I also use Opera
IE, 7 I think Because I'm begrudged to spend the £650 just to upgrade my screenreader to be able to have something compabitle with the more recent versions,
I naively thought that screenreaders would come for free these days. 'Kin well ought to!
They do... or can... Only they're fairly basic ones... Probably, though, good enough for the vast vast majority of blind/partially sighted computer users; Doing E-mail, word processing, online shopping, etc., etc., There isn't as far as I know anything other than the one I use, which would work with my music recording software... And, if there is somethign that would work, with say a differnt make of recording software I'd have to spend close on the price of a new screenreader/upgrade anyhow, in order to buy any decent new recording software package, plus re-learn the last several years getting to grips with the recording software I currently use
The one I use is probably the best, for my purposes, but sadly it is both the most expensive, and the company with the most expensive and uncompetitive view on upgrade pricing Mind, I've bene lucky so far, having got all my previous versions of it paid for either by the Education department (when a student), or via the DWP (when in work)... amd I've been very 'environmental' in recycling my current version of it, by running it well past its point of being upgraded, and into its realm of not really being supported, or supporting more recent web technologies and opperating systems (I couldn't, for example, upgrade (downgrade?), to Vista, or win 7, without first upgrading my version of the software)...
Talking of out of date software... can you actually still get netscape?
You can still get Netscape - but only from the "Netscape Archives". Totally unsupported - & I discovered (while still using Netscape 8, I think it was) that some of the goodies like Flash, etc kill it, so I'm not sure it's really worth trying.
In answer to the OP - Firefox on my Windows 'puter, unless my wife let's me use her Macbook which would be Safari.
IE6 at work (but read only, can't log in)
Firefox, occasionally Chrome at home
Safari, version 5.0.6 & that's it for the immediate future.
Chrome from home, safari on iPad, IE at work (not sure what version)
OK, I've done an approximate tally of the postings above:
Internet Explorer 14
So it's more or less an equal split between Firefox, Chrome, IE and Other.
Thank you all for your assistance.
Well, another for Firefox, but mine is allergic to flash. The whole thing dies when it tries to load a video.
When that happens, I end up using IE
Personally I use Firefox for my Gnomon account and Internet Explorer for the h2g2 Guide Editors account. It helps to have a different look to the screen, which reminds me which account I'm using.
Persephone- I have the opposite allergy, my IE seems Allergic to Flash, and maybe also bits of Java on a page, so I switch to Firefox when needing to get to such a page... Flash is an abomination...
If I'm not too late.
Firefox on desktops and Safari on my iphone.
I don't know if you have what you need, but I use Chrome
The differences between the different versions of IE are much greater than for many other browsers. IE6 is horrible, IE7 is better, IE8 is almost workable, and IE9 actually deserves to be called a browser.
If you're having difficulty working out what browser you're using, go to http://useragentstring.com.
(I'm currently in Chrome, which claims, inaccurately, to be a Mozilla browser, and also claims, inaccurately, to be Safari. This is for historical reasons.)
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.0) AppleWebKit/535.19 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/18.0.1025.162 Safari/535.19

We do IE on the PC and Firefox on the laptop - same network at home.
Opera, Chrome, Firefox and IE (at work).
(The price of that screenreader's frightening, 2legs. You could buy three decent PCs for that amount! )
More... the full price to buy it, (not the upgrade reduced price), is, I think, from memory, about £1000 Captive market, they can rip us off as much as they like... I could buy a new PC for recording on and with a soundcard for that...
Firefox at home, IE at work.
