Message 944227 - Posted: 31 Oct 2009, 17:38:27 UTC - in response to Message 944155.

New totals so far...
18 use Mozilla Firefox
5 use Internet Explorer
3 use Apple Safari
2 use Opera
1 uses Google Chrome
1 uses Konqueror

Looks like the overwhelming majority of SETI@home participants are Firefox users, I'm not suprised, as most people who tweak things don't use the "stock" option. :).

NOTE:For all Firefox Stumbleupon users with the SU plugin, 3.7a1pre now works with SU.

Okay I reported Camino and Netscape and they aren't in the table. Low %'s true, but they are fired up every day to look at different webmail accounts that almost never get an e-mail.

Hmm. Getting confusing now. I'll go over all the posts again and redo the table. It's very contentious when someone says "I use xxxx... but I also might use xxxx and sometimes xxxx." LOL. I'll repost in about 5 minutes.

OK. I went back over the results. I didn't include work related browsers, "I hardly ever use them browsers", or "But I also have xxxx & xxxx browsers"

20 use Mozilla Firefox
9 use Internet Explorer
3 use Apple Safari
2 use Opera
2 use Konqueror
1 uses Google Chrome
1 uses Netscape
1 uses Camino

Any more results? I've gotta' apply the nightly build now for 3.7 now...

Well, If there are no more votes, the total stands at:

20 use Mozilla Firefox
9 use Internet Explorer
3 use Apple Safari
2 use Opera
2 use Konqueror
1 uses Google Chrome
1 uses Netscape
1 uses Camino
1 uses Seamonkey

But if anyone else wants to share their browser choice out there, you're more than welcome!

I always use Firefox 3.5.x except for web sites that require IE. That's pretty much only Windows Update these days though, so... yeah! :-) But I usually use Autopatcher for Windows Updates anyway since I have several machines.

I am slowly moving away from Windows though as my day-to-day OS as well too so, soon, I may not even be able to run IE. :-)

Well that's 2 more votes. And probably the last...

22 use Mozilla Firefox
9 use Internet Explorer
3 use Apple Safari
2 use Opera
2 use Konqueror
1 uses Google Chrome
1 uses Netscape
1 uses Camino
1 uses Seamonkey

Overwhelmingly, I declare the choice browser of SETI@home to be Firefox!

Apache collects that stat, so if we asked Matt very nice, perhaps he'd let us know.

SwiftWeasel is listed as a fork-browser of Mozilla Firefox, plus it is also based on the source code of FF. So I added that vote as Firefox.

@Gary, good idea, I'll see what I can do on that matter!

At home, FF.

At work (where I am now), IE7. (Shhh, don't tell the boss I'm surfing instead of serving!)


We won't have to tell because the Proxy server log will in excruciating detail :-) Every year, 2-3 people are fired at my wife's firm for this transgression :-O

PS - I use IE7 ...

That's ok, I just remembered what the Governator of California wrote to the state legislature(It was rather nasty and It was only two words spread out over 7 sentences with the two words(4+3) letters as the start of each sentence(common expletive starting on the 6th alphabetical character), But It was for shock value I think) and then I looked at Your list and there was the phrase that I found.
