links is great for text(a lot better than lynx) and firefox for normal browsing.

I find it funny though, that with links -g, links does a better job than dillo at rendering sites.

It's a tough choice between dillo or links graphical.. links renders sites better due to supporting frames, but I don't like it's fonts. Dillo has a better interface and I use it most so I voted for dillo. Besides I like the way dillo is going more. It'll be an amazing browser when supporting ssl, frames and css. Hopefully the team will succeed at it .

best text browser would be elinks for sure.

Opera on both windows and linux. Supports everything I need out of the box without any annoying plugins, faster than firefox for me (on both linux and windows), integrated email client, and a smaller download than firefox. Hands down the greatest browser ever.

Firefox, I use it on windows and linux, since it's the fastest and doesn't have millions of annoying adds, or security holes. Wouldn't ever dream of using something else

I strongly wish that this were multiple choice. I voted for Firefox but I don't want Mozilla to lose out.

I use both.

Meanwhile I prefer on Linux Konqueror but Firefox must obviously win the title "Browser of the year" because it really conquered back the web
