    Epiphany wins hands down every time for me.

    IE sucks of course cause it is windows based for a start, Firefox is so Resource intensive and suffers from flash issues.
    Opera is good i must admit and like it.

    But i have never had a single issue with Epiphany and it is superfast and low overhead.

    So i had an epiphany to use epiphany ;-)

    I am using "OffByOne" for this post

    Some of you may remember it from about 4 years ago............it was supposed to be the World's smallest browser at 1.15Mb..........would fit on a floppy disk.

    Strange as it may seem it actually supports tabbed browsing.

    Well, it hasn't been updated since January 2006 but it does work and I thought it might amuse, particularly because of the size.

    It certainly doesn't support Java, ActiveX, XHTML, HTML 4.0 and a variety of other things.

    I must have been mistaken about FF load times in Win7. I just did a fresh boot, and Firefox opened almost immediately after clicking it. I still maintain my opinion that it is way too much of a memory hog though...

    Edit: Just got a notification that FF 3.5.5 is out...

    Yes, I am using it right now. 3.6 is in beta if you want to take a look.

    i notcied the same with 3.5.4 and more so with 3.5.5 im going to go back to 3.0.15 like nihil suggested for now till they get it fixed
