Another 12% told us they haven’t made a resolution, and 7% chose something else.

It has been 2.5 years since we last asked you this question, and its high time to see what has changed in the browser scene. In October of 2010, Firefox won the nod for best browser by a small margin, and IE and Safari trailed the group with almost no votes to their names. How do things look in 2013? Is Firefox still your favorite browser? Are smaller browsers eating away at the big names’ leads? Did IE and Safari manage to gain some popularity? It’s time to tell us which browser is the BEST!

Don’t forget to explain your vote in the comments, and tell us what makes your favorite browser the best. What do you think has changed since 2010 in the browser scene?
