Can't you just do your color management in windows? I use spyder2express and Chrome reflects it's calibration.

I've used everything at one point, but I've been using firefox for 6-7 years now. It's fast, easy to use, bookmark system is great, ect.

ff for me too, simply cause the addons and customisation!

i have about 25-30 addons, havent tried noscript cause im not 100% sure if it will interfere with some sites too much

i dont think im gonna like ff 4 tho cause its interface is supposed to be more like chrome ive heard

Firefox

due to adblock

Chrome here. Totally satisfied with its simplicity and speed.
Firefox is slower and slower for me, which was the reason I gave it up.

I use Firefox mainly because it seems to load faster than Internet Explorer

UPS? And why are you accessing WAP via a PC browser, do you code for mobile websites or something?

That is becoming my experience too which is mainly why I asked

I am surprised that Safari has such a large following. I like it on Mac, but on Windows, there are better options. I use Chrome, but only because I am sick of FF when in Microsoft. I use a Mac.

I was surprised too, actually; i'd heard that Safari's performance really sucks in Windows. Maybe they've been working on that lately

Chrome+AdBlock = perfect for me. I don't know why FF is becoming really slow on my laptop.

I voted Firefox before I realized the poll allowed multiple voting. At home I occasionally use another browser, usually IE8. I tried Chrome when it came out and didn't like it.

At work I use Firefox because of Firebug. I haven't found a better way to debug JavaScript. I wish it worked in all browsers. I use Safari, IE6, and IE8 for comparability testing.

I'm still the only IE7 voter. I've never found a reason to upgrade past 7, I've tried Opera and Firefox, neither felt faster to me. When I started hearing about all these new features like adblock, flashblock, mouse gestures, session saving, etc, I installed IE7Pro - The Ultimate Add-On for Internet Explorer It gives me everything the newer browsers have.

I also voted for OTHERS. For some specific sites/purposes I use OffByOne, a very simple browser (no support for pretty much everything) that does exactly what I need it to, as fast as possible.

The right link to download and install the Beta version is: http://dev.chromium.org/getting-involved/dev-channel

I use a Spyder2Pro and the images rendered by Chrome are indeed calibrated by my graphics card's LUT but the original rendering itself is incorrect. It just so happens that when Chrome renders graphics in the wrong colorspace they usually end up with a red tint for me.
