I am still happy with the Firefox and feel comfortable with it. Lot better than slow and dragging IE even on Window system

It's actively being developed, and has a decent user-base. Is there a procedure to request additional choices to be added to the poll?

Firefox is just way, way too customisable for anything else to unseat it from my desktop. 7 profiles, dozens of extensions and often more than a hundred tabs open

I voted Opera, because it has the most features, and still manages to be the smallest of the web browsers... It also happens to be vastly extensible and completely configurable, to the point where you can make it look like most browsers without too much work. It has built in IRC, E-Mail, and shortcuts that are handy to no end. Things like tab stacking, mass tab management, and mouse gestures. It has nice web dev tools built in like Dragonfly, and it has support for Greasemonkey scripts and adblock lists out of the box. It also has cloud syncing and a web platform that allow you to do cool things quickly, like host an instant media server, or sync your bookmarks and history across platforms.

It also happens to be damn fast...

Also, Opera was the group that proposed HTML5.
