(on pc) Opera - 'cuz it's freakin' fast. Ability to tightly control cookies, good pop-up blocker, good built in RSS reader, ability to sync bookmarks across computers.

(on Mac) Safari or Opera - I go back and forth. Opera is touch faster, but has some issues with some websites that Safari doesn't. I love the Reader feature in Safari and the RSS reader is the best IMO.

Firefox at home and work just because I've used it for a long time now. I've been meaning to give chrome a shot, just haven't downloaded it yet.

Safari and it works fine for me - I am simple and really see not a diff tween Firefox, Mozilla, Safari or IE - They all work fine for me but Safari on the iMac and iPad is what I use and IE on the work laptop

IE. Easier to use one for main browsing especially if I go to a site which doesnt like firefox. Have firefox also.

Have Opera and Safari on a test rig just to play around with.

Flash heavy sites sometimes gives it fits and doesnt put things where they should be. Not as bad as it used to be though. My old 401K investment website (when i was back with Orkin) would never work with ff.

I just personally prefer IE anyways. Nothing really wrong with the others (except Safari being an crapple product).
