    IE 10 with Fanboy tracking protection list + smartscreen filter = very safe and fast browsing experience. Tried firefox, but its performace in cold startup is slow (4 - 5 seconds with Adblock plus) unlike IE 10 Desktop mode where it launches in less than 1/2 second after cold boot. Google Chrome has their irritating googleupdater so I won't ever install it. I tried Chromium (a.k.a. alpha version of Chrome), but it's too unstable although on par with IE 10 when working properly.

    Chrome. Only dislike one thing about it. Can't reload all tabs at once.

    I use chrome for cross platform support, synced bookmarks on every computer that I use. And the sync also handles my add-ons, so they auto install on whatever compute that I have synced.

    IE or FireFox, don't use Chrome too much spyware in it, wish it didn't log everything you do, UGH!
