Web Browser Comparison

With the latest versions of Apple's Safari and Mozilla's Firefox recently released, it became time for a browser comparison to test whether or not improvements in standards and raw speed have made a difference. This is especially true given the rapid shift in market share from Internet Explorer's one-time dominance: according to Statcounter, Internet Explorer currently commands just 61 percent of the browser market, while Firefox has climbed to second place with 30 percent market share and the last 9 percent shared between Chrome, Opera, Safari and smaller rivals. Click through for our full browser tests to see whether those slices of the market are deserved.

    Yep

    I use only Chrome and Safari. I am forced to use IE for online college, but other than that no other browser for me. I might use Camino on the Mac now and then.

    Why do people use IE?

    The full review asks... why do people use IE?

    Because they're using one or more websites that are optimized for IE, and may only work in IE. It's teh same "application barrier to entry" that keeps Windows dominant on the desktop.
