With all the web browsers competing, which one do you use MOST?

Firefox. It's fast, safe, has good plug-in support, and there are lots of themes and add-ons to customize it to your needs. I also use Firefox because IE contains a memory leak in my PC. The only problems I have with Firefox is that it takes longer to load it up, and doesn't handle history very well because I store to much of it...

Either Safari, Firefox (with Cooliris, Autopager and Chromifox), IE7 or Chrome. To be honest probably Firefox.

I'm not a "fan" of any browser.

I use Firefox because of Ad-Block.

Firefox - largely for the plugins.

I do use IE as a backup browser, though.

A few years ago, I used Opera as my primary browser. Then I switched to Firefox and haven't looked back since. Chrome is nice, though I would wait until it matures enough before considering it as a serious primary browser.

Firefox mainly because it isn't full of holes and flaws. Tons of plugin support too, however, once Chrome has a great amount of plugins available for it, it may be a tough competition.

Google Chrome. I find Firefox to be big and bulky, and I have no use for any of the plugins.

I'm using IE8 most of the time. Sometimes I'm also using Firefox, especially for sites which aren't displayed correctly in IE.
For me IE is starting up much faster than Firefox.

But I like both browsers. :P

I use Firefox(Although, I write now with IE). For me he is more secure. There's also a lot of interesting plugins.

Wow...I'm the only one that voted for Safari? :o

I do have to admit though when I use Windows, the first browser I choose, when given the option to, is Mozilla Firefox. After that, Google Chrome, and then Internet Explorer. Opera I've never really enjoyed using, except on my Nintendo Wii. :)

I just tried out Safari 4 and I had very negative views of the beta.

Tabs are like chrome but uglier and harder to use
Most visited page is just a 3d version of the one on Chrome.
It runs slower than chrome (on my computer that is, it is beta but so is my version of Chrome)
Less add-ons than Firefox
Less of the "everything" that comes packaged with Opera

In all I think Webkit is great, Safari is lacking.

EDIT: I just noticed this article on Lifehacker and it seems safari 4 is just in the middle even.
