What browser do you all use? I use firefox because I find it tends to render pages the best of all browsers out there.

Firefox (Namoroka 3.6.15pre) because like Paolo, I use a lot of add-ons. I also had the same problem as Agust with FF4 and ecomorph so I stick to Fancy Dark with AL-Luxe-Bodhi with FF4.

FF4 has given me the odd issue here and there.
FF3 is tried and tested, and does exactly what a browser needs to do, but its like loading a hunk of metal to the top of the building as its very "heavy feeling"

In Chrome I trust. (Googles version, not Chromium as this is left behind now)
Developed by the most innovative company in my life time, they are releasing updates so regulary, the support for scripts and addons has grown so fast, and the stable design of it makes it a must for me. Its based on Webkit engine which has some of the biggest names in electronics/IT behind it.

If all my addons are finally ported to FF4, then I'll be using FF again...

For now i use the dev version of Chromium...stable and blazing fast (at least for me...)

I would go for Firefox 4, but it almost seems like we won't have a stable release for quite some time. I voted for Midori since it is just as fast, if not faster in some instances than Chromium. Moreover, I've always had "hanging" issues with Chromium.

Seamonkey Internet suite. It's a lightweight all purpose browser.

I use Firefox. The beta on Bodhi and 3.6.x on my main desktop (which will probably run Bodhi when - and if - x64 is released).
Will try to adopt to Midori when RC3 goes public.

Trust me when I say that is only a 'when'. Might be a bit further off since Bodhi 64bit is a 100% custom built distro, but it will come eventually :)

I hope so! I am very thrilled about reading Mark's thread about the developement. I wish I had the know-how and patience to do something like that!

Anyone tried the EVE browser?
http://trac.enlighte....org/e/wiki/Eve
It would be interesting to have all major things EFL-based and to reduce "external" dependencies (like gtk for midori) to non-core packages.

Yes, I just did. It's unusable. It will not resize vertically. It won't even close, for goodness sake!

The last change on Trac was eight months ago.

Firefox 5.

Previously Firefox 4, just updated to 5.
Plugins reason. Better since menu bar is hide-able

5 is just 4 with some improvement

Eve is a nice browser! It just doesn't work right at the moment like Jeff says. Too bad, 'cause it would be really nice to have as little external dependencies as possible. But yeah, I could also say that about more default programs in Bodhi. For example, Ephoto is really shaping up the last few days so it could be made the default photo viewer (it even supports PSD!).

But anyways, I use a variety of browsers. I never stick to one. I always switch after a few months. At the moment, I'm using Chromium again, but who knows what I'll be using in 2 months... Maybe Firefox again, maybe Opera again, maybe Konqueror again, maybe a nice EFL-browser? We'll see.
