    I usually sign in here first from my email, thread notices and then use a link from here to go to Mturk.
    Anything I have open appears at the bottom of the page along the little bar that has the time and date. When I need to flip between them, I just click on what I need. When I actually need to open a different browser, I hit the start icon (bottom left corner of screen, where you shut down, restart, hibernate, etc. , and select what I need from there.

    Firefox for mechanical turk stuff, but Opera for personal browsing.

    I've always been partial to Firefox, but recently Chrome has been my browser of choice because not only is is faster but it's catching up in addons and extensions. IE has always left a bad taste in my mouth ever since my web design days, and their inability to support the industry standards. They have gotten a lot better over the years though.

    FF has always been my favorite but when I first started I had a lot of trouble with it submitting any with the gray button inside the frame.
    I switched to IE and... got a whole set of annoyances.
    Using Chrome, I think I have only had problems with one HIT, it was a transcription that wouldn't load the audio.
    So now, I have a new computer and I have IE set to my dashboard and use Chrome for everything else.

    I'm on team Chrome. It is definitely faster for me and I have less issues with it.

    I've found Chrome to be noticeably faster than Firefox, so it's the browser I use.

    I use Firefox but it has gotten silly with the updates recently. I haven't used Chrome in a long time. At that time it was a very bare bones browser and I quit using it after about 20 minutes. Apparently, it has improved since then. I don't like change, though, so I haven't tried it out again.

    IE is terrible because it is made by the Evil Deathstar corporation called Microsoft. Only fans of Darth Vader use IE. (I hope my Star Wars analogies fit because I haven't seen a Star Wars movie since the first one came out in 1977. I liked Smokey and the Bandit WAY better, but I digress. IE sucks. Erase it from your hard drive and never look back.)

    I stopped using Firefox after I got frustrated with all the update popups every single time I opened it. I just want to Google something! Chrome is really nice, but I'm tempted to go back to Safari, the new version is super cool and integrates well with iOS.

    I was a big FireFox fan for years, but I finally gave Chrome a try this year. I LOVE it... so fast and elegant. I don't even have FF on my new computer, although I guess I should install for those penny hits with the radio buttons.
