Results should be arranged in descending order of votes for easier comparison.
What say ?

Hooray for Chrome! I like Chrome, but I do wish however they would add a menu bar. This is one of the reasons (besides many pages hate chrome) that I use Firefox still for most things.

On Linux it's Firefox, on Mac it's Safari and on Windows nothing at all.

Like that is actually a big deal! Some of the very best software is closed source (Nero for example) and some is open source (OpenOffice or Firefox for example).

And like you I am a big Opera fan boy. I switched to it only a few months ago and love it. Before that I had used Firefox since 2005.

There isn't a Safari for any distro but you can run Safari quite well through WINE on any Linux. IMO I can't see why you'd want to except for preliminary testing as it's not as good as Konq, FF, Op or Chrome on Linux, but YMMV.

FireFox-Chrome one-two punch.

When I want to download movies onto my hard drive from youtube, FireFox.

When I want a light, blazing fast browsing experience, Chrome

I can tell you a way of getting videos from youtube without addons.
Clear the contents of ~/.mozilla/firefox/Something.default/Cache then open the webpage of video.
The video file will be big in size in that folder.
You can also use trid (http://mark0.net/soft-trid-e.html) to verify that the file is flv
or
open it in your video player
or
run
Code:
$file ~/.mozilla/firefox/qcfhl2ba.default/Cache/6FCA60A7d01(whatever the full path is)
OUTPUT
6FCA60A7d01: Audio file with ID3 version 23.0 tag, MP3 encoding
I have found ways to get music & video from listening site just out of curiosity.
Bye!
