I use Firefox for LQ, but if I could I'd use lynx. (I'm using fedora 16 lxde from a live usb because I haven't been able to get arch to connect to wlan yet, otherwise I'd use lynx)

But I do like to vote for Links.

I think Midori has a really bright future and I was tempted to vote for it but I went with the browser I've used for years, Iceweasel. Yes I know it is bloated but I just cant seem to like another browser.

I use Firfox a lot, because it just works. Almost every time I have problem, it's usually something I did I also like Links (and it's derivatives) in the terminal. Because I'm studying to become a web developer, I also have Opera and Epiphany installed, so I can test different rendering engines with my pages. I used to have Chrome/Chromium, but I dumped it for Epiphany because the devs are less shady and AFAIK are more honest to their users.

SeaMonkey is good for lower-end machines, because it provides you with email, IRC, and a browser in one package. Uzbl isn't really that usable to me. I find it kind of strange that it relies on an external program for the address/search/whatever bar. And would it kill the devs/packagers to put all the user config files in one place by default? Uzbl still hold promise though. I can't wait to see how the keyboard-driven browser evolves.

My vote in the poll was for Chromium. But I am still a die hard Seamonkey user. (Which I am using posting while on this forum) Rekonq has come along way which I have warmed to using more in the last year.

even if I like to let me seduce by the idea of changing browser, from time to time, I'm a Firefox addicted, there's no way to escape from it!!

for example, just an hour ago I downloaded the last Opera version.. maybe I'll give it a try, maybe I'll throw out the file in the next months.. who can say???
