Wow... I had not realised how small it was:
http://gs.statcounter.com/browser-market-share  approx 7% there. but still 14% of desktops.

chrome is bigger than I expected.


no one else use it here?

I still use it regularly. Probably need to switch to Chrome.

I was surprised to see how few use MS browsers.

Still using it, could have done with a few of the plugins that were sacrificed but switching to Chrome would be a bigger pain in the arse.

I use it, but not as the primary.

It is nice though. But as mentioned, the browser wars are over, and Google won.

But it wasn't *that* long ago that we declared the browser wars over and MS had won. So who knows.

I just updated from 52 and it is noticeably faster.  Running on Linux.

Use it daily everywhere except mobile. Afraid to update, seems a lot of plugins will not be compatible? Or maybe more are updated now.

Thinking about switching to Opera which is basically reskinned chrome that doesn't phone home to G.

I'm on Firefox 57. It still leaks memory, but does it on multiple threads instead of just the one. It is very fast though.

The're an add-on called Foxified which apparently allows the running of Chrome and Opera plugins. I haven't tried it yet. I'd be interested in your feedback if you do.

Haven't tried it yet, but I recently came across a blog post where someone did it with Dreditor (Drupal Editor) and said it just worked straight away. He just saved the Foxified version and released it as a Firefox plugin with (as I understood it from his blog post), no changes.
