Always experimenting with that, at the moment it is Luakit that fits my needs the best.

Using Firefox for general browsing and Chromium now and again when I don't want/need Adblock and NoScript.
Occasionally use Opera and do like it but I can never get it set as I have Firefox.
For one site I use I even have to boot a Windows VM for some operations and that makes me very sad.

i enjoy Chrome, when I can get no-script and adblock+ to function properly with it same goes for FireFox. I have not used Opera in many years, but last I played with it it was nice.

The only time I use safari is when I can not get a web page to function properly under Chrome or Firefox, then ill put out Safari to complete that specific task and close it out to rest.

Yeah, but since v4.0 Firefox just gets worse and worse. I am currently using v14.0.1.

I've not had any problems with Firefox at all on Linux or Windows. But, then, I do set Adblock and NoScript so only a few sites are allowed so perhaps that's it.

Usually Firefox, but I'm finding Chromium snappier and more fulfilling, right now.
