What do you guys think is the best browser out there? I like Internet Explorer 9 myself.

IE 9 is certainly a very good browser.  It loads very quickly and has nice privacy and security features.  I use it plus Firefox 6 (my main browser) and Google Chrome.  Firefox has a huge selection of addons/plugins that really sets it apart.  My favorite Firefox feature has to be the Awesome Bar.  It's really accurate in predicting which page I went to go to, much more so than Chrome.  I just type a few letters and bam it selects the correct URL and I hit the ENTER key and there I go.

Chrome is very fast and I like how it takes advantage of multiple CPUs better.  You do have to keep in mind that data you enter in the Chrome URL bar and search box are information collected by Google.  Also it will monitor your internet usage such has how long you spend on a website, etc.  You can find out more here:

For me, there isn't really a best browser- if Firefox is able to reach Chrome speeds and mange system memory better I'd pick it hands down as the best.
