Firefox. I've tried some, but not all, of the rest.

I've been using Firefox since version 1.5, and I don't see myself dropping it any time soon. However, Uzbl and dwb are great keyboard driven browsers and lynx is a life saver for those times when a GUI just isn't available.

This is a difficult choice. I had been using Chrome, but to be honest this year it has given me a lot of trouble. It does not want to work with many websites. Firefox/Iceweasel is always nice. However I think they need to improve their sync and make it less complicated. I have tried Midori this year and really like it. The new Epiphany is actually really nice now.

However my vote went to Chromium. It is what I am using now. It is open source. It has all the benefits of Chrome but it has given me none of it's problems.

I've been using Firefox since at least version 2 (maybe earlier). In fact, I prefer V3.6 or thereabouts. There were a lot of good themes that are no longer compatible with the newer versions. I miss those. I have Chrome and Opera loaded but don't use them much. It's just hard to break away from FF (like an old friend).
