I like firefox but the footprint is large for me but I use between 20-30 addons regularly...
But its because of addons that I like it too lol so I'm not complaining.

I like chrome as well but it's too light, it lacks addons that I want

I use Firefox day in/day out for most things. I also have Chrome running at the same time.
I love Firefox for it's extensibility. I've found Chrome equivalents to most of the add-ons I use so both get a workout.
I use IE now and then and Safari now and then. K-Meleon is always on my system as well.

Chrome's new "OneTab" is rather excellent, use Chrome due to gmail account, got another three, IE, Firefox and Opera, but Chrome is growing on me.

For a very long time now I have been using PaleMoon, which is a slimmed down version of Firefox. It accepts most of Firefox's addons (in particular AdblockPlus, Ghosterie and Firebug) and works brilliantly with LastPass and many others. It is supposed to be Firefox with many features disbled but I have found nothing missing that I need and it is very fast due to being so slim.

I have been a loyal and dedicated and outspoken 'fanboy' of Firefox for years. I've used other browsers, but have always gone back to Firefox.

However, over the past couple of months, I find myself using Chrome more and more. It loads so much faster and general browsing speed is so much faster. I have so many add-ons on Firefox and have had them for so long that some of them I no longer remember even why I have them.

I can't say that I've totally given up on Firefox, but I'm certainly using it less and less. It almost feels heretical for me to even type what I've typed, I've been a fan of Firefox for so long. But, I have to be honest and say that, for me, I'm liking Chrome more and more.

Firefox it has been for quite a long time...I've used Chrome, but I've always come back to Firefox (probably I'm too old fashioned or stubborn or something.)...I also use Opera as a second browser sometimes

Opera still works best for me - although I realise that changes needed to be made and agree to a large extent, I'm beginning to feel slightly uneasy about the shift to WebKit. Hope the switch doesn't turn out to be too painful.

I've always kind of wondered why Opera doesn't have a bigger following. I guess it just doesn't have the open-source cachet of Firefox or the marketing muscle of Google, nor the bundling of IE.

It's always sad to see the loss of a good from-the-ground-up alternative, but I think it's smart of Opera to adopt Blink (Webkit fork) that will also be used by Chrome. It'll make it easier for Opera to keep up with the competition.
