Opera has my vote. FF takes up waaay too much memory and CPU.
Besides, it looks as if Firefox is copying Opera's features with each new release. I wish Opera had good add-on's like Firefox does though...but I really can't bear FF's inefficiency.

i think its funny that no one voted for safari. i don't like safari much. firefox does the job for me

firefox is safer, it is not the target of so many hackers as Internet Explorer. I also like the tab browsing. If you want, you can set it up so when you close the browser, a window will show asking you if you want to erase everything for security reasons. In Internet Explorer you have to go to Internet Options and click of erase history and cookies. It is faster and more convenient in Firefox.

For another, the thousands of plugins for firefox, I dont think I could live without my plugins.

Was gonna vote IE, then ...

I remembered all of the viruses and quirks. So, cast my vote for Firefox. And, as it turns out, so did lots of others too!

I just voted too - for Safari. For three reasons
  1. While it feels complete rubbish on Windows, on the Mac it's actually quite nice
  2. I don't particularly like any of the alternatives
  3. No-one else had voted for it, and I felt sorry for it Smilie

I have voted for firefox and I love it because I like its add-ons and no virus and reliable performance and so on. I feel flexible when compare to other browsers.
