[MakeUseOf Poll] Which New Web Browser Could Sway You From Firefox/Chrome? [MakeUseOf Poll] This week we’re asking for your opinion on which of the new, upcoming browsers might finally sway you (or has already swayed you) from Firefox and Chrome. Join the poll and let us know about... Read More . It looks like if anyone’s leaving Firefox and Chrome it’s because they’re going to Opera or Chromium.

From the 660 votes collected, we had the following breakdown: 32% would move to Opera 11; 24% would never consider leaving Firefox/Chrome; 20% would move to Chromium; 10% would head to Internet Explorer 9; 7% would take up RockMelt 2; SRWare Iron gained 5% of the voters; 2% would go to Wyzo; 2% would leave for Maxathon 3.0; and 1 person would go to something else entirely.

Full results and this week’s poll after the jump.

Opera 11 and Chromium are the hottest new browsers out!

This week’s poll question is: How Much Hard Drive Space Do You Have?


We all seem to have a couple of computers around the house: maybe a laptop, a desktop and a server. Maybe more. But what’s your total hard drive space in those machines?

If you use a very small amount of hard drive space, or a very large amount, we’d love to hear why! Let us know in the comments!

    Adding up 8 machines with varying internal HDDs and 8 external HDDs of varying sizes, I have somewhere around 14-15 TB.

    1.5TB in this computer

    2TB in server

    ~6TB total available space. About 2TB is reserved for weekly disk images of a couple computers
    1-2TB is disk images (digitalized all those old game CDs) and TV shows (2-4GB per 1hr from Media Center)

    Sitting at around 30TB. Then again, I'm a professional video editor and RED Digital Cinema RAW files are not small (a typical long day of shooting with two cameras can yield upwards of a TB of data for a single day depending on shooting style).

    I use a regular 500GB hard drive and an external hard drive (for backup) of the same size. Most of my use is purely functional. Nothing fancy, really.

      The three is just a fence post. Most people would have a smidgeon under or over. Surely you don't have exactly 3 TB? :)

    I have (4) 1.5TB Drives configured in two mirrors of 1.5TB each and my OS is on a 1TB drive.  I still need more but waiting to make some more money to fund this storage upgrade.

    Now I have 160 GB Laptop Hard Disk. But I hope to buy 1 TB because, I need to install Windows 7 and Ubuntu, plus space for Data. And I think HDD and Flash Drives are portable, secure, speedy, durable, spacy, good life span and echo friendly more than Optical Disks. Thank You.

    I've just got a 320GB laptop atm, which I'm currently only using half of, but I'll be setting up a local server for backups etc. soon so that'll probably have 1-2TB

    My problem is that while I've got a ton of space, it's scattered hither and thither. I really need to get a NAS...

    I've got a little more than 4 TB spread across 5 machines.  The bulk of that is in my WHS (1.2 TB) and in a dev/test machine (2x640G).

    Adding up external storage - via flash drives & external HDD's - puts me at 5GB>.  However, I also subscribe to a 100GB seedbox, which is nearly half full, as well.

    You should have given a few more options... more than 5 is a little low for my storage capacity =)

    Current rough estimate for me would be about 17 TB

      I'm not sure there'd be too many people who would match you there... :)

        I dunno, it is possible. I have all of my movies and TV shows ripped to a server so that I can watch them on all the TVs in the house (using hacked AppleTVs). There has to be others out there with a poopload of storage.
