Definately firefox.

The type to find feature is incredibly useful, and I miss it when I don't have it. Extensions are another reason that I use it, especially google sync.

My killer app is xkill, but I would almost never need it if not for Firefox.

For all it's flaws (and there are many) I agree. I just can't stay away, and I've tried many many browsers.

To be more specific though, I absolutely cannot live without Firefox+ All-In-One Gestures extension. WHY CLICK ON THE BACK BUTTON?

On every computer I use, especially those at work running IE6, I always click the right mouse button and drag left really quickly to go back...And I get a context menu ;)

Sometimes we spoil ourselves...
