Use chrome on my laptop, and like that it syncs through between Mac and Windows, which is helpful!

Let's be real - the only reason most people use Internet Explorer/Microsoft Edge is to download Google Chrome :lol:

Microsoft edge is a pretty big improvement on internet explorer but it's still not as good as chrome.

I use Safari - I didn't really have a choice as it came with my Mac, but I previously used Internet Explorer and Google Chrome and I find it to be less laggy and generally more capable of doing what I want it to than both, and also I much prefer the look and layout of Safari from a cosmetic point of view.

If you come back, I can give you a seat when we have one free, as long as you maintain a 100% voting record. You don't even get a seat by being in the Tories.

Maybe I'll consider in the future but at the moment I'm very busy so I wont make a good MP at the moment

I used to be a very Google-orientated person but since I got my MacBook Pro a couple of Xmas's ago, I can safely say that Safari is a better browser, it has a much lower CPU usage and is just generally less-buggy and more useful than Chrome. Particularly because of the Chrome ecosystem on MacOS where it forces you to download strange app folders and f***s with your directories. For the people that voted Chrome, have you ever used Safari properly? For those who voted Edge: :rip:

I used to use Chrome up until September 2015. On September 1st, I switched to SlimJet (based on Chromium) after Google dropped NPAPI plugin support, which is what Java, Silverlight and Google Hangouts (amongst others) uses.

I do use Chrome and Firefox as secondary browsers, though.

Why would people use Safari on Windows? And why are you so pretentious to say people don't use a browser "properly"?
