I'd be curious to know where Firebird is getting its votes from - mainly from ex-Mozilla and ex-Opera users but I wonder about the ratio between the two.

And it's interesting that, if you add up the Mozilla family of browsers it's almost as lopsided as the webserver category. (Well, okay, nothing's *that* lopsided, but still...)

Phoenix/Firebird

And if you download a few add-ons/skins it becomes godly.

Links works well and displays much better than lynx, but it isn't in the list.

Opera all the way. Windows or Linux. It's what I'm using right now.

Konq for me. It handles Javascript and Cookies better than any other browser. Its quick, and doesn't tack long to load. Firebird just didn't cut it for me. Nice but misses some important things to control over how it behaves. Just too basic for me. Galeon is good on Gnome.

Well, Epiphany is also Gnome's official browser, so its kinda suprising that it isnt on the poll...

I've even installed Mozilla at my work, where I need to use Windows 2000. I like it a lot better then Internet Explorer.

Jay for mozilla

Hey is *mozilla* firebird not simple *firebird*. There is an oss database named firebird (tm)

http://www.mozilla.org/roadmap/branding.html
Quote:
3. When referring to Thunderbird or Firebird before or during the 1.4 release cycle, make sure to use the project name with Mozilla pre-pended as "Mozilla Thunderbird" or "Mozilla Firebird" instead of Mozilla alone or Firebird/Thunderbird alone.

After the release of 1.4 we will be doing our primary development on the Firebird and Thunderbird projects. When we do releases of that codebase we should be using self-descriptive brand identities for the public and the press. New rule:
