    Windows 8.1


    I tend to use chrome across my various devices, mainly because it is Google and interfaces and synchronizes with my Google account easier than the others.

    So if I do a Google search on the laptop, that same search is in my search history on my android smart phone.

    If I used a Windows phone I might use Microsoft IE.

    I use Internet Exlplorer 11 - on my pc's it's much faster than Chrome. I keep Chrome as a backup. Have dropped Firefox completely.

    Mainly use IE now, used to be a big Chrome user (have Android phone & tablet)

    Not a fan of recent changes in Chrome, so decided to try IE when I got Windows 8, and I quite like it now

    Firefox for me but that's mainly due to it being the most compatible with all our forums

    If you also have a Surface rt it may be better to stick with IE as your bookmarks and tabs are in sync with desktop. But then again I use Chrome on desktop as I work on a mac also. Just wish Chrome was available for Surface rt.

    My main browser is Firefox. My second browser is Chrome. However, when I'm on my PC with a touchscreen, I have to use IE because the other browsers aren't very good with touch. Of the next-gen browsers (browsers that are Metro), I'm really liking the new Metro Firefox (Aurora). Still doesn't have the touch enabled yet but it combines the best of Metro with a more traditional interface. I'll probably switch to that new once once it's a public release rather than an experimental release. And if it still doesn't have proper touch at that time, I'll keep using IE for touch.

    Firefox here since version 1.0, tried using the others but they all felt "off" for me.

    Chrome (or Chromium) is fine but Waterfox and Opera (64bit) are good too.

    IE11 is gaining ground, it plays Netflix without stupid silverlight which is a big plus, I'm mainly using it now on my HTPC.
