We often get asked this question. There are so many issues from flash, java, compatibility and other problems to make choosing the right browser for you a tough question. Everyone also has the one that they are most comfortable using, or the one they like the best. Even here in the department we are divided on the issue of which browser to use. Some of us use Firefox, some Chrome, most of us try not to use Safari. To try and answer the question here is a video that might help you, or just muddy the water more.
