    That's really interesting to see the changes over the past few years or so.

    I used to be 100% Explorer. I got an IPhone5 a year ago and am now about 50-50 Explorer and Safari.

    I feel so antiquated. :oops: So many more using Safari. I use Chrome unless I'm on my iPhone then it is Safari.

    Chrome all the way since 2009 for me.

    Before that, Firefox...but ever since Firefox decided to emulate IE and became a bloated mess, I had to leave it.

    Safari is solid. I use it as part of my testing environment.

    But, at least for now, I still prefer chrome.

    I am about 90% Safari and 10% Chrome. I find the hand gestures on the trackpad of my MBP work better in Safari than in Chrome, which only makes sense.

    Chrome most of the time. Firefox occasionally at home, and Silk on my Kindle fire.

    Still IE for me, at work and home. On my i-Phone I use the WDW Magic app. (Which browser is that using, if any?)

    Chrome! Chrome on the iTouch, Chrome on the laptop, Chrome on the Android tablet...on my Windows RT I'm locked into IE. Hoping Google eventually comes out with Chrome for RT because I HATE IE.

    It would be interesting to know how much of the gains for Safari come from the iOS version versus the OS X version.

    I have Chrome on both my home and work laptops. I still use Safari on my iPad though just because I never remember to install Chrome on there. I use the browser that comes with Android phones too for the same reason.
