    I've always used Opera and it gets better with every release. Quite suprised it's actually beating Firefox though.

    Firefox. Don't really like Opera, although Opera for mobile phones and other handheld devices is awesome. And sometimes I use Lynx. 8)

    One trick I just learnt is installing user JS (java script). Which let's you use stuff like a spell checker and increasing text box sizes:

    There's a video on how to install UserJS, and here's the spellchecker I use:

    Pretty much like IE7 but with a bunch of new bells, whistles, security features, etc.
    Still a few bugs in it but it's seems quite stable. I've not had it crash on me yet.
