except on speed and features, of course... and integration with your favorite DE, as FF doesn't integrate with both Gnome and KDE.

anyway, i prefer konqueror. i hope the windows port will give it a bit more support from websites, as its mostly a better browser than FF but sites that would work don't because they feed it the wrong data (Gmail for example)...

konqi had all these great FF features (small, fast, extension support) since ages, before FF existed anyway.

elinks is great but lacks graphics.. 'links -g' lacks functionality. Both lack DOM support. So FireFox for now.

Firefox for now - Yup

Somebody must have said it earlier -
Concept of Tabs always existed before firefox came. Opera always had tabs even though browser was not that user freindly.
Essentially I see Firefox as Mozilla browser with Tabs option.

But again since the concept of plugins didnt catch up earlier. I personally feel that Adblock really gave all the way and energy for creating more plugins.

Browser wars might heat up after Vista release with Microsoft joining Tabbed browsing bandwagon.

I find myself using Konqueror about 90% of the time because of its natural integration with sooo many applications. But if I am just picking a browser to... ya know... browse... I generally pick firefox. What is more interesting to me that the browser is how my habits have change in the way I browse. The web has become so integrated into the desktop that I really don't do that much traditional web browsing. I picked firefox, but that may change next year.

Never thought I'd vote for it, but I want to tell peeps how much the Opera browser has improved over the past year. Though I still find myself using Firefox (on WinXP, Win2K and KDE) the Opera browser has some nice features. It is getting more popular with me.
