    I use Firefox on my main PC and notebook (and on my main laptop before the power jack crapped out on me), and Safari on my tablet. I used to use Opera a long time ago but stopped when...well, I don't really remember why I stopped using it. I used to use IE on my notebook for a while because I rarely used the device for anything other than pure writing/note-taking (so I didn't bother installing too much other crap besides Word, TeXnicCenter, OneNote, and Acrobat), but when I started using it for more leisurely purposes, I installed Firefox. So, like others have mentioned, I use and have used more than one browser.

    I use IE. Basically it suits my needs and I don't have any issues with it with the limited amount of internet stuff I do.

    I tried Firefox a few years ago, and it was fine, but when it came to a site I use regularly (flickr), at the time and on my older computer, it was much slower / I ran into weird issues which didn't happen with IE, so I went back to IE.

    Also a few years ago someone told me I 'had to start using Chrome' because it was 'way better than any other browser', so I'm like, ok, I'll check it out. I downloaded it, used it for a bit, but in the end didn't think it was a value-add for me. The format actually kind of annoyed me. So I defaulted back to IE.

    Again though, I really don't use the internet beyond a handful of sites that I go to regularly - and IE hasn't been an issue with any of them.

    Haha, ironic, isn't it. I totally get people making up these studies, throw in a few big names, give it a little twist. It's good publicity and if done right can even make quite a buck from it. But to think people actually take these results seriously, hilarious.

    I thought it was bullshit they were suggesting people use only one browser.

    I liked the Fox News headline:

    Internet Explorer Users Aren't Dumber After All

    I think they were happy to reassure their supporters.

    Headlines should read: "Meaningless study proves to be hoax, we had nothing to say before and we still do not!"

    Already assumed it was fake already when reading the lines "The results suggested that Internet Explorer surfers had an average IQ in the low eighties." and "while minority browsers Opera and Camino had an "exceptionally higher" score of over 120."

    I mean come on. If you're going to make a fake study, at least keep your fake data on reasonable levels.
