Last week we asked you to count how many browsers you have installed on your computer How Many Browsers Do You Have Installed On Your Computer [MakeUseOf Poll] How Many Browsers Do You Have Installed On Your Computer [MakeUseOf Poll] The days of having only one browser are mostly over. As the number of available options grow, so does the number of browsers we install and try. It’s time to count! How many browsers are... Read More . We received many votes and lots of comments specifying favorite browsers, and learned that there are many more browsers out there than we ever imagined!

Out of 1290 votes, 3.5% have 1 browser installed, 20% have 2 browsers installed, 42% have 3 browsers installed, 22% have4 browsers installed and 13.5% have 5 or more browsers installed. Not surprisingly, no one voted for 0 browsers, but we had to include in in the poll to be fair!

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

Out of the multiple comments, the main thing that came out is that most of the voters have Internet Explorer installed, but never use it. Its name still popped up quite a lot in the comments, which might mean something for Microsoft’s strategy.


This week’s poll question is: Instagram On Android – Good Or Bad?


As most of you probably know, Instagram was finally launched on Android this week. The app, which was iOS-only for almost a year and a half, is a highly popular photo-sharing platform, and its launch on Android has been highly anticipated. Following the launch, many iOS users voiced their concerns about their closed community being invaded by Android users. Android users, of course, will hear nothing of it, in what is turning out to be one of the funniest iOS-Android clashes in history. Where do you stand?

Share in the comments why you think Instagram should or shouldn’t be available for other platforms. If you’ve been waiting for Instagram on a different OS to no avail, let your voice be heard as well!

    Im an instagram for android user and my photos are just as cliched and faux-vintage as any iphone person's. Is this really a big deal? I mean, its instagram.

    I think those Team iPhone people who are bashing Android are just uninformed teenagers.

    I played with instagram for a while and all I have to say is that it's just an overrated app. Being on ICS I was hoping for more Holo integration. I expect new apps to use the new design guidelines and instagram failed. It has too much iOS in it. It doesn't even have swipe to see next picture, you have to touch the pic see it, then press back and touch the next pic so on so on. It feels like it was meant to be used as a desktop app.

    In ICS there are sweet swipe gestures to move from tab to tab, and the experience is way smoother and easier for hands. Instagram doesn't take advantage of these and feels painfully horrible to use.

    The community part of it has potential, I know that if I ignore most pics on the popular page, which most are popular teenagers taking pictures in front of a mirror I could find good phone photographers and have a great time following them.

    I thought this was a silly question, but apparently a vocal contingent of iPhone users are up in arms about this.

    It just goes to show that Apple products are a mark of class and consciously worn as such by some people. Use Android, PC, or whatever that's not Apple -- you're lower class.

    Maybe this is part of why I'm so instinctively turned off by Apple products. Hmm.

      I was surprised too, but yes, people were really angry about this thing. So far the majority of our readers either don't agree or don't care, though. :)
