I imagine everybody will vote for mozilla or one of its flavours but if you sit back and think from the perspective of what has come along the best this year its konqueror. Nothing displays code as fast and as correctly as konqueror. Now min-height has been added to cvs its the best browser. Nothing at all like those gecko browsers that just render badly.

At least if you run konq you know your not using something that really deep down is netscape

I would go with links in graphic mode when at home and when I'm at sschool and having problems with IE I ssh home and use links in textmode.

Otherwise than that it takes a lot of time to load libraries and stuff, firefox is solid

Hopefully we'll see stronger contender this year.

Hardly a surprise. The 1.0 release was spectacular!
I think 80% of pple @ work use ff as their primary browser now... that's saying something.

Just as an FYI - those were the unaudited results and should not have been visible. The official results will be available in a couple days.

FireFox Wins!

Firefox wins here IMHO. I currently am using Mozilla, but that is only because I am too lazy to install and configure another application (just like Windows users, hehehe). I have to confess that I have an xp partion as well as a win98, and FireFox is the best (except for the apps that make me $$$) application I have installed there, and I am including comparing it to full copies of M$ Orfice and Odome PhotoShop.

I absolutely love AdBlock and FlashBlock.. every non user I have shown or talked to about them wants to have them too I have a special place in my heart and mind for Oera. Opera can be hard to configure (just like Linux, even if it is in windoze), but it is better at handling downloaded files. If the Norwegians ever get together with the Californians, we are going to see a M$ killer for sure! (<-- hope-ing)
