Although it's almost the same as Firefox, it's not quite. Iceweasel is the Debian browser, one of the more heavily used distros.

No IE?

My choice is Firefox, despite them killing off my addons with each rapid release.
Though once I have no addons left then who knows!

Chrome, I like the themes and extensions (and the fact I only have to type L and press enter and I am at LQ) and overall way it works. I also use Midori,Firefox, or Opera depending on needs. But as far as one I find the most appealing and would call 'favorite' it goes to google.

Firefox gets my vote. I also think IceWeasel ought to be there.

At work (windows) I didn't want to use IE so I installed Chrome. Having used it for 6 months, I started using it at home. It's fast and I like it. Having said that, my vote goes to Firefox.
