Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Meh poll needs more options. I'll take Safari or Chrome as top choices. Next would be Firefox or the Alpha Opera (Opera 9.64 is not fast, it's the new 10.00 one that is, 9.64 gets outstripped by firefox in terms of speed).

What's that information based on? At least in pwn2own where people were paid for successfully exploiting a browser it was Chrome that came out as the most secure.

Technically, I can't vote.

I use IE 8 for MSN sites, and Fx 3.5b4pre (Shiretoko) and 3.6a1 (Minefield) as my browsers....

Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit
Opera 10.5

I have only seen reference really to older versions of Opera I am running 10.10 but there is a version 10.5 that is pre-alpha and looks very good in the speed department

I use Opera as my main browser as it has everything I need right in my browser like built in e-mail client,built in bit torrent client has Opera Turbo to help speed up browsing on dial up or low tier high speed internet I find Opera's use of tabs and speed dial to be flawless a top notch browser in my opinion and I think one reason they have low market share is a lot of people don't know about it a lot of computer users don't even know that there is anything other than IE it's pretty funny actually.

anyway check out the link below for more info on Opera 10.5

Opera 10.5 Pre-Alpha is All About Speed (and Private Browsing) - Opera 10.5 - Lifehacker

Windows 7 Home Premium

I use Firefox 3.6 Beta 5, it's really fast and my add-ons work well. It's also pretty stable as I've never had a crash with it like I have quite a few times in 3.5.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

Firefox, but to be completely fair, I haven't even attempted to use IE for years.

The others i have tried briefly, but fall back to FF simply because i'm comfortable with it and like some of its add-ons.
