I use Epiphany.
If you remember Galeon, it was 'Firefox' before there was a firefox. 'Just the web' sort of approach and used the Mozilla engine. Well Epiphany is a fork from that, and later Galeon development was folded back into Epiphany, more or less. It's now the official browser of Gnome.
It's lighter on the resources then Firefox, especially when used in Gnome, although it's not especially lighter.
I like it becaue of that, but also because it's not fancy and it integrates into Gnome much much nicer then Firefox. For instance through Gnome it supports theming properly and it does things like support the *.desktop standard properly so that applications you choose for media types through nautilus will be used by Epiphany's settings also.
I like how easy it is to arrange buttons along the top. I also like that it's using the mozilla engine.
I don't care if it runs on OS X or windows or if supports all the plugins or add-ons and so on and so forth. I just want a browser and Epiphany does a decent enough job.
