So, I personally own a 2011 iMac with a quad core i5 and 4GB of ram, OS X Mountain Lion, blah blah blah. ( I use Windows as my mobile os however)
I went to a friend's house, and while I personally use Firefox or Chrome when I use Windows PC's because I have the "IE sucks on desktop" in my head, I tried IE10.
And I was pissed off. Why? Because IE10 was faster, lighter, and used much less memory on a laptop that was years older than my Mac running Safari or Chrome. IE10 is the best browser out there. It's design is clean, modern, it's lightweight, and it's super fast. I think my next mac will be a PC just for IE10. It's amazing.

I use Firefox. It works perfectly and has all the plugins I need. Wouldn't even think of trying out IE just for kicks.
I think that is the main problem of IE right now, everybody has already switched to an alternative and is happy.

I use IE10 rarely, but I prefer Firefox. My reasons for preferring Firefox are: availability of extensions/plugins, cross-platform (I run Linux too, and I like using the same browser in Linux and in Windows).

I enjoy using ie10 :) I have stuck with IE since ie6 and I have watched it grow and sure peeps still give me a hard time about using IE but I say well its not the same as it was before. and if I had to chose and alternative it would be Firefox just because I prefer the looks over chrome :P

But still, Google has its fingers in Firefox financially: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Firefox#Google

Also, they do for search marketshare, so google is the default browser in Firefox. Personally, this doesn't bother me that much. I like Mozilla. I'd actually prefer Firefox OS be the one in Android's current market position over Google's Android Trojan horse.

Personal opinion, but on my PC (Windows 8), FF felt kind of slow on the bloated side compared to IE10. Either FF with or without Adblock Plus (no other plugins), compared to IE10 with a handful of add-ons it just feels... slow. I do still use FF for those sites that don't render properly in IE10, but I still greatly prefer IE. Again, only my opinion.

I use IE 10 but on my W7 it seems to lock up at times. FF works smooth as well as Chrome. I just migrated from Chrome a few weeks ago and love FF again. I wish my IE would act right.Red Prostitue 920
