Browsers and more browsers (IE9, Firefox 4, and chrome)

What browser do you use. I’m a chrome user. Have been for about a year. The features that draw me to chrome are the very simple view with tabs, easy search by the address bar, and sync of the bookmarks. Also, did I mention speed.

These great features that set chrome apart are not part of both IE9 and the new Firefox. I’ve read the reviews of each and decided to try them for myself. I have to say that I’m impressed.

So far I’ve found that the good features (download manager, minimal window size, and speed) have all been addressed by firefox and ie9.

In terms of reasons to use a browser, I’ve been in love with firebug on firefox for a long time for development. however, recently I’ve been using the inspect element in chrome as well.

In my own personal test I was taken by the performance of FireFox. It appeared to run faster and open quicker than before.

Though I’ve started using FireFox as the default browser for the last 2 days, I have also been using ie9.
IE9 has incorporated a lot of nice features from both FF and chrome. I even like the on browser modal notification for downloads and issues.

Overall both browsers have succeeded in adding new features, being faster, more secure, and more of a minimal feel. Can’t wait to see what else is coming.
