Other browsers remind me of FF when it was just starting i.e. 0.9/1.x.

Firefox is still the best although Chromium is starting to nip at its' heels.

I like Firefox because of Rikaichan works better than Rikaisan (the Opera counterpart).
I like Opera because of its sync feature which is less complicated than Firefox one.

I've been using it since version 0.xx (mostly in MS Windows XP). I also have tried Chrome, Konqueror, lynx, Opera, and SeaMonkey.

First thing I do on any OS is install Opera.

Rekonq has also really impressed me this year.
