    Firefox to browse, as it's the only decent graphical browser that works on OS X, Linux and XP on those rare occassions when I have to use it.

    As for email, it's got to be mutt, for several reasons:
    1. I can install it on my server, ssh in from anywhere and not have to copy my preferences like I would with say Thunderbird or Outlook (ok you might be able to load them from a server or something, but when you use as many different machines and networks as I do that's not really practical)
    2. HTML emails don't load lots of stupid images (they're nearly always spam anyway)
    3. I can easily delete loads of obvious spam without having to actually open any of them
    4. It runs fast and doesn't leak memory or bring my machine to a crawl ten minutes after opening it
    5. When I send emails, I know they're going out in plain text regardless of my preferences (Thunderbird defaults to HTML, or it did last time I checked)

    The only problem I've ever come across with mutt is its inability to use an external SMTP server, but there are ways around that and I believe there's a project called Mutt Next Generation or something which does allow for this. Personally I just run a simple postfix server that accepts connections only on and relays everything to my ISP.

    Suprised Mozilla wasn't on the list...I used it most until it had so many problems and not so many updates.

    Also didn't see wget, curlssl, and netcat...I use those for pages I don't trust
    There is only one constant, one universal, it is the only real truth: causality. Action. Reaction. Cause and effect...There is no escape from it, we are forever slaves to it. Our only hope, our only peace is to understand it, to understand the 'why'. 'Why' is what separates us from them, you from me. 'Why' is the only real social power, without it you are powerless.
