Question for fellow Firefox users. Which channel are you on? Ironically, IME releases from their Beta channel seem to run more smoothly than do ones from their "stable" channel. In fact, releases from the Firefox Aurora channel run pretty smoothly considering their alpha builds. I have run Aurora myself for awhile now without any major issues.

I know there is also an ESR channel, but I'm more curios about how many that voted for FF are on one of the dev channels.

I really think Chrome/Chromium should be 1 option!!!

I used Firefox for years starting at version 1.0. In the last year or 2 I have done most of my surfing on Chrome/Chromium (except on my iPhone I use Safari) because I like it's minimal interface and design. It is also noticeably faster the FF.

My vote this year is Chromium! Chrome is great but seems to have a bit more errors/issues, mostly related to the Flash Player IMO.

I have seen many sources suggest Linux users use Chrome since it has a more updated Flash plugin. However flash on Chrome doesn't work with many things, like Amazon Instant Video and my online banking. The issues with flash on Chrome have pushed me back to using Chromium, where I don't have any issues with it using the older flash.

There is not a single answer

On my android tablet OPERA is the clear winner.

At home I will not leave Iceweasel

Noticed dillo mentioned, but not DPlus. DPlus is similar to Dillo (was originally based on it), but is far more cross-platform portable. Am using it on a program that works on Linux, FreeBSD and Windows.
