I'm getting sick and damn tired of Firefox randomly crashing. Which Browser do you use and is there a definitive answer to which is most reliable?

Lol, I put server browser instead of internet in the poll. Go me.

Firefox 3.6. Not many issues here. Is there something similar to Ad Block Plus for Chrome? If so I might consider trying it out.

I bounce around between Internet Explorer and Firefox.

For the past six to nine months though, Firefox crashes more often than you think it should. For me, IE is mostly rather stable.

I've been using Firefox for years, but on my old PC (which had bluescreen and freezing issues in general) it started bluescreening on me so I switched to Opera. Quite alright.
On my current PC Firefox works without a problem though, so I'm back to that now.

I'm a creature of habit.

Same. Used FF for god knows how long, tried Chrome a year or so ago, never looked back.

(well, actually I have tried the new FF releases as well, but I still feel Chore is a step ahead)

Firefox.

I don't know anything about browsers, aside from the fact that IE is poo.

I loved FireFox and it took some convincing from my friend but he finally got me to try Chrome.... Glad I did!

I still use Firefox the odd time and it makes me realize just how quick Chrome is.

QFT! Been using it since about '99, even purchased it when it wasn't free. It is fast and has tons of features for those who want to tweak.

Only drawbacks are that it is a bit behind FF and Chrome and fancy new HTML5 stuff and WebGL and all that, and it lacks the great extensions FF has. But its speed and features more than make up for it. Integrated AD-block ftw!

opera is the best i've tried - i first used it to run on a low spec laptop hearing it was low on resources and then figured in that case why not use it on any machine.
that said I do stay with IE on my gaming pc where all i do is dload patches.

I'd most likely move from FF to GC but i can't for the life of me figure out how to turn the downloads bar off when you DL something.
It's redundant to show me what funny **** i'm saving if i know i clicked them. :(

Well, looks like Firefox is giving me an error. Despite not even restarting my PC today, links I open default to IE... even though I went to Tools/Options and ensured Firefox is infact my default browser. :mad:

IE is too slow and is a huge resource hog. Perhaps I will finally have to get Chrome... but if Win7/IE over rides that to, I guess I am screwed either way.

I used Opera for three years until 2011. I liked that it has lots of built-in features and user interface is nice, but it's noticeably slow when loading/rendering pages.

Chrome, FF, IE9 all beats Opera in page loading times, so I used IE9 for a while but now I'm back at Chrome, it's lightweight and really fast.

Chrome has always served me well, but for no reason lately it's been freezing up alot lately, mainly when there are videos on the page that use Flash. It seems my Flash plugin is crashing, and I get this weird memory reference error.

I'm thinking it's a PC issue and not a Chrome one. Other than that, it's been serving me well. Firefox used to be my choice, but like Feddy says, it started crashing like crazy on me so I switched.
