I use Firefox 4 Beta on both my Macbook Pro on OS X and in bootcamp. Other than that I really don't use beta browsers and on OS X Firefox is far from my default browser, however I use it all the time when I am using windows 7 and don't feel like restarting my computer. Do you use a beta browser and if so which one.

I used Firefox 4 Beta but found it way too slow for me, being used to Google Chrome. Although it was a nice browser for only the beta stage.

What OS did you test it on.

I am currently using the Internet Explorer 9 Beta, Chrome 9 Beta and RockMelt Beta. The one that I use the most is Chrome 9, however there are some bugs in it like I cannot type in the comment area of this site. I have to type my comment in the answer portion or in Microsoft Word and then copy and paste it. But other than that I have had no problems.

I forgot I have IE beta in Win 7 also but it has issues with comment system on this site and is not very fast...

I will have to try the IE9 Beta and see about the comments. I don't know why it happens.

I don't know either, at first you think it will work then it glitches up.

I tend to avoid Betas, for internet browsers at least. Last time I tried to use one, it really messed with my computer, and I had to get it reformatted. So I just stick to my safer, more reliable browsers, at least for now.

I'm using Chrome v9.0 beta. I love Chrome because it's so fast and clean.
