairly strongly with firewall rules or policies that preclude the exchange of loosely bicycle related knowledge, smut and innuendo on work time?

Firefox from home.   By choice.

IE at work where I have no choice.

Safari on 4 devices, never IE. Very occasionally Firefox or Opera.
