I use firefox. Why? Because its the first thing I tried once IE finally made me vomit and I loved it. I should try some other browsers I guess.

I love the tabbed browsing, I love the plugins available and it's never failed me when surfing these forums or while looking at porn. And lets be honest, what else do we need the internet for? =P

Almost OT: My absolute favorite Firefox Plugin is the one that captures streamed vids and lets you save them to your HDD. That rocks.

The proxy plugin is very nice, too. That's just about the only thing I use Firefox for.

FireFox. I've not used IE since before 1999. I had an IE modded browser called CrazyBrowser. One of the earliest ones experimenting with tabs. Wonderfull. FireFox today is mainly superior thanks to the plugins. Scriptstoper is awsome. Not only does it stop bogus shit on webbpages, it actually removes much advertisment scripts that webbpages use and I've not seen a pop-up ever since I started using it.

I use Mozilla Firefox 'cause I think it's the best browser. I have tested konqueror, IE (old and 7beta), Opera..... but none of them was so good as Firefox. Maybe if I had a mac I would use safari, but firefox is the pwnage

Here's a little video for all of you. This really shows why firefox r0x ;)

I think Opera is the easiest to use. That's one reason why I use it. :E

And no reasonable person would use lynx if they had a choice other than to say on forums that they use lynx.

Don't know how to explain it, but Firefox' rendering just feels faster, compared to IE and Opera. Must be a subjective thing.

I use it regularly for testing things over ssh in the command line and for testing websites to see how Google and screen readers handle the page.

Yes, you're not reasonable; you're a web developer.
