Best browser for Windows 7?

What'sss the best browser for Windows 7? And if it's Firefox, which version? I use Chrome but it crashes WAY too much.

You'll get a lot of varying opinions here.

Firefox is the best for my own purposes. I'm an add on junkie, and I have yet to see the variety and quality of the add ons replicated in any other browser ecosystem. (I use Noscript, AdBlock Plus on certain sites, and Ghostery as a selection of my addons)

So get Firefox if add-ons really matter to you... 13.01 is the latest stable version i believe.

My experience says, the best one is Waterfox The fastest 64-Bit variant of Firefox!

Do all of the default Firefox addons work with Waterfox in 64bit?

This is the only thing stopping me from considering moving up to it.

Yes. All that I tried till date.

Undoubtedly the best. I have tried all the browsers available.

I use Internet Explorer. No browser is perfect. I suggest you try Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer and choose the browser that works best for you.

How is update mechanism like, does it follow the normal Firefox routine schedules?

EDIT:- Seems like its kept updated pretty frequently, that's great...
