Safari, occasionally supplanted by Firefox.

Your list is oddly out of date. No one even keeps statistics for Netscape anymore, yet you don't list Opera or Safari.

I use Lynx. I don't have to worry about misplaced pr0n ads or any of that nasty flash. It runs great on my Packard Bell 486SX.

Firefox 3, on Ubuntu 8.04 and on Windows.

If you have experience with developing web applications, you'd know how horrible Internet Explorer really is...

Chrome: To browse Google sites (Gmail, Reader, Blogger etc)
Firefox: Almost everything except when using Chrome.
Safari: When browsing from my iPhone
Internet Explorer: For the sites that doesn't work with Firefox (or other browsers).
Lynx: When I don't want others to know that I'm browsing!

After Safari, Camino is a nice alternative.

The % usage of IE/Firefox/google chrome/netscape/others in the ranch is nowhere comparable with rest of the world.
