Well I voted Opera but I have gone back to Firefox again.

Sometimes when downloading files Opera cpu usage goes wacky and everything slows to a halt.
Typing/backspacing in address bar freezes Opera.
When clicking links from applications 3 Opera windows open. Same goes when typing 'opera -newpage xxx' in terminal so I know it's an Opera problem.
Script warning message boxes on BBC iPlayer site even though Firefox has no problems.
Other things like no rightclick-delete in bookmarks menu etc.

@Ronss: there is a Firefox speed-dial extension available. Haven't used it myself though.

FireFox (ok, IceWeasel, but c'mon, it's the same for the purpose of the vote!)
w3m for lite, and no, it's _not_ covered by (e)links/lynx!
that would be like saying that opera is already covered by firefox!

Defiantly Firefox.

Lots of great add-ons, and themes to match whatever you like.
Opera is a great browser, but it crashes too much.

Huh? from your own link, it states that:

Bon Echo Alpha 1 is a developer preview release of our next generation Firefox browser
So for the purposes of this poll, Bon Echo is Firefox.

Debian makes me use IceWeasel. But I would rather love Firefox as the default browser for any distro.

Aren't they the same thing? Also, I think there is a package available for officially branded Firefox.

Oh sure they're the same app. What I meant is I miss the name Firefox and its logo. A trivial matter though. Also, thought if there were no such issue like this Firefox-Iceweasel fight between companies dealing with open source.

Well, if you want the name and logo-ed Firefox, you could use the Ubuntu pkgs or download from Mozilla. Their might be something in non-free as well.

I voted for Epiphany because I think it's the best browser if you want a web browser that is only a web browser. Its implementation of smart bookmarks, tab states and use of mousewheel scrollovers to switch tabs makes it very nice and simple to use...less typing, less clicking, more browsing!

Thumbs up

Epiphany's edgy smart bookmarks implementation, visual cleanness and double choice from Seamonkey and Firefox engines. Indeed Seamonkey's engine isn't very recommended but provides me a great and lighter browser. Sadly I wont vote elinks which is great too in the text side.
