I'd use Firefox if Gmail played a bit better with it :(
For email i use thunderbird, never understood the hype with web-mail.
I completely agree with Thunderbird (just open it, type my password and it's done, no need to go to a specific URL then write my email adress before typing my password), and I also never had any problems with gmail in FireFox.
I'm using Thunderbird too but more for IRC.

I personally always was confused and had troubles setting up external mail clients for some reasons. With Gmail you just type an e-mail and password and you're set. With Outlook and that stuff there is always plenty of other confusing options if you are not familiar with weird vocabulary like POP/IMAP.

Also I am surprised I am not the only Opera user in the poll, considering the amount of vote and the very small market share that Opera has compared to Firefox and Chrome.
Thunderbird makes connecting to your gmail account easy :)

POP is when you download all the mail locally to your computer and delete it off the server.
IMAP is when the email stays on the server and doesn't get deleted.

I use Abrowser, the modified Firefox of the Trisquel project (a completely free software distro). It's basically a rebranded Firefox with an free software-only addon list. Other than that and Ubuntu's Firefox patches, it's exactly the same as stock Firefox. It's rebranded only because of trademark issues (like Iceweasel).

EDIT: Should I put other or Firefox? :P

@Legimet: I would put Firefox...
@DJ Omnimaga: Opera has been growing fast (it is one of the 5 major browsers).  I installed it once...  It is pretty and its new tab page is nice, but I don't use it due to speed.
@Firefox users: Install FasterFox, AdBlock Plus, and Ghostery.  Launch about:config and enable pipelining.  I guarantee you that nothing is faster than your browser now.

Totally forgot to enable pipelining on this computer.

Can pipelining cause issues accessing sites such as SMF on which if you have too many connections you get throttled?

@Eeems: enable pipelining, and disable the extension blocklisting (search blocklist).  Adobe has been having some problems with the so called "Flash Update," so Firefox currently requires you to allow flash before loading a plugin.

MaskMe is a great extension- I have no spam.
@bb010g: There appears to be an error in the site you linked to.  Is this extension on the Mozilla "web store?"

It's a chat client that speaks a bunch of different protocols, like IRC, MSN, AIM and XMPP.
