Chrome usually. For work, IE and Firefox.
To be fair he's really using a Compaq 486 with Windows 3.1 so he pretty much has to use Netscape Navigator

It's a folding beast though!

Firefox as the main, got used to no script years ago and just like how I can select what to allow on every web page. I also use chrome as a secondary like its built in translation abilities. IE I use to test if something is not working in Firefox or want to see the page with full ads.
