Perhaps not the best illustration of how good the browser is -- Firefox on my system scores 472 and Chrome and Chromium score 512. Poor old Opera scores 392 as, for some reason, does opera Next.
Edit: The version of Konqueror I have (4.14.2) scores 385.

Chrome, purely for for Flash support - which, unfortunately, is still used heavily in my line of work (online gaming).

Once more sites start embracing HTML5 capabilities, I'll happily switch back to open source Chromium

Are there a lot of sites which require the latest version of Flash to run so won't work in Firefox then? I don't use Flash much so I've not been paying attention.

They'll usually work, but if there are issues, good luck getting support when running Flash 11.2. My company develops Flashless games, which is a step in the right direction, but the sites that use them also use games which requires flash.

I guess to vote I have first to post.

After having been a Mosaic, Netscape, (lynx), Mozilla and Firefox user I am now an happy Palemoon user. For the main reason I did not like at all nor Australis nor the way this has been forced onto users.

Amen brother. That is the kind of heavy handed shove-it-down-your-throat antics that Microsoft pulls. This is the new interface and we don't care if you like it or not.

Australis was the straw that broke the camels back for me, and I moved to Pale Moon.

Web browser controlled by the user, not vice-versa

Otter Browser, project aiming to recreate classic Opera (12.x) UI using Qt5.
Interesting. Will it actually use Presto rendering engine?

Why do you separate iceweasel from firefox? they are same, except few things.
Voting for firefox, but in fact using iceweasel.

That's a sore point for me as I have been known to exchange harsh words on the subject. Suffice it to say that I think there are valid reasons for treating them as separate browsers while also acknowledging that they are sometimes almost identical.

Yes, they are almost identical, so i think, that they should be grouped together, like in 2013.
