I've used Firefox for a number of years now and like it a lot. I have tried Chrome and Chromium, but found them difficult due to the apparent lack of a menu. It seems one just has to know where things are? (Unless I missed a setting somewhere?) Anyway, I'm sticking with Firefox. Cheers all...

Firefox. It gives me no trouble and I'm very used to it after many years.

I have been an Opera user for many years, from 2000 on or so. It has a number of excellent features like synchronizing speed dial, passwords, bookmarks and other settings through their server. Or per site specification of was contents was allowed to run. Opera was often first offering such features, and offers them still in the best possible way. Without installing additional plugins, or annoying logins.

Unfortunately the main task for a browser, browsing has degraded over time. Still not all sites are displayed error-free or not fully functional. Printing PDFs is not possible since the last 3 or 4 years. (It says it prints PDF, but it is PS.) Most annoying of everything is that many sites push the processor usage to 100%. Opera still blames that on the web site design. The site might be not compliant with W3C, but Chrome uses 25-50% for the same sites. How is that?

So I find myself switching to Chrome more and more often. No matter how much I liked Opera, I had to vote for Chrome for increased usability over Opera.

Key-driven navigation is unsurpassed in Opera, which is still my main reason to use it, but I have to use chromium more and more as sites cannot be used in Opera.
If you happen to be familiar with Emacs, you may want to check out Conkeror, as it is designed to be driven first and foremost by keyboard, utilizes very Emacs like keybindings, and employs XULrunner as it's core engine. Noticeably faster than FF.

That said, I'm voting for Firefox this year. Not sure whether it deserves "Browser of the Year" per se, but we all know this is going to come down to either FF or Chrome/ium in the final analysis and Google has become so evil as of late.

You quite obviously do not read my other posts

Yes, I am familiar with emacs, and your suggestion does not really feels like an improvement at all but more like getting from bad to worse.
Opera enables me to bind whatever key I like to whatever action, so I use several vi-like keys to navigate and search.

Yes, I did read your post. Specifically this bit; "Opera does currently not update their browser for Linux and many sites are falling over....". Given your appreciation for keyboard driven tools, I thought you might enjoy Conkeror (not to be confused with KDE's browser). That it uses xulrunner as it's underlying engine means that things pretty much just work. But apparently I missed that you're into vi...

I recently discovered QupZilla and like it better than Firefox.
