I really don't think this will be much of a competition; Firefox will win hands down.

That said, Galeon has definitely come a long way this year, and I'm finally beginning to like the 1.3.x series.

Konqueror is good, but it doesn't get the job done as quickly and efficiently as Firefox. It also seems to hiccup when rendering many pages.

I voted for Konqueror. Konqueror in KDE3.3 is already quite good. But Konqueror from KDE CVS just rocks.

My first choice would probably be Firefox, though Epiphany does a good job as well.

Firefox for speed and customization's. I still play around with Galeon and Konqueror.

Re: Browser of the Year

After using mozilla suite since 1.1,
FIREFOX 1.0 is the browser of 2004.

i dl'ed firefox.
i don't see the benefits. thou there is built-in popup blocker, so it seems. i've noticed no performance differences from other browsers.

please tell me why i should like firefox. and why you do....

making a vote tells nothing but preference.

My vote goes to Mozilla. It's not as fast as firefox, but I like the complete package that it provides. Browsing, email, address book, etc. No need to learn multple apps, it's all right there in one nice interface.

Firefox, not only because of its quality, but because of how it has evolved.
