The infographic linked out to in last week’s post from Addthis.com, showed Chrome overtaking Firefox in the volume of shares in Nov. 2011.
This reminded me of a question I’d been pondering earlier in the year and I picked up a second reminder today with Mashable‘s story regarding browser sharing and Chrome’s growth over 2011.
I’ve embedded the graphs from the two sources mentioned at the end of this post and my question to you is “What browser or browsers do you use?”. I spotted a habit forming in the summer of 2011 – during a day I would use three browsers; Chrome, Firefox and IE, each for a different on-line task.
Chrome is used for the majority of my tasks, say about 50% which includes updating Web Analytics World, marketing activities and some Google work. The next 40% of on-line tasks including the remaining Google and marketing tasks, as well as some forum work is actioned through Firefox and IE is kept for Facebook and checking single links.
The main reason for me is laziness and a dislike of logging out/in of different accounts on the same applications, although I have found that some applications work better on different browsers (it may just by my PC but I’m sure IE slows my google searches and applications).
So I’m very interested about what you use, are you a one browser user or do you chop and change browsers depending on your task/application?
