Firefox mainly.
But do a lot of testing in both I.E and Safari.

Safari then Firefox. IE for testing.

Safari on OS X and Firefox (much slower) as a back-up.

Firefox until recently. I just switched to Flock, though. It seems to load faster, supports Firefox extensions, and has some pretty interesting features.

Well, that's a list!
Which one do you use for what purpose? I don't know wat to do with all those browsers?!

Generally the firefoxes for google reader except for media-heavy sites which in case usually Opera. Rarely open more than ~50 tabs in FX, hardly ever >100.
Almost all youtube are watched offline with KMPlayer after being saved from firefox (downloadhelper)

With feeds that offer little more than a headline in the feed but I want to read them all, tend to use Opera to open all 40-100+ links at once (ctrl+j), sometimes in maxthon (alt+l)
Ditto for forums I frequent , open all newposts at once.
As a result, often have a few windows open in Opera with 25-100 tabs each. In Maxthon , self-imposed (as in set it myself) limit of 400 tabs, so that Windows itself wouldn't run out of resources (GDI & handles, not memory); Sometimes with special cases, temporarily increase the limit if I want to open a 4-digit number of tabs.

If using a less-than-modern windows machine (< Pentium III / 256MB RAM), the firefoxes with their extensions ( 38 in, 36 in 3.0a8pre ) are out the question.

Most of the other ones are just for fun, so much so than none of the x86 browser are even installed on 486DX4 /w Windows 3.11 nor on 286 /w MS-DOS 4.0.

The 8-bit browser/server (Contiki) a few times a decade on real hardware (C64 or C128), the 3 Amiga a few times a year on real hardware, otherwise all 4 tend to be used more on emulators.

Safari 3, mostly, then Camino, Firefox, and Opera sometimes.

I wish Firefox behaved better on the Mac.

cschack's avatar

Camino. Great little browser. (I use Firefox on occasion for bank stuff and the like.)

Vincentt's avatar

Firefox, and sometimes Epiphany.
