9/10/2011 11:23:00OS X10.6 Snow LeopardGoogle Chrome (OS X)It's faster than other browsers., It has better features.Chrome is so much snappier compared to the other browsers. I also really like the tight integration with all of Google's services and products, specifically offline Google Docs, and offline Gmail.

2/13/2012 11:21:47Windows7Mozilla Firefox (Windows)It has better features., OpensourceCustomization. With XUL and userChrome.css, about:config, and the plethora of extensions, Firefox is one of the most customizable pieces of software. Let us not forget Mozilla's humanitarian efforts. :)

2/13/2012 11:26:01Windows7Internet Explorer (Windows)It has better features., It is more secure than other browsers., It skins well with WindowBlindsIt has hardware accelerated rendering that's tested to be better than third party browsers. It also runs much better than previous versions of IE, and adheres to web standards much better than previous browsers. It's also just convenient because while it's a good browser in its own right, it also is compatible with the oddities of websites designed for previous versions of IE.I switch back and forth between IE9 and Chrome. Primarily using IE because of its ability to play nice with WindowBlinds skinning software. I personally do not like to use Firefox because I find it to be lacking in stability. I got very fond of Chrome's feature of isolating each tab and plugin in its own process which meant if one tab crashed, it wouldn't bring the browser down itself, and if a plugin crashed, you could still view the website. IE doesn't implement its stability in the same way but in the same way that Chrome won't crash the entire browser when a tab crashes, IE9 handles a crashed tab without bringing down the entire browser, too. I haven't experienced something similar on Firefox, yet.

2/13/2012 11:26:10Windows7Mozilla Firefox (Windows)It has better features., extensions, open sourceIt's open source.

Extensions: more specifically, Adblock, greasemonkey, scrapbook, many others.
Netscape releasing Mozilla as open source, and then continuing to fund development, ensured the open web stayed an open web. I haven't forgotten that, even though at times the speed and usability of Chrome have been attractive.

Also it supports HTML5 - IE8 doesn't, and as a web developer I have been dying to try out some of the new features but they weren't supported, so I switched
I love the speed - on my system SuperUser (for example) loads in Firefox literally 5 times faster than IE

It adds vi style bindings and a buffer system to your browser, such that you don't have to use a mouse at all, if you so choose. It is perfect! Some other good add-ons are adblock and zotero, but I think you can get both of those in Chrome.

Everytime their was a major upgrade, some extensions stopped working for a while. I switched to Chrome from Firefox when FF seemed to be using an excesive amout of memory, and have sandboxing. I think FF has caught up, but inertia has kept me from switching back.

2/13/2012 16:43:40Windows7Mozilla Firefox (Windows)It has better features., mutlitouchI love chrome but am switching back to Firefox gradually.

#1 : Firefox has multitouch support. My main system now is an ASUS Ep121.

#2 : I like the group tabs. I haven't utilized it much yet, but I like the option

#3 : Firebug. It's still better than Chrome toolkit (or whatever that is called)
Chrome had been my go-to for quite a while. I use a lot of google services and it handled memory better than FireFox when I switched. I don't seem to notice lag from either now.

IE has multitouch support out of the box on my ASUS but didn't have enough features to compel me to go back. I still resent IE6 for making web design a nightmare.

2/13/2012 18:00:40Windows7Google Chrome (Windows)It's faster than other browsers., It has better features.- Multithreading (I use tons of tabs, and 4-8 core systems w/ 8-16 gigs of RAM; I need a browser that can use more than 25% of my CPU)
- Plugin crash handling (nice error messages when a plugin crashes, plugin crashes don't affect the rest of the browser much, you can easily start the crashed plugin again without having to restart the browser)
- The extension system in Firefox is the best, but the speed and robustness of chrome won me over a couple years back. But now FF at least has the first bit of multithreading (runs plugins in separate processes), so it might be on the way back to my desk.

75
2/13/2012 18:47:12Windows7Google Chrome (Windows)It's faster than other browsers., It has better features.Developer Tools and JS console are easier to access and are integrated well.If I had to be honest, I think this answer is more about my assessment of Chrome relative to browsers a year ago. Chrome provided a much faster experience than Firefox, and offered integrated developer tools (rather than a plugin). However, since then the playing field has sort of leveled out in terms of both performance and developer tools. There are even some features in IE9 that I love (example: adjustable playback speeds for HTML5 video is awesome!!), which, outside of having to test all the browsers because I'm a developer, actually keep me using it as an end-user.

Incognito is also super helpful for development of web apps.
