I voted Chrome, as my usual mistress Firefox fell off her pole while dancing upside down and lost her flash. It was an ugly scene.

I'm using Chrome straight from the evil empire of Google and it works. It also still has it's balls, even after Debian wanted to cut away the offending naughty bits, like some bunch of infuriated nannies with sharpened knives. I hope they run with scissors next.

I think Netrider is an interesting new browser. It does not use WebKitGTK nor QtWebKit like the ones mentioned in the list above but the lightweight FLTK GUI instead. So the RPM is just 6.5 MB in size which is quite small for a WebKit based browser.

FeuerFuchs for sure.

It's nice to see some love for Opera, though.

I really hate what they did to the FireFox gui. AFAIC they ruined it. I'm using PaleMoon for now and looking for another home. Maybe I'll bite the bullet and go with Chrome or Opera.

Pale Moon gets my vote!

(On the linux side a search for 'pm4linux' will get you to the installer and more...).

I've tried others, but Firefox still does the best job for my needs.

Please include the new kid on the block: Otter Browser, sprung from Opera's shooting-in-the-foot episode.

http://otter-browser.org/

Web browser controlled by the user, not vice-versa

Otter Browser, project aiming to recreate classic Opera (12.x) UI using Qt5.

Firefox. Have it set up with the old-style GUI so only the preference dialogue is a little annoying. Tend mainly to use Flash for YouTube so don't notice the older version.
When I do need updated Flash I use Chromium and for Netflix I use Chrome but I'm not keen on the interfaces and things like cookie handling are annoying (the only reason I tend not to bother with opera -- no cookie whitelisting).
Have to say though, I really do think the above it true for me as I use browsers and if I were to recommend somebody try another browser, as a replacement to IE for example, I would urge them to try a few and find their favourite. I probably use browsers more than any other application and I realise just how personal browser choice can be and how dependent upon usage. Heck, at work I find IE does the job fine and I don't notice I'm using it!

Konqueror with the latest QtWebKit on Qt 4. It must have a solid version of kwebkit part for stability. The 20131207git version works well for me. That version of kwebkitpart doesn't support WebGL, but is more stable than versions that do. I successfully compiled QtWebKIt 2.3.4 on both Slackware 14.1 and Debian wheezy. I like having the browser, file browser, document viewer and ftp client in one app.
