Chromium for me. You guys have sparked my interest towards trying out SRWare iron, though.

Firebird was awesome, but I quickly went off Mozilla once they turned to Firefox. It get very bloated very quickly
That all said, it seems to be awesome again these days (what little of it I use)

Firefox is my favorite, with Opera second. That said, I voted for Midori because of the improvements I've been seeing in it and because Mozilla has this ridiculous rapid release now.

Didn't get the the chance to vote on this one but if I had I would have voted Midori. Reallly coming along and a pleasant alternative to Firefox.

I did not vote, but Midori simply the best for me in terms of cpu performance especially when doing flash videos. Midori totally eclipses the rest in terms of maintaining my laptop performance while streaming videos from espn or youtube.

My 2 cents.

I've been using Midori for 2 years. A great little browser built on apples web kit. It's more of an alternative to Chromium than Firefox which is built on gecko.

Now if they would fix the problem with bookmarks not being able to be sorted I'd give it a 5 star. Until then I've made a bookmarks.html file, ordered the way I want, and I have that as my home page.
I like having a tool bar on the bottom of the browser window with buttons in which one can instantly turn on or off images, script and plugins. It's not as full featured as Firefox, but is dependable, configurable and light.

Some more web kit browsers and libs.
