    To paraphrase the "Most Interesting Man in the World". I don't often use a browser to read DBSTalk, but when I do, it's Chrome.

    True, but I can understand why it's not included in polls.

    I voted Safari only because it is the standard browser on my IPad. On our PC it's Firefox.

    Safari, mostly because it syncs bookmarks so nicely to my iPad. I do have FF and Chrome at my fingertips though.

    Exactly the same here.

    I do have Chrome installed on both the desktop and tablet, but use them only when certain websites "misbehave" in their renderings, which is rare.

    Firefox!

    IE tends to take up too much memory, and I have too many errors with it, so I mostly use Firefox for browsing.

    Firefox on my desktop computers unless a site demands IE.
    I agree with 1953 -- I don't really care for the mobile app - I prefer using a browser on my mobile devices.-- either FF or the default browser.

    I use FireFox from force of habit, but Chrome, Safari and IE9 are all fine browsers, IMO.

    Chrome all the way for me! I use the mobile app on my Android Phone and Tablet although sometimes Chrome on the tablet too.

    I like Chrome so much I just spent the better part of two days troubleshooting a conflict that was created with it and a new application our IT department pushed to my work laptop. It turned out to be the video drivers of all things but I couldn't stand the thought of switching my default browser from Chrome!
