I would think that only browsers that are still being updated and supported as of this year are eligible.

Firefox gets my vote. Lately, I have been testing out Chrome and I'm pleased with the results as well.

Firefox mostly.

I'm suprised at all the Chrome votes, I didnt think that closed source broswer from a multinational datamining company with an aggressive acquisition policy and rumoured ties to intelligence agencies would be so popular on a linux forum.

Hmmmm, that's a tuff one, Firefox because I use it most of the time, but Lynx...o yea' , Lynx is your swiss army knife if you're (like me sometimes) in a text-only setting...

Too bad I should only vote once...
