During each set of years in the link below did/do you use the most popular browser at the time?
Chrome on my phone, Firefox on my Surface
No, I ditched IE for Firefox as soon. As it came out. I then stayed on Firefox a few months longer than I should have.
I never used Firefox. I kept with IE until around 2012 when I switched to Chrome.
I used IE back in early 2K... switched to FF when it gained popularity... Then joined Chrome like any other reasonable person. Of course I have a Mac so I also use Safari a lot because it is integrated for Mac.
