What browser do you use?

Posted 14 August 2011 - 10:54 PM

Hello everyone, I'm doing some research for a personal project I'm working on and I was wondering what browser do you use? Also if you're running said browser on anything other than Windows could you please specify what operating system you are using?

I use Firefox on both my Windows and Mac OS X machines.

EDIT: Updated to include a poll.

I always use Mozilla Firefox. Almost everybody seems to use Firefox in my country. Sometimes I see guys using Internet Explorer because it is the default browser that comes with Windows; but they use it until they install Firefox. So Firefox is very popular here.

Firefox/Safari on Mac OS X with additional installations of Opera, Chrome, Camino & IE via wine (though that’s only partly useful)

Don't trust browser statistics you get from an informal survey or even official ones from a site like this. Most of us are tech-savvy to use something other than IE, but unless the project you're creating is going to be serving the tech community, then you need to get your stats for whatever group you are serving. If it's the local garden club, I'd guess that every one of them use IE. If it's a convention of computer people, you'll see very low usage. Target audience is everything.

Safari on both Win and Mac.


PS: Why didn't you put a survey on this this? You could have had all the numbers added up for you.

My target audience at the moment is high schools/community colleges/universities as well as general small and large businesses.

Basically just institutions where the members are TOLD what browsers they will be using because policy is set by the IT department, and they have little choice of which browser is installed on computers they don't own.

So... everyone... other than the home users and IT tech community. Which is the people here that you polled.

The results won't be skewed at all... Nawwwwww....

Opera on OSX, Linux, and Windows (and my phones).

Would never even consider using another browser to be quite honest. Obviously in my line of work I'm forced to use IE/Chrome/Firefox and damn, I wish I didn't have to. Really need to start doing software dev full time :D
