Chrome, I used to use IE and for some reason didn't warm to Firefox. Chrome seems great to me.

Re: A heartfelt thanks

I am a grizzled old ex-games industry bod and despite that I am 100% +1 supporting this post.

Well done, don't care if I don't get one of the first 1000, 10,000 or 1,000,000.

WELL DONE!
