I voted firefox ... it's what I use on all platforms. Anyway, I've used the mozilla stuff since the early netscape, back when it competed with mosaic, and it's always done the job pretty well.

Maybe I can be a counterpoint

FF3/Iceweasel have worked for me all through the year.
If they didn't behave, I'd just twist their arms till they worked.
Have not had any problems since

I'll be very happy when Dillo gets javascript and secure support fully working. But, links does everything I need (even the limited javascript I need). And it does render some pages better than lynx (which is my second favorite).

The addons/customization make Firefox the only one I use on a regular everyday basis. That said, I'm not happy with FF 3 and the "awful bar", places.sqlite etc. though I'll soon have to learn to live with it (still using FF2x).

Opera

I think Opera is best - you have web, mail, rss, irc in one application. But I wish it were GPL licensed...
