I've already voted for Galeon having used it for five years or so and have fired up FireFox in the past to have a sqiz. I found saving images in Galeon very easy but a hassle in FireFox.
So upon reading the encouraging posts among this thread I decided to bung it on again. After a small amount of poking around I came to the enhacements pages on the net. Ahhh... this is where FireFox lives.
Now I can make it do what I want. It is good, um no, great!
Next year my vote may be different.

Firefox may or may not be the best browser, but in all honestly I have to vote for it because of what it has done in raising the profile of open-source software. And I do like to use it too.

Yeah, I'll go with opera as well. Not firefox (Baaaaaah!)



p.s. Ok firefox is good, but not the best, and yes I can see where they're getting their ideas as well!
