Mozilla is big and bloated. Firebird beats the crap out of it. Galeon does too.

Although I have a soft spot for Konqy, I voted for Mozilla Firebird. Why? It's fast, it's Gecko, it's purdy, and it functions almost the exact same all across the OS board (including single-clicking instead of double clicking to select the URL in the location bar!) Good work mozilla!

Mozilla.

If I want lightweight, I'll use lynx. ;-)

Although, perhaps I'll check out Mozilla Firebird. I really haven't given it much thought.

Well... I think I would be a Konqueror voter. It's simple not too overweight with graphics
and does what I want it to without complaining.

A year ago I would have said Opera. 6 months ago Mozilla. But now It's Mozilla Firebird/Phoenix. Fast, light, customizable, tabbed browsing, and Open Source.
It definately opens faster for me on both windows and linux.
My only beef is importing bookmarks/favorites--Konqueror does a much better job of this, able to import, and export, everything I threw at it.
