Hi, I personally like firefox the best.

firefox. I'd like to try chrome more seriously, but without NoScript, it isn't for me.

I am using Firefox Aurora, fast and less memory consumption and always up-to-date.

I like Seamonkey! Kinda like a Thunderbird/Firefox hybrid, only much lighter and faster than Opera. And a lot lighter and faster than Firefox.

I like Midori too, when it works, but it still crashes alot on my 'puter.

Chromium is my favorite, but I use Opera and Firefox for a few sites.

Are you trying to install in Ubuntu? If yes, then open a terminal and run the following command by copying and pasting,
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:midori/ppa && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install midori

Edit: For Windows, use at your own risk. http://midori.en.softonic.com/

Firefox is the best if you actually want to get something done.
If you want to goof around and play angry birds, then use chrome/ium!
The last two are fast, though.

For Ubuntu, it is in the Ubuntu Software Center, Synaptic Package Manager or vie terminal
sudo apt-get install chromium-browser for Windows use Google Chrome.

Vanilla Firefox

It's good enough without those extensions, which I never bother to install.

same base, chrome is what chromium becomes after google puts their extra bits on it. Google chrome uses it's own tweaked java and flash bits.

I use chromium, my GF uses chrome. As far as end users go as i've been comparing them there's not much difference.

Great choice of browser though, either one. Very fast and efficient.

I use Firefox 3.6

It's secure, fast and stable (I don't really a difference between this and 4/5, speed or stability wise). I see no reason for updating unless the devs who put out LTS updates see fit.

I'm all about FF for reliability, openness, security. I'm sold.

*Though it's incidental (I have a proxy switching button that provides similar functionality in Chormium), I also really appreciate having access to TORButton... and its associated menus/options.

Opera is my fav. browser on Ubuntu and Firefox is my backup just-in-case... :)

Google chrome uses it's own tweaked java and flash bits.


Actually it has a customized Adobe Flash Player and a simple PDF viewer plugin (in Linux, it cannot use the Adobe PDF plugin).

On topic, my browser of choice is Opera (i use opera-next, the dev version of it because i am a bit of masochist...).

It is very fast and stable + it has a truckload of included options (notes, sync, integrated web server, on-demand plugin loading etc) including a mail client. And still manages to be one of the fastest. It also has a clean and polished appeareance.

BTW Seamonkey is not faster than Opera - i used it before Opera and it is faster than Firefox and more stable, but certainly not as fast as Opera 10.5/11.5/12.
