Firefox under Windows, Linux and Android, although tbh, the Android version isn't brilliant, so I've only occasionally used it.  Generally Android's own browser seems to be better on the phone.

I just tried Lynx, and it functions here, but it's hard work.  I think I'll stick to Firefox.
Actually, it is rocket science.

Firefox, whatever the mainstream auto-update version happens to be.

It's more stable than IE and less resource-drainy than Chrome, and it has AdBlock, which is enough all on its own.  Whenever I switch browser, I get startled by how damn noisy the web is without it.
It takes blood and guts to be this cool but I'm still just a cliché.

Firefox home and work. Like andy, the various plug-ins I use just make it so much nicer and less cluttered.

Safari on the iPhone.

Firefox (although I have Chrome and Opera installed for when I need them).

I've been a Netscape/Mozilla user since the mid 90s. The only time I've ever used IE was on a work computer and by the time YACF was up and running I had left that place of work. Thankfully, there is no version of IE available for my chosen operating system 8).

Chrome at work and at home.
Occasionally Firefox.
Often Safari from my iPhone.

Chrome here. Used to be Camino (Firefox looks horrid on a Mac and runs like a sloth in a bath full of treacle), but it started to slurp up some of that Mozilla bloat juice. Foul stuff, apparently.

Occasionally dabble with Safari on the few rare occasions when a site doesn't like Chrome.

IE at work where I have no choice.
I now use Portable Chrome c/o Portable Apps running off a USB key at work.  More than fast enough.

Oh and just swapped to Chrome on the home PCs as default, rather than Firefox.

Opera, which had multiple tabbed browsing before Firefox even existed.  Forced to use IE at work.

I have an instinctive objection to Chrome. Google have enough of my personal info as it is and I'm loathe to hand over my browser as well.

Very much how I feel about it.  I've been to Google's Zurich office and know several people who now work for them in various technical roles.  I do view it as something of a cult.

Since there are at least two forumers who work for Google in London, you had better watch out, they'll be after you shortly. ;D

I get out of any cultishness by using Safari on OSX.  ;D

Firefox from home.   By choice.

IE at work where I have no choice.

Ditto.

Firefox. And YACF is one of the better sites to browse when using Safari on the iPod Touch, although it's still an interesting experience.
