    The browser that I use the most often (question 11) is actually Google chrome, this was just not listed as an option so I chose the one I use second most. 
    My internet at home is VERY slow, it's a wireless internet but through a cell phone connection and is about as slow as dial up (0.05mbps sometimes)...hopefully I will be able to download information and files to my computer prior to coming home for the day (aka via use of school internet)
