Firefox as it manages profiles better than the others and in deed you can share profiles between other OSs installed on your system such as windows. Then there is the extension data base.

Opera here. I use it both on linux and windows. I know it's inns and outs. I don't like IE at all. The 6.0 version doesn't even have tabs!. Firefox is also a good browser, but I haven't used it much.

But seeing as that's a friendly fork of Firefox with some CPU-specific enhancements for speed, I voted Firefox.

Konqueror since it is so much integrated into KDE. And KDE is simply impressive, as is the concept of the KIO-slaves...

Opera 9

Opera 9 - I've been using it a lot more. especially since yahoo has been bugging lately.

Rock solid
Excellent CSS!!!
Great JavaScript (opera had a sour history here until now)

Excellent interface and features
(new features in ff are often standard opera features - grant it: opera also borrows good ideas)
widgets. (mozilla has the upper hand here)
the Wand
Error consol
Scalable (I use it on my cell phone)
Reads WML pages.
+- keys also scale images


I'm also glad that SeaMonkey picked up the mozilla suite.


Of course Firefox rocks in it's own right.


The more browsers the merrier.

For everyday use I use Konqueror. I like how I can set the toolbars on the side and how it can pose for any other browser (comes in handy sometimes)

I still go back to firefox when I need the torrent search toolbar

SeaMonkey, Mozilla, Netscape and Flock all have exactly the same profile manager as Firefox, and indeed in SeaMonkey, Mozilla and Netscape the proifile manager is integrated better into the menu structure.

How does Firefox manage profiles better than the other programs that have the same profile manager, integrated better into their meny structures?

In exactly the same way as you would in SeaMonkey, Mozilla, Netscape or Flock? This is by no means specific to Firefox!
