Mozilla Firefox

"Take back the web". What can I say, it's the best browser out there. IE isn't even a contender, even ignoring the fact that it's tied to a sub-standard operating system. Opera is nice - it runs beautifully on my Nokia 770 Internet Tablet and other low-end systems, but lacks the customizability of Mozilla Firefox. And plus, Mozilla was a true open source pioneer.

If you're here, you probably already know how great Firefox is - standards-complaint, F/OSS, lots of extensions (and you can write your own), secure, AND the session restore feature.


The only real issues that I've had with Firefox (aside from the memory leaks associated with running 38 extensions) stem from the fact that my laptop is an AMD64, running a full 64-bit version of openSuSE. It took a bit of tweaking, but I finally got Flash to work (who knows how I did it).


Having done as much web development as I have, along with many other things, I've customized my Firefox installation quite a bit. Admittedly, I've had some issues keeping those customizations across different machines, though mainly I just use my laptop.
