firefox -- no competition
links or lynx is the obvious choice when X is crashed

You may well be but you have some big nuts to admit it...

Everytime I update I check to see if Konqueror's gotten any better but it still doesn't compare to Firefox so +1 for Firefox.

Well I am and probably always will be a fan of Opera but this year was my first year that I actually used Firefox alot for a change so I voted for it. It is now my first choice browser with Opera being second and Dillo third

This one's an easy win for firefox! There's no competition whatsoever. Don't say Opera because it's garbage.

I use the Swiftfox version of Firefox, but I guess you can't have it all.

I use Firefox 2.0 most of the time, although Links2 is absolutely indispensable when working with the TUI.

Konqueror 99% of the time. The other 1 percent (maybe once a month) I use iceweasel.

Opera would have gotten my vote but when Opera 9 beta build 181 came out i reported the panning (shift middle click, and enable panning) not working when you've zoomed in, it just doesn't go to the right at all, and then they come up with stupid widgets, so opera lost my vote

Konqueror gets my vote, i like kde so konqueror gets it

Aahhhh, another Webbie user! Our first home internet device was a webtv, and we still have it. My wife still uses it to surf from the couch. That browser, indeed that whole O/S, is crippleware now, but it still has potential ... if only Gates hadn't bought it!

Have you seen the MSNTV 2?
