    firebird has seemed a little bloated to me lately, i recently have started using epiphany, i like it's daemon feature, it greatly improves program loading time

    I mainly use Mozilla in Linux, occasionally Konqueror, or Opera. Both are good in their own right, but I prefer Mozilla.

    I think the best is Mozilla. I like its philosophy and how it works. And the tabbed browsing is something maravellous.

    Galeon

    I'm with you on this Dizzybacon - for speed, ease of use, and useful features, Galeon's the best browser I've tried.
    Firebird's not far behind though.

    Let's see....
    Don't like Netscape, used to like Opera but don't anymore.

    In order of preference:
    Konqueror
    Mozilla
    Galeon
    Lynx
    XBrowser
    Nautilus

    I'll give w3m a try.

    Mozilla Firebird & Konqueror

    Love Mozilla Firebird because:
    - tab browsing
    - Google search toolbar
    - fast and simple

    and Konqueror because:
    - tab browsing
    - split windows
    - already open when I'm browsing my harddrive and want to go to the web.

    I have been using Firebird since .5 release, but as mm-sources stated, it has seemed a bit bloated as of late. May have to try out epiphany.

    I used mozilla since 1.0rc1
    I have recently installed firebird and I use both regularly.
    I tried Galeon and really liked it, in fact if it wasn't for some sily bugs annoying me it would be my browser of choice (It won't save some of my preferences to do with tab behaviour mainly, RH9 default Galeon which shipped with it) I should get the latest version but Mozilla and Firebird are working fine so never saw a need.

    I cant STAND Konqueror for web browsing, phrases the pages all wrong.

    Personaly I love firebird, I use it on both windows and linux. I love tabbed browsers, I couldnt live without them (or atleast use my pc ), but there is something that I dont like to much about it but its better than most other browsers out there so I use it.

    I primarily like firebird the best but it has some issues. The only other browser I have on my machine is konqueror which I would probably like a lot better if it did a half-decent job of stopping pop-ups. Split screen is great though!

    I used to run mozilla in Mandrake but it was way too bloated and slow IMHO.

    Firebird. It really is a must try. Best browser I have used in a long time period. I use thunderbird for email.

    I usually just use whatever is the default for the distro. but when I have to choose I install glinks. (Its a text browser with graphics support for X. kind of a hybrid)

    Started using the new Moz build 1.6 (final) and I'll have to say I like it. Been running it for almost two weeks now and not a glitch one. Still waiting for an xft build though. I dont care what others say....I still like the intergrated mail client.

    I personally use Mozilla and Mozilla Firebird. I love both of these browsers because of the tabbed browsing, excellent cookie management, and image managment. I like firebird better because it loads faster, and has the google searchbar. As an added bonus, mozilla is not suseptible to false location bar addresses, unlike some inferior products.

    Worth noting that the recently released version of Konqueror has some good improvements, particularly in usability. Tabbed browsing isn't tacked on anymore, and the context menus have been shaved down quite a bit. A number of rendering issues have been resolved, too. Foxfire (the new name of Phoenix) is excellent, but with the new updates to Konqueror and its excellent integration with the rest of KDE, it's become my default.

    When working on a GNOME box, though, Epiphany is a beautiful thing!
