Best Browser?

This was junking up the Suggestion Thread, so I'd like to move the discussion over here.

So, what is the best browser, and why?

Personally, I like Firefox, because it's faster than IE, and the wide range of extensions makes it totally customizable. Also, some of those extensions include security options like NoScript to make your browsing experience more secure than ever.

The only problem is that all these extensions can make Firefox run slow on lower-end computers, but who uses a lower-end computer anymore these days?

Opera is great and has extensions, but not enough to make me switch, and I hear it has a few security issues. Chrome records everything you do and sends that data back to Google, and since I like my privacy, I don't use Chrome. IE is just a mess, so...Firefox it is!

Firefox. I never actually mess with the custom stuff but it works fast, has tabs, let's you save tabs when your computer logs you off for some reason and other stuff.

I almost tried Chrome, but then I read about all the privacy issues and decided against installing it. I just don't like the idea that a browser can record everything I do and send it back to its parent company. The thought just creeps me out.

Ausden is an unknown quantity at this point

Well unless your looking at things you shouldn't be, who cares what is recorded?

I personally prefer Firefox for security and add-on reason. But I use Chrome when my Firefox is acting up or when I want to watch walkthroughs via youtube. I tend to enjoy the play of videos on Chrome over Firefox.

IE is just the biggest waste of a program ever created. The most unstable, unsecured browser to date.

So you don't mind telling everyone exactly what you're doing at all times? And who's to decide what I should and shouldn't look at?

I don't want to be profiled by anyone.

EDIT: Some of you are voting in the thread, but not in the poll.
