    Hi there

    Just a quick poll to see what web browsers you mainly use. I have made this poll multiple choice so you can pick more than one, please only vote for ones you use regular. Not including mobile based browsers

    PS: Please can a Mod correct my spelling mistake in the poll it won't let me edit, cheers.

    I use opera mobile on my phone. I use Firefox on my work/home PC. However certain sites still need IE to work right so I use IETab, so I use IE6/7 too really.

    Geoff, I tested opera mobile a while back and found it a bit resource hungry (on a windows mobile htc touch), how've you found it?

    Firefox for browsing, Internet Explorer for the odd site here and there that prefers it.

    And of course for the first URL one should ever type into a fresh format (of Windows, anyway)... www.getfirefox.com


    edit: And I just remembered, I use it for Quidco too. That way I can have been to a site before, but because it's not on IE I garentee the "sent by quidco" cookie is there so I get my money.

    Yes but it's multiple choice. 10 people doesn't mean 10 votes. it could mean 20 which would add up to 200%. The percentage is obviously calculated per person not per selection.

    I love Opera - but have noticed the last couple of versions have been a bit annoying with some long waits as it seems to be dealing with caching or something.
