Why don't you just install them all configure them and then use as you would normally and then decide which one serves your surfing style the best. Frankly they're all down to personal preference. I prefer Firefox because of it's customization abilities. So it's really up to what you want in your browser and what you do online the most.

Windows 10 64 bit

I mainly use I.E.9 (with tracking protection enabled). But I also have Firefox and probably use it about 30% of the time. I had Chrome on my old PC and didn't see any need for that as it seemed to mimic I.E.9 (acted the exact same way as I.E.9 on all sites).

I love Mozilla but chrome is faster, I think.

Firefox seems to be the most customizable out of the lot, and there are add-ons which I have to block tracking. I use Comodo Dragon (built on Chrome) as my second, it is about 30% faster than FF. IE only gets used if there are things that the others wont display seeing as IE displays everything, even the stuff you don't want to see and it's the slowest of the lot.

Just messing with Opera at the moment, it could end up being my second choice if I can customize the bookmarks bar like in FF and Chrome, it's definitely the fastest.

Windows 7 Ultimate

Chrome for me then FF. Both have the add-on IE Tab, so I don't ever even open IE anymore. I do like Maxthon too, and use that from time to time to try the new versions since they release one a week it seems.

The only thing preventing me from using Chrome is the text. I've tried fiddling with the font sizes and cleartype, is there any way to make the text look like Firefox, on Chrome Stable, Beta and Dev it looks weird and hard to read.
