I would never use MSIE for browsing (well, I don't use Windows anyway...).
I would never use google tools of any stripe and chrome, from my reading of threat sites, has major holes that are patched more often than most other software. Add to that the android apps store fiasco where G has so many infected apps - if chrome add-ons are anything like that it's lethal.
I have used firefox since it first emerged - prior to that, netscape. I very occasionaly use an alternative linux browser for a test but that's it.
I have a stable of approx 10 add-ons for firefox, including the indispenable NoScript, FlashBlock and TabMixPlus; as a web site developer I also have the web developer tools.
Takes me about half an hour every couple of months, if that, to maintain them.
