WebKit may be taking everything over, and I may soon find myself to be a dhimmi second class Firefox citizen, but I will never jump.

Never. Never will I give into that Robot icon's empire. Shall stay true to Firefox and the memories of the Spring/Summer of 2008. Hardcore Mozillan to the last day.

I used firefox and opera before, but switched from opera to vivaldi after they went too minimalistic

I use Firefox for the most part, but also dabble in Chromium/Chrome.

As to Browser Of The Year -- I'm just glad I can now vote Firefox as a Debian user!
Long-live the spirit of Iceweasel and long-live the Iceweasel team but I am glad of this.
I had some issues with LQ on Opera a couple of years ago. That was the main reason I stopped using Opera.

Voted Chromium, since it's what I use on my more powerful computers. Also use Opera on less powerful computers and Midori on old hardware.

I voted for Qupzilla, but I like Otter equally much.
@audriusk: In case you don't know, the goal of Otter browser is to provide the best features and the great usability of Opera 12.

I'm aware of Otter Browser and it's great that such project exists, but I'm just too content with Firefox (and lazy as well ) to try out another browser.

On my i7 machine, I use Firefox for anything it will work for, and try to keep it to 40 tabs or less. On my 8-year-old laptop, it's still Firefox, but no more than 8 tabs. Only when I have trouble do I pull up something else, like Konqueror, and that's seldom.

Otter, when I can get it to work, which isn't too often.
I voted Palemoon; I use it on resource-challenged netbooks pretty much exclusively.
Opera is FANTASTIC--if you've got plenty of RAM, and a decent CPU. Which I do on my Acer i5-3317u based notebook. Palemoon or Qupzilla as a backup, as when some POS website tells me to naff off unless I turn off my (built-in) adblock software.

I think you need to expand upon this. Do you mean as opposed to most browsers which send your real IP to the site being viewed so that the information can be sent back to your real IP?

yeah I should clarified. while using a vpn the last time I used chrome there was no way prevent webrtc from leaking your real ip address to any site that requested it. in firefox, there's a flag you can disable to prevent this. why webrtc is still a thing I have no idea. if people wanted to video chat, they would use a proper video chatting application.
