Probably the best browser with a vanilla install is Opera.

I'm hardcore a Firefox junkie, but Chrome would be my second choice. Chrome blows every browser out of the water in speed tests, but isn't quite up to par in terms of customization and usability (i.e. extensions, options, and such) in my opinion. But I use it when the need arises without much fuss.

Safari works, I just don't like it (too slow, and addons are a joke).

Don't get me started on IE...

Opera is a lot like Firefox, albeit less dummy friendly (once again, in my opinion).

^^^^If you absolutely need customizations (extensions) then you limit your browser options. Generally the more you add the more unstable the browser is. The first thing that Mozilla suggests to resolve browser instability is to remove all extensions. Even they know the mess it creates.

I used to think that I needed that as well until I tried Opera. It really has everything I needed already built into the browser. IE9 is also pretty good although it still has horrible animated GIF rendering, which is only common on internet forums.

SeaMonkey 2.0.8 as default, and Firefox and K-Meleon if you have a home office, especially if you write, edit, or research a lot.

Use Jarte Plus as your word processor, WordWeb Pro as local dictionary, American Heritage at Yahoo as home page for K-Meleon, Mobysaurus Thesaurus as local Thesaurus, Convert, FriedBabelfish, and Password Safe along with the browsers as the core of a home office.
SeaMonkey as the center. Read info on its site and you'll see why, and by extension the others. I like the Gecko browsers, except Flock which uses too much ram. The Gecko browsers and IE 8 support multiple home pages, and that's good for home office because each home page can be an area of interest, reference, or research site.

Use SeaMonkey and your imagination. These are the addons I have for SeaMonkey, many are familiar, but some are for writing etc. I have the same or equivalents for Firefox and K-Meleon (There is an addon manager now for K-Meleon, makes it easy to install and uninstall extensions.):
BBCodeXtra
BetterPrivacy
Cert Viewer Plus (I have VeriSign email certs)
Certificate Patrol
ChatZilla
CS Lite
Display Mail User Agent 1.6.5
DOM Inspector
Ghostery
JavaScript Debugger
Lightning
Minimize To Tray Plus
NoScript
Session Manager
WOT

Don't let friends see how organized you are because they will call you for information all the time.
Excuse my screaming, I got a dozen calls today. I am beginning to say NO. They have computers. After saying no, I offer to help them setup their computers.
