    What web browser do you use? I currently use Firefox but…

    I have been using Firefox for sometime, but it seems to be getting flakier and requires frequent restarts.

    I am not running a crazy amount of extensions:

    • AdBlockPlus
    • ColorfulTabs
    • Context Menus Plus
    • Download Status Bar
    • Flashblock
    • HTTPS-Everywhere
    • InFormEnter
    • Link Alert
    • PDF Download
    • Power Twitter
    • Tab Counter
    • WOT

    So, I am thinking to moving to something else.

    Suggestions?  What web browser do you use?

    1. I’m still using Firefox as my principal browser and it’s flakier for me too. If I were starting from scratch I’d use Opera.

    2. Chrome for normal browsing.

      Firefox for web development.

      Safari for crap.

    3. Thanks guys. I have used chrome a little bit. It seem s pretty stable. I haven’t tried opera in years. I will give it a look.

    4. My experience? The flakiness seems related to the computer I use it on. My 7 year old (ye, gads . . .) laptop forces me to treat it with kid gloves, but my Dad’s computers handle it just fine.

      Opera handles it a bit better, but not by much. I’ve also had Safari and Chrome on there, but they don’t seem to allow the carrying of tabs between sessions; I carry tabs routinely, so I don’t have much experience with them.

    5. I’m obviously biased, but I use IE9 on my Win7 machines, and IE10 on my Win8 machine.

    6. I am trying out “Better Facebook”.

    7. I use chrome now…
