Re: Straw poll: What browser do you use?

I'm running 3.5.11 on sid.

One of the problems that I have (and maybe one of my problems with performance) is that there are several extensions that I can't live without. I have a slew of them installed, but the main ones I use on a daily basis include:

* AdBlock Plus
* Readability
* Secure Login
* NoScript
* FoxTab (meh...)
* CS Lite
* BugMeNot (though I haven't used it in a while...)

I have several others installed, but these are the ones I use more or less daily.

What version of Iceweasel?

Seems that 3.5.x are getting better in preventing that "leaks" and also
are a bit more resource-wise.
