    Steam:

    Post your preferred browser + addons and explain why it's inferior to Firefox the absolute best.
    + Couldn't crash it if I tried
    + Runs smoothly after minor tweaks
    + Open source (no NSA here)
    + Isn't Internet Exploder
    - Depending on your computer, uses a lot of memory
    - Slow on toasters (cheap laptops, boxes still running XP)

    Addons:
    Greasemonkey
    Adblock Edge (Fanboy's List)
    FxIF
    Flagfox
    NoScript
    I'm told RightToClick is really useful, haven't tried it.

    Greasemonkey scripts: MayhemYDG's 4chan X
    For more addons and useful about:config mods, see logicalincrements.
    Themes are for plebs.

    I use Safari since it's the default for my Macbook. Honestly I couldn't give less of a shit about fine-tuning my browser (or what type I use in general). As long as it gets me to the page I want with no trouble, that's fine by me.

    Only good thing about Internet Explorer is that you can download Google Chrome off of it

    Steam:

    I like Firefox and Chrome, currently using FF but may switch back over because FF seems to crash on me lately (could be the bad habit of having 6-12 tabs up at once).

    Chrome
    Firefox
    Safari
    IE(because my school chooses to support IE ahead of Chrome/Firefox, so sometimes things are broken on Chrome/FF)

    For Chrome:
    +Runs good on my computer, doesn't use too much memory
    +I like the look of it, plus it makes it easy to remove toolbars and things that get bundled in downloads
    +Circle logo good
    +Gmail and Youtube right there where I need it
    -Google
    - NSA
    - Less customization
    Firefox:
    +Open source
    +Adblock
    +Simple
    -No more secure than other browsers. :(
    - Too simple
    -Memory hog. I run Windows 7, can run Skyrim on shiny graphics without a problem but Firefox does terrible at managing the memory.
    -NSA

    Safari:
    +Works better than IE
    +Easy to use with Itunes
    - Apple
    - NSA

    IE:
    + It opens the internet
    = Is often the most-supported browser for school
    - IE
    - Microsoft
    - Crashes
    - NSA

    I personally think IE is doing a lot better. I still use Firefox over IE, but thats because I want to do more than just browse the internet.

    Steam:

    The latest build of IE isn't really that bad, per se.
    It's just the fact that older builds were horrible, so everyone used alternate browsers, resulting in this kind of mentality:
    I don't personally use it, but if all the other browsers ever blew up for some reason, I'd have no problem using it.
