I browse using Firefox on most computers, but I do prefer Opera. I also use Links and Dillo a surprising amount (on my old Toshiba notebook with wireless pcmcia connection)

lynx

usually I use FF, but I don't like it ... too bloated and full of memory leaks.

I say lynx

Hm, no real surprise there, then.

TBH, i was hoping Opera would have a bigger share, but I suppose I would...

I love Firefox, and it is so easy to Install on Linux. I like the fact Opera runs on Linux, but it is Not Open Source and I have a Die Hard opera surporter for a Brother and He gets on my Nerves.

Not surprising that Firefox won. The greatest browser that I have ever used. I like how Lynx beat Netscape. I used to use Netscape back in the day, but lynx is certaintly better (nice for reading all text pages).

[light-heartedly] Because it doesn't gobble tons of memory and die for no good reason? (But seriously, at least on my BSD systems, Firefox is essentially unusable because of random crashes. On Linux its much better, though, just a bit sluggish.)
