Opera is the best. The features, power, standards compliance, etc., make it my choice.

Well, I often use Firefox but for some sites I Lynx because is the fastest and the most secure.
If sites do not use images as an integrant part I use Lynx for all sites.
So I voted Lynx.

I really hope that someone votes for firefox ---- it really is very good and a little undervalued. Come on Firefox.

It's still under development, but in my opinion it's more complete than Firefox. The KHTML/Konqueror developers also react to bugs much friendlier. Example for Firefox: with loads of wishes on bugzilla they still don't want to add a 'new tab' button on the tab bar, and they also don't fix the "http:// without semicolon goes to" bug.
