IE...is just pathetic.
Chrome can be laggy on big pages and it crashes more than FF for me.
Firefox is the most stable Browser out there. 'Nuff said.
All the others I've never used.

Opera pisses me off sometimes but it is SUPER fast. And for the record, I know I am gonna regret saying that. Ein is gonna kick all of your asses for liking FF.

I've come to realize a lot of the basis of browser performance is based on what computer type you have (ie. brand) and what OS you have (Mac or Windows/PC). For me, I've never had a Mac, but we had them in middle school. Of course, we weren't allowed to download anything, or I would've downloaded IE, because at that point that's what were were using at home. However, the computers at school had Safari and Firefox, and both worked reasonably well. I don't think they crashed at all on me, but the internet connection for the school in general was not very good.

Actually the first browser I ever used was Netscape. Oh was that a mistake. Bad times there. Internet never loaded right, it took forever, etc. That's why I personally see Netscape as the WORST browser.

I have never used Opera, so I don't know how it runs.

@Ruca and YEM, I can see how you guys like Firefox. My dad likes it too, it kills me personally. But I can see and understand how you like it. However, for me, Chrome has NEVER crashed. It only occasionally "cannot find this qwebsite" but usually I just F5 it and restore the page and it works. Not a big enough problem to make me switch browsers. But like I said, it's never crashed.

Oh, and a funny story about IE vs. CHrome. You notice I haven't barely touched IE in this post Well, here's the only thing I'm going to say about it.

My mom's laptop, which she got from my uncle, was freezing pretty much every time she used it. No particular circumstances were routine to make it freeze except for one thing: She was using IE6. Not even the newest IE, but 2 versions ago. So I downloaded IE8 onto the laptop. Well, not only did it freeze the computer, it froze the comp while it was DOWNLOADING. So I told her, "You've got two options. You either want the computer from Siberia, or you want Google Chrome and a computer from Texas." The freezing was pissing her off enough that she relented and let me download Chrome. Now, this was all the night before my nose surgery. So, I was the first to use the laptop with Chrome. Guess what. In the 8 days I had it to use while I was recovering, guess how many freezups:

0

And I wasn't careful to not make it freeze either. I had word documents, youtube videos, Fuji, here, Forumansion (new version), Yahoo, everything I normally do on my desktop open on that laptop, not to mention I downloaded iTunes, and it never froze. Period.

My mom's had it back for about a week now. She's used it a couple times. Normally this would result in a couple of headaches. Not anymore. I deleted IE and the comp works fine. Hasn't crashed in 2 weeks.

I think that alone describes the awesomeness of Chrome. Feel free to debate. I understand firefox users, but I'll argue for Chrome.

And if you read this whole thing, I'll give you a cookie.

To be honest, I've never even tried Chrome...and I only used Opera once. I think I'm gonna try them both out.

And I agree, Ein - Netscape reaaaally sucks. =/

Cookie for me.

I never cared for Chrome. It bores me and it crashes. I can't remember the last time my Firefox crashed, and it's fast. Whatever floats your boat.

Not always - I still prefer Firefox even when I'm using a Mac. Not that I haven't tried Safari...it's nice...but I prefer FF. I'm guessing it's just the comfort level for me, really. Too used to it.

Honestly, I find all browsers very similar and can use any of them and not care too much.

Firefox is just awesome, you can download persona's for free which look awesome, it runs really fast and it's got this a/A thing which makes writing reviews a whole lot easier. Sure, it takes up more space than it should and it doesn't log in for you automatically but that's actually smarter because of security reasons. This is first to me.

Chrome is alright for a browser, it's not my worse browser I've used, however I personality think Firefox is better. It's surprisingly the 2nd fastest browser I've used after Firefox and it's a little bit better with Google media than Firefox. However, it sometimes crashes and it doesn't have the a/A thing which kinda put me off the browser, this is second to me.

Opera is an ok browser, i've only used it for the wii and DS, but apparently it runs well for a console broswer and it even plays media. The media on Opera is supposedly the best there is, and even it's fast for a console. It does occasionally does lose connection, but that's sometimes the modem. Overall, besides lack of use-age, i vote it 3rd.

Safari is an broswer I've only used on the iPhone, so i guess i have to rate it up from there. It's a fast broswer on Mac, but I've only used it on a iPhone, so i'll rate it on there. It's fast for an iPhone, probably even faster for a Mac. The safari on iPhone doesn't crash at any stage, it probably won't on a mac either. It looks modern, which is kinda turns me on in browsers for some reason, so overall, besides lack of useage, i vote it 4th.

Internet Explorer is the broswer i've had used for 10 years, big mistake. It's slow as which is annoying and there is no download manager which sucks. I don't even know why it's the default broswer on almost every computer, if you want a great broswer, Google Chrome and Firefox are your best bet. Internet Explorer freezes when i have 3 programs on, while on Firefox, i can have 8 programs on, and the browser still works fine. Overall, i vote this number 5.

So, here's my opinion about the 5 browsers I've used.
