Firefox 1680x1050 on an old Nforce2/Barton 2500 HTPC. The newest release of Firefox sped things up as I was about to stop using this computer for browsing but all OK now.
For my mom's 91st birthday I bought a new laptop and installed Safari. Safari's Top Sites feature made it easy for her to find her favorite sites.

I checked Opera because that's what I'm using at this moment. I usually have IE, Firefox, Safari and Opera simultaneously running. I'm using (on this PC) a 24" 16:9 monitor set at 1920 by 1200. My other monitor/PC is a 21" 4:3 monitor set at 1280 by 1024. My laptop is set at 1024 by 768. It's old and due for replacement.
I saw someone here was using Chrome. I wanted to try it myslef. However, Google wants to know too much about me and my PC for me to even download it.

I use Chrome for my viewing lately. It's just so lightweight, albeit a little buggy. But I still like it.

My desktop is at 1920x1080 and my laptop is 1366 x 768.

It always amazes me just how many still use Idiot Exploiter. Bloated, virus prone, forced upon you from a corporation who still wants to control the Internet. :rant:

I have used Opera from around V3 back in 2000 after switching from Netscape. It's the only browser (that I know of) that has a built in e-mail client.
Why run two related programs when one doe
s both. I don't need all that those stand alone e-mail clients offer, M2 works fine. The only real downside is all mail has to reside in the 'Received' folder, it can be copied, but it can't be moved out of that folder.

Also they way it handles bookmarks is superior to Firefox with their never ending vertical column that takes forever to scroll through. Opera will open another page if all the entries won't fit in one column. No endless scrolling.

My screen is 1600x1200 on a 24" Sammy S-PVA panel.

Ive been using Chrome for some time now, and really like it. It runs at 1280x1024 on my 19" LCD, though I could run it at 1920x1080 on the main display without problems.
The desktop upstairs runs it at 1680x1050
