    What is your primary Web Browser that you use to access MTBR

    I switch between Chromium and Firefox, but use Chromium most.

    Tapatalk (not really a browser but it is how I get the most content)

    Then about 50/50 Chrome and Firefox depending on the computer I'm touching (Firefox home, chrome work)

    Back around 1999 - 2000 or thereabouts, Internet Explorer 5 for Mac OS was tits on the ritz—the most stable and compliant browser. Dunno why they needed to kill it off for the Mac and head down the decade+ long road to non-standards-compliance, but they did. Since version 6, it’s been a bloated non-compliant turd ever since. I’d been using Safari since 2002 to about 2005, when I discovered Firefox… smooth sailing ever since, with standards compliance and stability (well, there were two or three crashes) at the forefront.

    I have to use IE9 at work and it does not play well with MTBR

    I owned a Mac from 2002-2004 (I've been a Linux user since 2007 for my personal use) and really liked Camino best back then which was a Mac OS X specific browser from Mozilla. This was before Firefox and Chrome was around but they still make it so you might check it out.

    For most browsing, I moved to Chrome when Firefox became so bloated and had memory leak problems a few years ago. Haven't looked back.

    For a few select work sites I use IE8. Can't use IE9 or other non-MS browsers with these sites.

    Chrome, on everything.... smart phone, tablet, laptop browser, except where some stuff I run absolutely has to run IE to function, but that is pretty rare these days.

    Firefox because it works well for me. I did use chrome when it first came out but stuck with firefox strictly out of habit.

    Firefox + Adblock + Element Hider. I haven't found a solution in Chrome that works as well to block ads.
