My favourite browser in windows is SeaMonkey and in PC-BSD there is more than one- Konqueror and Opera 9 (not sure witch is first though).

Don't know exactly why, but I hate FireFox (maybe GTK is causing my headaches).

You should have separated Firefox from Konqueror. Those will probably get #1, and Konqueror is PC-BSD's default browser and Firefox is the most used browser on Unix.

I placed firefox and konqueror together since from the end user standpoint they are very simular. Netscape navigator as since to my undestanding Firefox is the son of Mozilla who is the son of Netscape to put it briefly.

I'd have liked to place each browser in it's own slot, but most places I've been to cap polls at 8 to 10 choices.

Votes are supposed to be backed by a post no?

Firefox is my favorite on Windows. I get irritated quickly when on a Windows machine and I have to use IE. I quickly get reminded how useless IE is.

On PB-BSD I like Opera 9 best. I use Konqueror some but just hasn't clicked with me.

Will have to try Sea Monkey. The name itself qualifys it for a try.

Seamonkey is a community continuation of Mozilla Suite which reached it's end of life release awhile back.

Firefox, though it is not a definite choice. Just about any browser capable of showing ALL kinds of online content is okay (skipping ActiveX crap of course)
