Oh.
Firefox have rank first years after years, and it seem that fox will rank first this year too.
I think konqueror and opera will compete for the second position

I use Opera as my web browser cause Firefox is just too slow in certain places.

After a quick count of the comments, it looks like Firefox is in the lead and to help keep it there, I'm adding my "Firefox is the best" comment ;-)

Browser of the Year

I voted for Mozilla. It's an old-timer I know, but its a tabbed browser. If you don't want to wait for it to load a page, just switch to another tab while its loading. I rarely have to sit and wait for something to load.

Firefox I guess because it is the best that we have. Mozilla seems to be more stable. There is still room for improvement in open source browsers. But a BIG thanks to all of the developers.

I love little Dillo. But, it does not render frames.

Did you try out the patched dillo version? It supports frames, https, tabs... It's quite good. Now it's the default in debian testing, because the official dillo is moving a bit too slow...

Thanks for the tip. I am very interested in the dillo project.
One of the first things I did after installing Debian was to install dillo.
I haven't used it for a long time because of its limitations, but I just tried it and it is much improved. Earlier I did apt-get dist-upgrade and already had the improved version of dillo--I just hadn't noticed.

Opera. Fast, featureful, most innovative of the bunch, and as of 8.x, highly polished too.

Definitely Opera. Firefox is not offering anything innovative.

Wish I could change my vote. Firefox just pulled the last straw by making me lose source code when a memory leak in it caused my system to freeze and require a hard reboot. Opera it is v9 is even including extensions
