  • Iam very glad that Pakistani’s are leaving IE now.However some people are still using IE because its installed default in Windows.I use Firefox it is great and browsing speed is great compared to others.

  • Pro Desi

    I dont understand why people are not using chrome…its the best browser guys!

  • Muzzammil Hussain

    As expected, IE is falling and Firefox is gaining rise.Chrome is good then IE but still not toughing the high standards of Firefox.

  • Muhammad Zohair Chohan

    According to my experience, mostly in offices, schools, colleges, and universities people use Internet Explorer as there are shared computers and users have not much access to install new software, others using IE at Home etc are just newbies so they don’t know how harmful IE can be. But if we do a poll amongst geeks in Pakistan, Firefox will be on TOP!

  • rafay

    No doubt chrome is good but firefox has got addons which gives it a edge over chrome.
    I will personally use Chrome if they provide script block cz i hate those flash ads.

  • eAhmad

    Did you people ever tried Opera? It is the best browser and rich in factures.. Like Turbo (enhances browsing speed), Opera Link (Bookmark synchronization even between Mobile and PC), Speed Dials.. Etc..

    But one thing I miss in Opera is Private Browsing.

    Firefox add-ons feature is matchless.

    By the way IE 8 is a solid browser with same feature as Firefox 3.6.

  • eAhmad

    Sorry I mean to say “Rich In Features”.

    Amir how can I edit the comments?

  • I hate IE. Shifted to google chrome from Firefox as chrome is speedy and graphically appealing, so it seems to user friendly too.

    • haider

      Google chrome is the best.

  • Fakhre Alam

    I’m using window’s 7’s IE. Working better. Chrome is also better

  • Valentine Aaqil Mahmood

    Google Chrome is best in Windows and Linux

    And Opera is best for slower computers and slow internet

  • A.Basit

    chrome is light and nice … very easy to use ..
    people like me want to keep concentrate on main objective of software not just lost in many features

    i like simplicity

  • Mozilla Firfox Rocks

  • Adnan

    Chorome is chill.

  • Arsalan

    Chrome !!! FTW !! yayy

  • Fzl

    Chrome is a fast browser ever… compiled with simple n comprehensive features… it is next giant in browsers list. IE cant stay anymore coz its fuzool menues n buttons.

    Firefox will be threatened by chrome. Firefox is also better than IE. i prefer it at home.
