Poll Revisited: Given a fresh choice, which Web browser would you choose?

Which web browser do you use most often? Does your business have an official supported web browser?

In 2012, TechRepublic asked a very simple question: Given a fresh choice, which Web browser would you choose? The results showed that Firefox was the most used web browser, but it is now a year later and I wonder if this result still holds true.

Personally, I have stopped using Firefox for almost everything (some internal productivity apps work better with Firefox) and have been using Chrome. I tried using Safari a few times and an Apple Air test machine, but did not like it at all. Again, Chrome was the browser of choice.

So, I'm wondering if Chrome has gained a larger market share at the expense of Firefox in the past year. Or perhaps Opera is now used by a larger percentage of TechRepublic members. Take the poll and let us know why you use the browser you use. I'm also curious if the browser you choose to use personally is the same browser officially supported by your business organization?
