WareLogging. One of the current crop of decent browsers. Slimmed down from Mozilla, but includes tabs, a search bar, a better keyboard interface (including find-as-you-type), RSS support, and a slick extension architecture.
Firefox lets you define quick searches, which are just aliases to a URL so that you can type something like "google whatever" and wind up at google.com/search?q=whatever. I defined a set of "searches" to open or edit a page on this wiki, so I can just hit ctrl-L for the location bar and be at any page in a few seconds. The command line rolls on.
Right clicking on selected text gives you an option to "View Selection Source". It seems intelligent enough to display the entire containing element of whatever you've selected.

<BrentNewhall> Firefox often freezes when I use it on a Windows XP computer at work; this seems to be related to the overloaded proxy server at work. Still, it's a bug. It's a testament to Firefox that this is my biggest problem with it. It's a sad statement about modern software that this sort of bug is considered minor.
