Internet & Networking According to StatCounter's figures (whatever they're worth) Chrome is now the most popular browser in the world, overtaking Internet Explorer for the first time. How times change. Let's hope Google, Firefox, and Opera have some good Metro stuff coming up, because IE on Windows 8 has a terrible UI.

Well, I use the top 4 rather heavily (IE and Firefox on Win 7 and Firefox on SUSE at work, Chrome on Ubuntu at home, and Safari on my iPad pretty much everywhere).

I have a mild preference for Chrome, because it "feels" faster. Of course, Tom's Hardware did extensive testing that indicated Chrome was the best Linux browser, while Firefox works best on Windows.

But I agree that Firefox is by far the most customizable, and the later versions "feel" much better (the ones that mimic Chrome, I'm afraid). But I'm glad you've found a browser you like.

Happily, we have excellent browser competition again, and for that I'm totally delighted. And in smartphones, too. Now if we can just get some serious desktop OS competition going...
