For me, it used to be Chrome. I switched from Firefox to Chrome shortly after Chrome came out. However, recently I switched back to Firefox. The reason for this is because I use Synergy between both my laptops almost constantly. Chrome doesn't work well with Synergy on the server side, therefore I was forced to use Firefox. Firefox, however, is much better than it used to be I think. I have very little issues with it, aside from poor flash performance (thanks to Adobe for dropping Linux support). So, I still use Chrome when I want to watch Hulu as flash performs better in Chrome, from my experience.

Fox for Freedom :-)

Occasionally during the hills of time I've use Add-ons, java or download mangers plus (now) VLC but for the most part the readme file in the flash-DL or this site: as e.g: has been working well; it's all about the change and Nightly now supports backwardly to 32-bit so happy new year.

P.s: HULU, games,,, any* work fine here...

Honestly, all browser sucked this year. Firefox was on top, just before their ESR 17 version.

The old command line staple still blazes past the graphical competition, who have become too focused on other things besides browsing and information extraction as of late.
