Firefox, although heavily handicaped by flash plugin random freeze.
Highly spreading OSS word around.

I've tried every browser out there, and none compare to Firefox (or iceweasel, whatever you want to call it)

Firefox. Ok so others might beat it by miliseconds on some intensive JS tests, but my productivity would be paralysed without some of the addons I use

Chromium has a clear win here. Its fast to start up and its fast at everything else.
Its still very young and the way it does things in some areas is not ideal in my prespective, but hopefully things will impove.
Despite all of the above, i voted for my new love, w3m. I wish all the web was simple enough to be surfed with this wonderful browser.

i was using opera and if firefox beta 4 would have not been made yet i would vote for opera . i like opera very much , it's sync feature , turbo and stuff , but still , now with firefox beta 4 everything seems snappier with the adblock plus add on.

will vote for firefox. but just because firefox has not been making good use of the space in previous versions . now it does . i give beta 4 a ten.

I gotta say, I use Firefox a lot but I think I like Chrome even more. It seems snappier.

Opera rocks. (Even though I happen to be using FF right this moment. I'm 90% Opera, 10% FF.)
