So I use Either Seamonkey or Opera
Some of Opera's best features require me to log in!
Sadly, Opera for Linux is effectively no more until further notice.
(About five to ten years time if the no-interest attitude of the company is anything to judge by)

Spyware? Iceweasel is simply Firefox rebranded (and backported security fixes).

I liked the speed of googlechrome but I really don't like being nooped on with out my permission I use FF I alsos like firefox because I am fairly familiar with it when I am on indows or what ever I can use backups off of my linix , I never really played round with other browers using Linux but in windows I have tried all sorts and over all FireFoxx is my choice.

But Firefox. I don't like chrome

Also I am sticking with FF 24 because of UI regressions

Talking Conkeror

The Goog has been doing so much evil last few years (ironically about the time Obama got elected), changing position on Net Neutrality, etc. ( that I'm not going to touch Chrome/ium with a ten foot pole.

Firefox has been going strong and offers great plugins, among which include ePubReader, wh/I use a lot.

That said, I'm voting for Conkeror, which I also like and use because it takes a different approach, stays lean & mean, and capitalizes on Emacs users keybinding habits.
