From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

Web browser

"A web browser or Internet browser is a software application for retrieving, presenting, and traversing information resources on the World Wide Web. An information resource is identified by a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) and may be a web page, image, video, or other piece of content. Hyperlinks present in resources enable users to easily navigate their browsers to related resources."

Once again, the overwhelming choice for DSLR members is Mozilla Firefox, garnering 41% of the total votes cast. During the poll period, Version 3.6 was the current release. Since then, Mozilla has released Version 4 to the public. Version 4 features can be seen by visiting this link - Meet Mozilla Firefox

Following a distant second with 14% of the total votes cast was the production release of Internet Explorer 8, the only version from Microsoft that can still be used on the aged Windows XP operating system; followed by Google Chrome 9 (12%) and Opera 11 (8%).

One notable change in voting that was evident this year were the amount of votes cast for "Other" (9%), which included beta release versions of all of the popular browsers (Firefox, Internet Explorer and Chrome). This is indicative of a strong technical community willing to test and (hopefully) assist the manufacturers in the debugging of new products. One other important note -- most respondents stated their use of multiple browsers.
