    I know, i knkow that there have been similar threads around but I'd like to make this a little different. See, this is not which browser you are using but which is your favorite one and i will also try to put every possible browser here so we don't have to vote "other.." that often. I am also trying to put them in the order..

    I am using Opera just because i am not allowed to install my favorite browser which is Firefox. I like a lot of browsers (flock, opera, safari, firefox) but Firefox is definitely my favorite one. I've been using it for quite a long time and i love the addons :)

    I mostly use Firefox 3.

    The only time I use another browser is if the site does not allow Firefox or when watching HD TV shows on Fox.com, ABC.com etc... As their video player software is always buggy under Firefox. In which case I use Safari 3 in OS X or Internet Explorer 7 in Windows.

    Geeze, there's a lot of browsers I haven't even heard of.

    Either Safari or FireFox.
    FireFox is amazing, but I'm hooked on Safari.
    Therefore, I tend to shuffle between the two.

    I know that Ziggy Pastorious uses Opera but I can't seem to be all that fond of it.
    BTW, you should put Google's Chrome browser on the list.

    Same here, I know how you feel.
    It's hard to decide between two wonderful browsers.

    Firefox on OS X, Firefox on Windows, or Chrome if I'm casually using my other Vista-based laptop. :cool:

    I use Opera (10 alpha) on all of my computers. Opera link seemlessly keeps them all up to date with each other in terms of bookmarks, speed dial, notes and some other things.

    Now if only I could get it on my phone, that way I would get over the air instant updates for all of the above and have my todos synced as well.

    On my lowly PC google chrome chokes a lot, firefox is just too slow and internet explorer is well internet explorer. Safari for the PC is tripe as well. While Opera smmooooooth.

    I have been using OmniWeb for about 18 months now. It's excellent and follows the Mac way of doing things even better than Safari.

    I have tried many on the list and for me this is the best one of all. :apple:

    +1 for Firefox 3 now that I've been able to solve the two reasons I still used Safari. First, I came across a well done theme that makes Firefox look pretty much like safari. Second, using multi-clutch I was able to enable swipe gestures to work with FF. Those solutions resolved my last issues with using Firefox 100%.

    Opera except for two or three sites that it doesn't like (deviantART being one of them) then I use Safari.

    Firefox seems shoddily put together if you ask me - or at least did. I tried it a while back and had graphical issues and the whole thing just seemed disjointed. It kind of scared me away.

    Although I have recently had a couple of problems with Safari 3.2.1 I still stand by it as being the best.

    You know, if the theme bothers you you can change it.

    Well, I got the best of both browsers for awhile.
    I used FireFox but installed a Safari theme.
    Unfortunately the Safari theme stopped working when I upgraded to FireFox 3.
