I liked firefox ( I mean debian's version: iceweasel), but it was so slow to start/ open new tabs I got sick of it. Chrome is really great! Although for greasemonkey scripts that need to check other tabs I still use iceweasel a bit.
Hooah for chrome!

I like the new beta9 of Firefox. I've tried others, and I still keep Opera updated, but Firefox is 99.9 for me.

Yeah, AOL has dropped support for netscape, but I keep a copy for historical reasons.

Safari does not run on Linux, and is therefore not eligible for the LinuxQuestions.org Members Choice Awards.

I would say Firefox, but Chrome has made quite the impression this last year, and the one factor that has actually made the difference between FFX and Chrome for me is the fact that Chrome opens when I click the icon, as opposed to Firefox which makes me wait for a few seconds (sometimes up to a minute)

I am loving the latest Chrome. Used to use FF but it was giving me lots of trouble - buttons not working, etc.

Chromium is the open source part of Chrome, basically it's Chrome without all the branding.

Firefox seems to run the best on Linux, for me anyway. I have an old P4 and a new AMD dual core and Chromium (stable, daily, all of them) run terribly on both. Graphical glitches galore. Maybe it's the humidity or something, but Chromium is excruciatingly slower than both Opera and Firefox. I guess it's just on my machines since everybody raves about it's speed so much.

And Firefox has the ability to, you know, deal with bookmarks in a reasonable way, mass download, and so on. Opera's ok, but it's closed source and its too much work to use the conveniently built in features like user styles and scripts. I can just pick up Firefox and go!
