    I use Firefox for web development so much I haven't spent a lot of time with the others. Opera is very good but the interface is different enough. I, too, like Epiphany on FreeBSD.

    I prefer Opera; on Linux at home, on Windows XP at work, and on my mobile phone. Firefox and Safari are also good browsers, but Opera is my first choice.

    I usually use Firefox on my PC and Mac both. I also have Opera installed on both, plus Safari on my Mac. Opera and Safari are both very good browsers, but I simply don't have time to experiment with all three; there are so many little differences, with a continuing rain of upgrades, add-ons, etc.

    Firefox has been widely criticized as a memory hog, and that's certainly true on my PC. I believe Opera is or was considered the fastest browser.

    Opera for everyday needs, and FF for development. Give me Firebug for Opera and I'll drop FF for good.

    Opera, hands down. Though I do have Internet Explorer 5.01-7 (5.01-6 via standalones), Netscape 6-9, K-Meleon 1.0, Firefox (latest build), and Safari 3 Beta (Windows) as well. But all those browsers are just used for development and testing.

    Fifefox, I wouldn't dream of going back to IE after trying out Firefox.

    I don't really have a preference. IE 7 works fine for me as does FF 2.

    At home I use Firefox. At work whatever browser is the default browser on the computer I am using (usually IE7). I gave Opera a try following a recent thread but didn't like it at all sorry to say. I found it almost counter intuitive.

    You're not the first one to say that. Could you elaborate a bit? What is it about Opera that you find counter intuitive?

    I'm just curious, because I don't see Opera doing anything different from other browsers (except when it comes to keyboard navigation). I've used Opera for so long now, that I may have become blind to any discrepancies, though.

    I don't think it's counter-intuitive. I think it's just slightly different, but what it does different is not bad or wrong; it's just slightly different. So slight that I couldn't tell you right now but I don't see the difference as being a hindrance either. Opera is an excellent browser.

    For some reason, FF seem to be less and less stable for each update, but I've grown dependent on Firebug. It's one of those things where I wonder how I was able to do development without it before it was released

    I use Opera for home, as I'm totally plugged into all the feature settings (RSS, email), and especially the customised look and feel (i.e mouse guestures/keyboard shortcuts). For work, I use FF.

    I have found when recomending Opera to friends that they become easily frustrated during the 'bedding-in' period. I think, that there is a certain period after first install when the cache causes all sorts of little problems, though I've never been able to pin it down to anything more detailed. It just appears really buggy, but soon enough it seems to settle down :S

    I agree with Tommy, and would also encourage you to tell us what you think Opera's specific faults are Mobyme, It would certainly help me when considering a recomendation to friends about what would best suit their needs.

    Not as secure as Opera though. Let me put it to you this way. Internet Explorer is like a payday loan store. Firefox is like a bank. Opera is therefore the equivilant of Fort Knox.

    <facetious>Opera. It's even more secure and you don't need addons because it's already got everything. </facetious>

    Opera is my favourite, Firefox is the second.
