    Again...?

    Ok, I'll bite: Firefox.

    Love the add-ons (aka extensions) and my search engines, and it doesn't crash on one of my most frequently visited sites (like all webkit based browsers seems to do).

    Safari.

    has the "apple" feel to it, and is very very quick.

    may i also recommend you search the forums to research the myriad of threads on this topic :)

    Safai but Shiira is quite a close second. Once Shiira 2 becomes stable enough for everyday use (currently only a beta) then i will go back to using it. Love it, espically the Expose for tabs feature.

    Firefox 2.0 seems much better than Safari IMO

    OmniWeb or WebKit here... it's a tossup between shiny gui goodness, or a slightly newer rendering engine and better url completion (in my opinion).

    For right now i am with firefox. There are some weird things with it but a couple of the extensions i use are great. With Flashblock, Adblock and Foxmarks I like using firefox.

    I really deep down inside like camino and would use it every day if i could find some way to sync bookmarks with it. Foxmarks in firefox makes this so easy a child could do it. The reason i like this so much is it allows me to keep my bookmarks synced between my desktop and laptop. Greatest thing ever.

    If anyone knows of a way to do in camino waht foxmarks does in firefox please speak up.

    I think Firefox is better because it supports the new yahoo mail. It looks bad ass, and for some reason even though safari supports ajax it is still not supported by yahoo for its mail.

    We're probably over 30 threads on this but oh well.

    Firefox is my choice, especially with version 2. It's reduced my usage of WebKit browsers to almost nothing at all.

    Safari was my fav for a long time, but the last few updates have made it sluggish. I like Camino but it seems to have issues with certain sites and I get weird hangs.

    I'm now pretty much alternating between safari and firefox 2.0. I'm not having any issues w/firefox and its alot more snappy, plus it has a few nice add-ons I use-so i'm tending to lean more towards firefox.

    safari does everything I want from a browser, and typically does it well.

    I wonder how many people who share the gecko based browsers love in actually try to use them with a slow internet connection. ;)

    On the PC platform I use I.E. 7 , I would love to see a Trident based browser on the mac platform

    Opera all the way. Works faster and better for me than Safari.

    Well for me it depends where i am! i have all of them but i do prefer others to others. When i am at work i use, firefox, camino, iCab, seamonkey and netscape. When I am at home i like Safari. I HATE opera. Opera is a 'poor' web browser. But on the other hand it is very good at web page 'reading' i.e. its the best at reading websites but its layout is poor and its slow.

    I've been an OmniWeb user since back in the version 2 days.

    Hard to believe the first browser for Mac OS X didn't make the list... guess I won't vote. :(

    I see Camino as sort of the best of both worlds. You get the superior speed/rendering of Firefox and the MacOS feel of browsers like omniweb and safari. The only thing I think Safari does better is password management via keychain. Camino has been planning on switching to the Safari system but the patch keeps getting pushed back to later and later versions.
