I Say Chromium because the Syncing abilities are not in ANY other browser. I humbly admit I am using the non-opensource Chrome but I am shallow and Like the colors of the icon better...But Chromium is open source and can be copied and changed by anyone while keeping the syncing abilities. And I can't wait till that happens!!

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.
Opera is still the farmer's friend:
a) Opera's turbo function makes a sub-56K connection feasible;
2) HSPA broadband costs less.

are you serious?!

@goanna300 oh well i understand you man , i also use opera on slow connections i have a copy of it everywhere i go on my friend the internet.

i have tested opera's turbo , but sometimes , even on 56K modem , it makes pages with lots of images load slower than they would do without turbo .. they have to tweak it the server side that they say so it be faster...

Can not decide

I have been using Chrome because it is faster then Konqueror and Firefox.
Nevertheless, knowing that Epiphany is very fast, I have just installed and tested it, and I found it so quickly as Chrome. Chrome is not much stable, but I'm not sure that Epiphany is more stable then Chrome, because I have not used it from old, because of personal issues.
Firefox has the best support and plugins in Debian Lenny.
Konqueror, well, I like it for personal issues, but, as browser, it is not fast and has several problems of support and plugins.
I compared Chrome and Epiphany in Google search, Yahoo answers, and http://www.bbc.co.uk/languages/french/lj/taxi/. This last requires flash, which run very well in both.
Thus, I point these three, Epiphany and Chrome as the fastest and Firefox as that which has the best plugins.

Are you sure you have checked out Firefox 4? Sync for passwords, history, opened tabs, etc. is right there! Chromium starts faster (about 1 or 2 seconds in my rig-s) But that's before adding about 4 plugins...

Shhhh! Don't mention the difference.
That would be real barbecue-stopper talk. I think the self-censorship has something to do with Google's
*above-reproach-cool* status.

[BTW I use Chromium for anything Ajax-intensive].
***Also, when you want to save a flash movie, it's sitting right there in Chromium/cache!! The simplest way yet.

Firefox! I would go with Chrome/Chromium, but it has issues when it comes to working with ASP.NET+IIS sites (notably, Microsoft's Online Web App for Exchange - this is what we use at work, due to our requirement for Blackberries).
