    Do you run two browsers on your network, or maintain one?

    Just a quick question...we run both Chrome and IE9 on our network as if something doesn't work on one, it'll work on the other...

    Does anyone do the same or should be we ploughing hours of time into fixing IE9 problems!?

    We currently support both Chrome and IE9 on ours. I'm looking to add Firefox into that mix as well sometime soon. On the couple of Macs that we have, there is Safari, Chrome and Firefox. iPads, just the default Safari for now.

    I used to support Front Motion Firefox and IE9 in the base image, but pulled FF out as it was getting to be a pain in the neck to administrate. We ran solo with IE for a while until 10 came about and broke a good number of the sites my staff uses on a daily basis. So Chrome got the nod to go into the image and it has been Chrome and IE10 since the end of last school year. Chrome is easy enough to maintain and the GPO templates are quite nice.

    Likewise :P I'd deploy opera if it had GPO/MSI support. I'm all about user choice nowadays (within reason)

    Run both Chrome and IE here.

    No problems really or special setups. Other than restricting proxy settings via GP.

    IE9 with FF on a couple of machines used by people who modify the website.

    Looking into rolling out Chrome.

    Chrome, and people can run IE (9) if they really want to, but most people use Chrome either because it's better, or because it's in easy reach and they don't care! Either way, it's good news for us!

    We just have ie9 at the moment. I'm in the process of setting up chrome. [Which will be the default.]

    Firefox ended up being a major faff...
