In my recent experience, I have fooled around with Chrome a lot, and IE a bit.
I am sorry. IE9 is a clunky mess, probably made sleeker if I want to do a lot of drilling to change settings, which I do not.
Chrome- I ran it as a default on six machines. There were things there that were messy, especially in how it handled my bookmarks, opening a bookmark in a folder. Painful.
For me, there is nothing better than the Firefox/SeaMonkey tandem. I use both, I actually prefer SeaMonkey because of its handling of the images I need to copy and paste into blog posts. For that it is much slicker than Firefox. I have one problem, seemingly insoluble, with SeaMonkey only on one machine and only on one site, Google Reader. No mater what I try it will not save those passwords. Just that one machine and just that one site.
But on all other machines, I open SeaMonkey to work.
Microsoft should go into the Oil and Gas business. They love drilling. I hate drilling.
