If you use Windows or Mac, get out.

Poll: What browser do you use?

I use the open source Chromium (Open source version of Chrome) from Ubuntu Software Center.

Chromium's great because it's fast and lightweight.

I can't stand it though. It doesn't have FF's awesome bar or FF's live bookmarks. Plus it's hard to get used to a new set of plugins. So I stick with FF even though it can be slow.

I use Links a lot too. It's text-based so I can surf the web at work at it looks like I'm doing work stuff.

Yeah I used to use FF but it seems that the newer versions are getting slower.

But no, Chromium is not light weight. It uses almost 2 times as much RAM as FF and 4 times as much as IE9

I use Firefox for work, Chromium for personal.

I've used lynx before, it's crazy fast, but... yeah.

Right now, Firefox and Chrome are very very close to each other in speed. It just depends on what type of operation you are working with.

Firefox. I'm loyal to Mozilla and what they stand for.
