It's younger sibling may be getting all the parties and media attention, but Mozilla is still the only COMPLETE internet communications environment. Mozilla 1.7 is rock-solid, extensible and while it lacks some of the nice shortcuts of FF (like editable menus) it has HALF the system resource requirements.

I notice that emacs-w3m is missing from the list, and that of all the browsers in the list, only emacs-w3m is actually a new innovation for 2004.

Firefox with it's modularity, quickness and relative security gets my strong nod!

Firefox, but only because Konqueror doesn't have anything like extensions yet. I still think Konqueror is prettier and renders text better (since KDE globally takes into account your X server's dpi).

Firefox because that's what I've started using in Windows....

Though in Linux I usually use Konqueror
