    Firefox keeps on working well for me and it has just the right add-ons and extensions, so it would be very hard to ever give it up.

    On the other hand, I've tried Chromium a number of times but can't get used to the look or layout, so have never liked it. That's not to say my opinion on it won't change at some point in the future, though. Opera was my default browser for many years, but from version 4.x and forward, it didn't appeal to me at all.

    Why include Chromium, and not Chrome? Odd exclusion.

    Mainly because Chrome is the actual OS, while Chromium is the browser.

    I think...

    Iceweasel on my latest resurrected computer (today's experiment), since it came with Debian.

    On my main fedora box, I use Firefox.

    On the go I use Opera Mobile (on Adam Tablet with Honeycomb, is only browser that will work with Flash. Or at least it was when I upgraded a couple weeks ago, they might have expanded that now)

    I selected "Other" because I mainly use iceweasel (which is very like, but technically not, Firefox) though I sometimes use Chrome.

    Chromium I like the speed and it does what I need.

    I use graphical Links (sometimes called xlinks) almost all the time now. It's not pretty, it mangles web pages and it won't do JavaScript. But it's so blindingly fast, I could forgive it anything. You click and there's your web page. And no ads!!

    I am lazy, so I use whatever is the default. I'm using Ubuntu and
    that means Firefox. Occasionally I experiment, but once a browser
    is tweaked for my personal preferences, I hate to change. I get
    used to how things look from my favorite browser.

    Firefox - but there is one web site that I visit quite often that crashes Firefox immediately I try to open it. It works fine under Chrome.
