    Google Chrome, then Firefox (on Linux), then IE (because when I click a link in my corporate email application it goes to IE).

            importing bookmarks shouldn't be a problem. I think I saw a blog post somewhere that Chrome 2.0 is available now. There weren't any huge feature changes, they said some site rendering speeds were improved, there's a true full screen mode, and maybe a few other little things.

            I use mostly Chrome, but occasionally I come across a website it doesn't play nice with and have to use IE. Also, some of the custom web based applications my company uses doesn't work properly in Chrome so I have to keep IE around for that reason.

                    IE on one machine, Chrome on the other.

                        It's great to see everyone discussing this topic

                        Hi all,
                        I am new to the forum and feel great to see that this type of topic is even being discussed. I am a software developer who started working with contractors in late 2005. Many people told me that I was crazy to try to provide solutions to contractors since no one cares, or understands, etc. While this type of question was common just a few years ago for other industries, it would never have come up in this industries. Forums like this make me really feel that I made the right decision since its obvious that you all are looking to be ahead of the others who still do not get what it takes to be ahead. Thanks for the motivation. I have some statistics to provide based on visitors to my site, and I will check back in later so that you can see more details from another perspective. Good luck all.

                            Statistics for FireFox vs Internet Explorer

                            Hi all,

                            86.6% of the last 23,000 visitors to our site (as of February 21, 2009) where using IE. 10.7% use Firefox and 1.7% use Safari. The breakdown of IE versions to our site is:
                            Version 7 is 91.72%
                            Version 6 is 7.76%
                            Version 8 is .49%
                            Version 5.5 is .03%
                            Version 5.0 is .01%

                            Out of the 10.7% that use Firefox, the vast majority have indicated that they will use two browsers when it comes to switching between applications since most contractors do not seem to care about the specific differences.

                            I admit there are some times that we loose a customer simply becuase the browser is that important to them, but it is rare.

                            My suggestion is to decide what is needed for your business and then use the appropriate browser for that functionality, then use whatever browser you need for other tasks that may not be that relevant to your business day.

                            There are a lot of fish to fry in a business day and the browser shouldn't be an obstacle to making any application decisions. Good luck all.

                              FireFox. Started using Chrome, but switched back (out of habit, not performance).
