Google Chrome, no problems yet.

Had a scare today when I installed a new anti-virus. The firewall blocked Everything!

Got it sorted though after 2 hours of trying out different things!

I'm using firefox 8.0 (x86 en-US). You'll get used to it, I love it now..just less problems running the site.
I've used Google Chrome and it works almost as well, I've just had a glitch or two so I switched, but Google Chrome does seem quite a bit faster.

I hate Microsoft! No, actually I don't. But I'll never use IE again. Unless it's when I'm setting up a new comp, in which case it's used once to D/L Firefox.

Gotta say that after the wonderful platform Win7 turned out to be, I cannot wait for Win8.

I dunno why your firefox is being glitchy. I'd try downloading another copy of it and see if that helps. Or try clearing your cache and cookies. Never had any probs with PSO using firefox.

As a proffessional IT employee I have to go with Google Chrome, the simplicity + the style is just far ahead of the others. Microsoft made a nice improvement with IE9, but its still far too complicated. Firefox is a bit meh always around the averages Safari is shit and Opera is only good for playing Tribalwars

Chrome is my go to browser. Simple and fast. I use firefox sometimes as well. I try to avoid using IE at all costs.

I use Chrome, and lately, I've been using Safari more often because of the bookmark and reading list syncing between my PC and my iPad

Glad you got Firefox fixed. For what it is worth - I throw my support behind Chrome. Simple, fast, and always works with PSO. If Firefox gives you problems, go for the Chrome.
