Arora is my main browser. I also really like Conkeror -- it's like elinks but you can watch youtube videos with it. But since those weren't available i voted elinks.

its a very handy browser with all the features that you can look forward to in a browser.
at the same time may one more feature that when we open our mail account in our office sofware it does not show the full page of the mail but shows a small part of it with a slider and if we want to take a print of the mail it gives not the whole of the mail but that part which is visible in the window, may be i m a newbe and i dont know how to see the full mail of to get the print of the whole mail.

Well Firefox as a long time favorite, but very,very closely followed by Chrome as it's multiprocess model gives him more vivid responses. Also Firefox become a bit bloated over the years (just as we all?), so the hot breath Chrome should push FF new performance levels.

firefox is known for addons, but when you add more and more addons, then startup of firefox will be longer time.
have you observed this ??

for this , i am using disabling unused addons. when ever i required them i will enable it.

Chromium for the win. I still haven't forgiven the Fox devs for some of their decisions that made long standing behaviors require the creation of Remove-ons for Fx 3, and while I loved Epiphany they made the switch to the WebKit engine before it was really ready. I still can't use some of my fav Epiph extensions since the change and when I do a reinstall on my new hard drive I won't even bother installing Epiph until quite late in the install cycle. If at all.

Arora & Midori are interesting...

Chrome is my most used web browser, then Konqueror... I have Firefox when nothing else works, but it lost its starting place to the faster than an eye-blink opening of chrome on my KDE 3.5 Mepis 8 system...

I always had problems with flash in Firefox. Chrome did absolutely solve that.
