    I use both. IE(my favorite) and Chrome. I need Chrome when I'm using a High Contrast theme, to see web sites correctly, because IE is so interwoven into the Windows OS that even the bing homepage is just a solid color. Microsoft should consider making IE a separate program...I really would like to be able to use it in Ubuntu too.

    I use both as well. I use Chrome mostly though on my Windows 7 Laptop, because to me as a computer ages, the more the performance lags in Internet Explorer. I use IE on my 8.1 desktop, as it is too fast and too new for Chrome.
