@OmSigDAVID,
Firefox, for 2 reasons: far easier to use (after you check out the "tools" options) and because of its far superior support of HTML5.

@OmSigDAVID,
Those statements were not entirely true. The following all support HTML5.

•Firefox 4 (WebM, Beta available here)
•Google Chrome (WebM and h.264)
•Opera 10.6+ (WebM, Available here)
•Apple Safari (h.264, version 4+)
•Microsoft Internet Explorer 9 (h.264, Beta available here)
•Microsoft Internet Explorer 6, 7, or 8 with Google Chrome Frame installed (Get Google Chrome Frame)

@OmSigDAVID,
Neither. Google Chrome is better in terms of page loading speed, stability (doesn't crash as often), and in terms of system resources (it doesn't bog down one's CPU like the monstrously sized IE).

How is Chrome as to toolbar features (e.g., calculator, etc.) ???

@OmSigDAVID,
I only use three extensions: IE page converter; the Add to Amazon Wish List button; and the Add This webpage share button.

But they seemingly have a lot of extensions to add to the tool bar:

@OmSigDAVID,
Right-click on any clickable link, then choose one of the 2 top options ("open in new tab" is usually easier to follow). Happy 2011 Smile

@ossobuco,

@OmSigDAVID,
i love it, i never got to run any windows platforms after xp, but i've had none of the windows problems i had with platforms 95 through xp (buggy, slow, crashes), viruses are practically non existence (but i was always pretty careful on windows, and never had a major virus or malware problem)
