i mainly use firefox, but just today i found a mozilla side project called "minefield". its still in its beta version but its really nice (so far) and may become my new browser; windows recognizes it as firefox in task manager and when you click firefox while minefield is open, it will open another minefield window....
list of installed browsers:
Firefox 3.6 beta 1
Minefield 3.7alpha1 pre (its supposed to be what firefox 3.7 is going to be like)
Internet Explorer 8 (i think, i never touch it)
i use firefox for its customization. i like that i can add themes ("personas" in 3.6 and minefield). i like that its add-ons are easy to install, and you can pretty much make it do whatever you want. if you need your browser to block ads, snipe bids on ebay, give you premium IMDB info without paying, and tell you the scores of your teams games without having to search for hours on how to do it; firefox is for you. i may consider using opera if i could get an ad-blocker to work, but so far i havent (and ive tried a LOT). i dont like google much (other than their search engine every once in awhile) so i stay away from chrome. safari eats up too much memory and isnt customizable on windows. i have IE simply because windows doesnt work right without it. i have K-Meleon because its fast and lite, if i want to search for something fast, it will open within a second and i can find my info (integrates with some firefox add-ons and comes with ad/flash blocker preinstalled).
some great add-ons for firefox:
AdBlock Plus: blocks ads
Flash Block: blocks flash (gets the flash ads that ABP doesnt)
Download Statusbar: puts your downloads above your status bar instead of in a window, handy
DownloadHelper: lets you download movies off of youtube etc.
FastestFox: it does a LOT, not much it doesnt do, just read the description on mozillas site
FireDownload: speeds up your downloading using multiple sources
Hyperwords: highlight something, right click it, and get a list of options: search, reference, translate, shop, share, view.
ImageZoom: a zoom feature for JUST images: right click on an image and scroll to zoom in or out
Nightly Tester Tools: over-rides compatibility so if an add-on is outdated when you install a new version of firefox, you can make it work
SkipScreen: if you use sites like "megaupload" or whatever that make you wait for your downloads, skipscreen gets you passed all the ads and sometimes passed the wait times
NoScript: blocks scripts, good security measure though can get a bit irritating
WOT (web of trust): rates sites and lets you rate them.. you can see what theyre rated by a color-coded symbol that shows up on the site youre on plus in search engines to let you know before you get there (also blocks from accessing terrible sites, though you can bypass it)
XSS Me: cross site script blocker, another nice security feature...
theres loads more you can get, it all depends on what you want to do with the browser....
