The poll is at the top of the page ... where it says

You have to vote in the poll, a reply is not counted.

I see where it says this, but there is nothing to click on to allow me to vote. I've looked at this in two browsers; no difference. Am I thick or something? I never had this problem in past polls on the site.

I voted Firefox, as it is definitely the most widely-supported, FLOSS browser. Chrome/Chromium is nice, but it still doesn't play well with some things.

About three years ago, I switched to Chrome/Chromium because I felt Firefox was becoming a bloated beast. As of late, however, Firefox really seems to have cleaned up its act.

The Vote Now button is in the lower left, under the poll options.

I do use Firefox most of the time but also depends on what computer im using i prefer Midori or Dillo.
I did vote for Dillo cos it is a great browser for it very small size and memory footprint also it is super fast, and deserve more than some attention.

Regards

Gotta go with Firefox. What Mozilla continues to contribute to opensource is unmatched IMHO.

Used to use Ff all the time. Tried Chrome and liked it but it didn't have Print Preview which is important for me (and anyone who tries not to waste paper). Then Chrome came out with a nice Print Preview which allows me to print without the headers and footers. This is a feature Ff (as far as I can tell) hasn't incorporated. So for now, Chrome's my fave.

Well I commented a few post back... But I think no one used, or a few people.

I'm sorry, jeremy, but I see no poll options on the page; nothing in the lower left I can click on. This is very frustrating.

You already voted in this poll. Once you vote, you will not see the button and cannot vote again.
