I have always used IE, and still do. I have looked at Firefox and Chrome, but cannot see what is wrong with IE11.

I would be interested to know the advantages of the alternatives as experienced by Forum members.

I quite like IE11. I don't think that there is anything really wrong with it. Chrome may be slightly faster at loading webpages.

I keep IE11, Chrome and Firefox on my desktop and switch between them as the mood takes me.

Always use IE but have Firefox as stand-by.

I used to use IE11 and still do sometimes but due to the amount of add I change to Firefox as it had a free add blocker.

Since Opera started using the Chromium engine, instead of Opera Software's own Pronto engine, thus improving website compatibility, IE is used by me only very rarely.

I meant to add: I find that IE is rather poor, Microsoft should do better.

"I meant to add: I find that IE is rather poor, Microsoft should do better."

As far as I can tell, I have had no problems with IE 11, so not sure what exactly is "rather poor"

I note the responses, and do try Chrome occasionally, but as I seem to have no problems associated with IE, I shall continue with it whilst trying the others from time to time. Thanks for all the responses.
