Where are the extensions? Do you have a URL to a repository? I've been wondering about that for a while. . .

IMHO, Its almost a silly question. Firefox bare bones is great. The extensions take it to another plane of existence. There have been some bumps in the road but it just gets better and better.

Would have liked to choose Safari

I know, not truly open source and no, I don't have a Mac so I don't use it. But it was the work of the Safari guys (which uses KHTML) which got Konqueror to pass the acid test...

And Safari would not be where it is now, without Konqueror. I see the improvements in Safari and Konqueror as more of a communal effort. Both camps benefit from each others work and some KDE devs can even commit changes to some stuff in the Safari CVS or SVN repo.

Firefox 1.5, of course! It's great as it is but you can make even better by using extensions.

several (15, i see here) extensions are delivered with konqueror, but i know of no external extension database. i think firefox just made it easier to writ extensions, as they didn't have to be in c++ (konqi's extensions have to be). so likely that's the main reason so many firefox extensions exist.

KDE4 will allow any KDE application to be scripted with javascript, and the app developer can easy add ruby, python and other languages - so if c++ is the problem, we'll see more extensions in KDE 4

Firefox is uni-platform, portable, fast, simple and yet the best I have used of the 10 years using computers (and it is also a good web-design tester). I tried them all out, Firefox is my top on the list.

True. Though it is still reasonably rare for a company to not only use, but to actively work with open source projects and they should thus be commended. The more this happens the better.

i tried konqueror after taking part in this vote. well i found that konquer could not load the gmail page in java mode. instead it opened in html mode. then i went to the konqueror site only to find that java 1.5 is not supported yet.

Again, I have to say Opera, it's just so fully featured.
