Firefox with Vimperator. I like the quickmarks which provides a shortcut to frequently visited web sites.

Chrome seems to deal with memory management best, especially when a lot of tabs are open, and has a certain compatibility with pages I use. Firefox has great addons though. It is an easy fallback.

For a lightweight browser, I use D+. I also patched it so it can be used as a replacement for applications like dialog. So, it's not only good for quick browsing of the web, you can use it to provide a user interface for scripts.

My vote goes to Qupzilla. It is a relatively new product and when it is surprised me with it's performance and and it's layout. I think that it has a lot of potential to become even better in the near future.

Opera 12 was the best web browser that ever existed. It is becoming unmaintained now, although they promised security fixes.

From now on, I don't think I'll ever find such a good browser as Opera 12

Thumbs up Firefox, no doubt!

Firefox rocks!
It's more open and free than Chrom* and much better on the addons site, way better!

Firefox for now, possibly Arora in near future if Firefox keeps trying to be more chrome like.
