Firefox for addons and stability.
Epiphany for its freedom and speed.
Konqueror for its KDE intergration.
Opera for its speed and widgets.

I have always been an opera fan(when using windows), but I switched to Firefox because Opera fonts in linux are awful.  Embarrassed

I agree with rusev_ivo. Back in my Windows days, I was an unimpeachable Opera fanatic, but for whatever reason, I just can't get a good, legible look for Linux Opera. I should do some more research on this, but who has the time for everything?

And it's hard to argue with Firefox's arsenal of add-ons.

I have never used it, but Opera looks OK on KDE4.

Firefox. Though it get jerky on some (but not all) sites. Agreeing with others that I couldn't get fonts to look good in Opera.

I don't know what it is about Opera, it just seems... bloated, and lacks image (the big "O"), but I like the skins, (the widgets I think are useless since it requires your browser to be open in order to activate them (at least in my experience).

I'd like to see Ice Weasel on Pardus.

But isn't Ice Weasel the same thing as Firefox Huh?

Yes, its basically a complete rebranding of Firefox, which techinically, is not "libre". The opening post would then look like this:
Firefox for addons and stability.
Epiphany for its freedom and speed.
Konqueror for its KDE intergration.
Opera for its speed and widgets.
> Ice Weasel for addons, stability and freedom.

IceWeasel is Firefox. Because the Firefox logo is registered, so no other company can register it and then claim the name. Debian then created the name IceWeasel for firefox, as an alternative unregistered name.
