It is just a matter of personal preference but Opera is my favorite browser. The main reason that I mostly use Opera is that it is fast. The next development for Opera will come with malware protection:
“Opera, the Norwegian-based web browser, has struck a deal with Haute Secure to include malware detection and blocking in the browser’s new 9.5 release. The new version is currently available as a beta, with a final release imminent.”
You may want to give Opera a try. It claims that it is the fastest and “most secure free Web browser available“. I gave it a try many years ago and it has found itself on every computer I use regularly.
