    Personally, I use Pale Moon. It's light on system resources and it's good for my old PC, but I use it on both of my computers as I hate the ugly new GUI that FF and Chrome have.

    Still Firefox :), simply because I've been using it for so long I became a fanboy :p
    Although I do use Chrome on my phone.

    I use EDGE (the browser built into Windows) on all my computers, and I use EDGE in my phone aswell...

    Between Firefox and Microsoft Edge which one would you choose to use and why ? I use Firefox because I have been using it for so many years now but I also have Microsoft Edge installed as well but don't use it.

    Firefox. For the simple fact that there a ton of addons for it that aren't available in Edge. Edge is no longer in production anyway as MS is coming out with a new browser based on Chromium.

    I'd like to point out that it's still Edge, it's just got a different back end. Unless they've said they're changing the name Edge isn't going anywhere.

    I'm a stick in the mud and prefer to stick to what I'm used to, Internet explorer worked so I used it, edge works so I use it. I did try using firefox once but it wasn't able to open or display correctly a few distributors websites that I needed to use, so I immediately went back to Internet explorer and since then I have never had the inclination to try another browser.

    I really hope you meant Edge in your last line. Anyone using IE in this day and age is a fool, even MS says so.

    I did mean Internet explorer, but this was years ago before edge and firefox didn't work well for me so I went straight back to Internet explorer, of course I've been using edge since it was released.

    No I understood you meant IE at first but was talking about when you supposedly switched back to IE after using Edge and Firefox before. I used IE back in the day, don't get me wrong, but it's been years.

    I swore off Chrome. The dang browser lost all of my bookmarks - and I had a lot of them. I was able to find them, but not recover them in any useable format. I went back to IE. At least it's never lost my favorites.

    If you are not using Windows XP, I´m sure you are using EDGE (windows new IE)
    And Yes! You still have IE in your computer but you have to search for Interner Explorer in order to find it..

    Nope. I don't like Edge. I have it but only use it to check the weather, 'cause it's faster. It really doesn't have some of the features I'm used to using. So, I'm using IE 11 right now.
