Couldn't we just send a trophy to the Mozilla Foundation and call it off?

I suppose, though it is marginal, let's face it they're all excellent!

Thumbs up

This is a difficult category. Its been a huge year for Firefox and Mozilla but for me, Opera renders pages faster and just feels better IMO. Builtin mouse gestures(I know Firefox can add this also with an extension) is a plus also. I'm glad elinks was added on the selection as that is my fallback browser or when I want to show people that you can browse the web without needing a GUI.

Geez. I voted awhile ago but just to help break up the chorus, I'll post to say I voted for mozilla.

There is nothing in Firefox's "look'n'feel" that appeals to me at all, especially in comparison to the look of mozilla with the lo-fi theme and mozilla's more Netscape vs. IE feel. And I like an integrated mail client and browser. So yay for the firefox folks but, as long as there's mozilla, I'm not going anywhere and I can only hope dillo is more finished by the time anything does happen to mozilla. If you want a fast simple standalone browser, dillo is the thing.

Wow. I said I didn't like the IE vibe of Firefox and just this minute I come across this.

"I'm developing this on Windows, since that's where the good debuggers and editors are" - Firefox head honcho.

Man. The panel on the top. Now that's <sarcasm>brilliance</sarcasm>!

Firefox will be great when it ALSO gets put back in the mozilla suite where it was supposed to be heading.
Mozilla gets my vote as I *WANT* an integrated package, but I also want Firefox as the browser IN that package.
(I remember the Mozilla team saying that Fire**** was just a project name and would be dropped as soon as the integration happened !!! )
