Opera v12 as my primary browser on my personal PCs. Waiting until they add sync back into the Blink-engine Opera in order to re-evaluate if I should use Opera or Firefox as my primary.

Firefox as my primary on my work PC.

Opera and Firefox are the only browsers I find suitable as primary browsers, others are missing key features, even with extensions. (In particular, mouse gestures and single-key tab switching shortcuts.)

Chrome for Google sites.

IE for Microsoft sites.

Chrome/Opera/Firefox I block cookies and selectively whitelist sites that I actually want storing cookies, so I use IE (set to clear cookies on exit) for sites that won't work without cookies allowed.

I use Google Chrome on my ancient 9-year laptop because it is one of the faster and more secure browsers for Windows XP. My laptop is only compatible with Windows XP. On my new liquid cooled desktop system, I will be using IE11 as I actually like it.

IE for me. Never really had any issue with it so I never felt any reason to use something else.

There's the occasional hiccup (one release in particular was buggy...), but i've been on it for almost a year maybe, and it's been great. I much prefer Nightly as you get so many improvements and features that regular firefox users have to wait months for.

One thing to note is that the current nightly branch is not compatible with the current version of LastPass so that's my only issue right now
