Whichever one you are most comfortable with and does what you want it to do.

For me it is Firefox 7.0 in the nightly builds with a Firefox 5 backup. It has been rock solid. IE9 was too slow for me.

Probably IE9 since your avatar says Hotmail, and your sig says Bing.

Don't use IE9. It's not all that good compared to some of the other browsers out there. And although you look like a Microsoft fan, you should still probably choose Firefox. If you don't like FF, then Google Chrome and Opera are also good... but personally, Firefox is great.
