Firefox/Mozilla. I can’t stand other browsers.

Firefox – add-ons, ad blockers, customization options, stability, web standards

Yea i second that. IE is horrible id rather not use the internet then have to suffer with that damn browser.

To paraphrase Gary Larson,“They told me I was a free-range Web browser, and I downloaded Firefox and never looked back.” I am always happy to escape the clutches of the collective—not this one—the Borgian Microsoft one.

Firefox for developing, but safari has some shweet CSS tools built in, you just have to know how to turn them on.

Firefox. And, just in case you run into a site that wont run properly even with FireFox emulating IE, have IE installed.

Safari is great on a Mac but somehow, I don’t really like it on the PC just yet.

Firefox. The name itself should give it away!

Safari is my first choice and have firefox as backup. I haven’t had IE installed since Safari first appeared.

Safari on Windows isn’t that great; so i prefer Firefox.

Firefox (or Opera because I have a soft spot for it).
Both are W3C standards compliant. Firefox is developed by a community of talented people and the product is also much more secure than IE. There are a plethora of add-ons available to enhance F-Fox’s functionality as well.

Using WebKit is pretty much a no-brainer. It gets 100/100 on Acid3.
