    I have always used IE, but gave Opera a try and kinda like it now. Don't wanna pay $40 for it though, may have to find a "friendly version" :wiggle:

    Opera for me all the way. I've fallen in love with mouse gestures and tabbed windows. I run at a high res (1280x1024) so I don't even notice the ad. I'm not even sure how much space you would gain back by removing the ad.

    I had to go look up refspoof - hadn't heard of it and was curious of what it did. Thats pretty sweet.

    I'm a big fan of the Gecko based browsers (Mozilla, Firebird, Ghostzilla, etc).

    Lots of addons for these browsers. Finally a browser which is cross-platform friendly AND produces pages the same across platforms. The commitment to W3C standards is nice to see too (especially from a web dev standpoint).

    I respect Opera and I have it installed, but I don't use it every day.

    Thumbs up to Safari (and Konquerer for which it is based off of). Although, I've seen it botch up CSS/DHTML renderings which Mozilla on the Mac handled without problems. But I chalk this up to Safari still being pretty new.

    Lynx also rocks. You can do some cool web tricks with it if you're in a pinch. And yes, every now and then I'll SSH/Telnet to my web server and fire up a lynx browser to wiggle around firewalls.

    What browser type? The kind that let me connect to that intarweb thing just like AOL!!

    Seriously, I don't really have a preference. When in windows, I do IE, when in linux or bsd (and I actually bother to start X) I use konqueror, or mozilla. When I'm kickin it CLI style, I use lynx. On my old DOS laptop, I use arachne. Overall, I like konqueror for its IE-like speed, built in anti-popup features, tabbed browsing and the ability to put the address bar on the same line as the buttons.

    Lynx actually takes a very active roll for the visually impared. There's some add ons for IE to handle text to speach, but when it comes to ripping text off a web page, Lynx does an awesome job (it strips out all the extra HTML/CSS/DHTML junk and leaves just the good stuff).

    Lynx also rocks when it comes time for a web dev to check/test a site's functionality for the visually impared. If its difficult to navigate in Lynx, then its going to be difficult for the visually impared.
