I'm voting Mozilla beause of the integration. Plus I can't help but feel like the wheel is being re-invented with FF & Thunderbird...

I have just too little experience with firefox.
I usually use Mozilla, Konqueror , Netscape.
Opera has too much publicities.

I have been using opera since version 6.x (before I moved over to linux) and after having gotten used to the speed of it, its hard to use mozilla or even firefox. I voted for opera as the best browser, but since firefox is free, per dollar it would be best.

Hi everyone...I'm new, but I have to agree, Firefox is awesome! I just started using it this week, and I can't imagine myself ever going back to Idiot Exploder...hehe

Firefox, for all reasons stated previously.

Where's the band-wagon gone..................ah there it is.

Firefox for me too.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, along with and the Gimp I see firefox as being one of the best open source project's I have ever seen.

Yet another vote for Firefox.

I use it in both Windows and Linux, and I use it a lot more now it comes as the default in Fedora.

BUT, Konqueror is definately my second choice, its much easier to be able to jump straight from [insert website] to my home, and get the pretty icons.

P.S. I never understood lynx
