    I'm going to go with Chrome. It's fast, reliable, and very customizable.
    What do you use?

    Firefox 4 for me. That is because I have used it for awhile now and it was a better alternative to IE.

    I use both Chrome more than Firefox... with version 4, it caused massive memory consumption on my pc, but testing the beta 5 it seems they've fixed the problem and it's much faster than before. I still use the both of them because although I like Chrome more, there are some sites that don't work correctly with it.

    I've also had some media player compatibility problems with Firefox 4.

    ANYTHING is better than IE...

    For me its 97% Chrome, Safari like 3%
    Nothing beats out Chrome. I was even checking out this speed test thing awhile back and Chrome dominated across the board.

    I have it installed, just only used it a few times. Stuck with Firefox because it's what I've used for awhile now.

    Then do what Jrod said, and use it for two weeks. You'll definitely see a difference
    Don't forget to install the BBOS Chrome app

    Getting in on this late, but my two cents on the issue. I prefer Chrome. Fast and easy to use. I never did get into using Firefox. Now with Firefox 4 out, we have issues with it working with the majority of web sites we use at work.

    I actually also like IE9. Completely rebuilt the HTML engine. I like the design and it too is fast. Again, I have to use IE9 for various sites at work where Firefox or Chrome will not work.

    At work, I strictly use IE9, but at home it is a combination of IE9 and Chrome. Using Chrome with anything Google web site is of course awesome. I use the Google Reader web site and Chrome works best with it as you imagine.

    Mac? Yeah, on a Mac I am definitely a Firefox guy. Granted I do not use a Mac too often.

    Firefox 6 beta? I had not heard that yet.

    Search Firefox Aurora. It's really similar to Firefox 4, I just didn't see any changes

    I'm gonna throw Opera in the ring . I get alot of error messages and freezing from chrome and don't really care for firefox. Opera has some really cool features like a sync capability between your BB and PC with opera also installed on on your BB. There is even a feature called Turbo that helps speed up slower connections. I have tried all three and have stuck with Opera.
