Iceweasel is just a rebranded Firefox, so you can vote for that.

Chromium all the way - its sync function is great as I can have preference transferred to any computer, system regardless.

Firefox/iceweasel is from far the best choice
Others always show complications and/or are
Too far from open source spirit...

Although I use Google Chrome (purely for Flash Support... thanks for nothing Adobe!), I voted Chromium, as without the hours of development that goes into it, Chrome would be practically nothing.

Smile Elinks

I love Elinks in monochrome mode since I fell on it, the best to read on the web, a plain text in a terminal with no distractions really calms me down! Two colours and transparency! Of course to do all the rest I have to switch to Chromium!

I've done like brianL, and triedout some if not all the others, but I always end back at Firefox. I usually end up missing some essential feature of Firefox on the others.
Nightly is nice though, on stable release days.

Firefox is still the best. Chromium / chrome is faster by far but until it gets load tabs on demand it will just be a toy in my eyes. Chrome for me does not work with the 300 tabs I have open.

As an Arch user, Elinks was essential for me when updates were constantly breaking my Xorg. Browsing using Elinks straight from tty01 to read what I broke, then promptly applying a fix on tty02, was actually really easy. I never really use Elinks for anything else though.

Although Firefox won browser of the year for the tenth straight year it had its smallest vote percentage since the 2003 awards. In the 2003 awards Firefox, then called "Mozilla Firebird", got 38.31% of the vote. Firefox was in beta at the time, and the Mozilla suite came in second in the 2003 awards. Chromium made the largest gain from the 2011 awards, increasing by 3.91%. Firefox got 24 more votes than last year, but there were numerous more votes in the poll this time around. I did vote for Firefox, and I do have an attachment to using the heir to Netscape Navigator, but Google Chrome and its open source cousin have become quite a competitor.
