Firefox, hands down... Will have to keep an eye opened for Seamonkey, though... Now that's odd... I always believed that internally Mozilla 1.x was called Seamonkey back then when firefox was called fenix and was only a draft of a project.

It was, that's why they chose that name.

Why do you wanna use Adblock?

I mean yeah...some sites have just annoying ads...

But some, like this one get some help if somebody clicks on the ads.
I don't use an Adblocker. I just don't visit those sites, that have annoying ads.

Firefox Rocks. With the many many extensions and themes you can make it do just about anything.

Never could get used to the interface on Opera it is just too weird.

I use Firefox 99% of the time the other 1% is either Konqueror or Lynx.

I voted for firefox - for me it is the best all around browser. However, I occasionally use linu on fairly slow machines (p2-300). While firefox and konquerer certainly work on that old beast, links2 is a great browser. It doesn't render perfectly, but it does work at least as well as dillo (or better). I *think* links2 can also be entirely text based, but lynx also works well on the CLI.

Firefox; No Comments (No good telling me this is not a perfect world. I know that. I simply love Firefox)


When I've got nothing else only I use IE (Nothing fundamentalist about that, I just love the freedom). I've used Opera a few times. Before Firefox I used Mozilla too. And I used elinks too to post in LQ.

I gave it a shot after I heard one of the podcasts where Jeremy and a bunch of other people (can't remember who) where talking about which browser they were using, and no one was using konqueror but did not really indicate why. At first thought that there was too much crap in it, but then after I found the interface settings and customized it, it is awsome. Although I like the easy way to add plugins in firefox, themes/extensions, there is sooo much functionality in konqueror that I never knew about until I used it for a week or so and I am still finding really cool things that change the way I browse the net.

I love Konqueror because right now it has the best rendering engine (for the purpose of this statement let's consider Safari as a Konqueror variant since it's based on KHTML) and it is far faster than Firefox or MSIE, colorzilla, the torrent toolbars, Resize Search Box, and Tab Mix Plus. Another thing I REALLY love about Firefox is the find toolbar in the bottom. Konqueror STILL uses an MSIE-style find; confined to a dialog box. Ever since Firefox introduced its find feature I cannot stand other browsers' implementation of find.

Opera all the way!
I started with the Mozilla Suite, went to Firefox until version 1.5, then tried Opera when it dropped the ads. Since I started using Opera, I've switched my work computer from Firefox to Opera. Faster page rendering, faster load time, great features, customizable, nice mail client. If you have not tried it for at least a week, you should.

Firefox it's great. I got version 1.5 and it works so well. I would have voted for Opera but some pages don't load to well. Maybe in the future...

Another of your crazy/silly questions. There are two browsers in the world worth using IE and Firefox. Need I say more?
