Neoplanet's web browser is out of this world.

Advantages: Fast, practical, free, and good fun
Disadvantages: Difficult to choose a skin - there are so many!
I've only been using it in the last couple of days, but Neoplanet's totally free web browser downloads are exceptional. Not only can you download any of the several hundred existing skins to give your existing browser a totally new look, feel, and sound, but you can also design your own using Neoplanet's on-line/downloadable manual, and pre-set elements to slot straight into Photoshop. I don't know much about that myself and am not a photoshop user...but I know people who live for that sort of thing so there must be more of you out there!
The download skins are only a few hundred K each so they are pretty quick to capture even with a slowish modem speed.
Perhaps the best thing though, is a noticeable increase in the speed that pages load, especially through the favourites menu. You only have to click one button to import all your existing favourites to the new browser, but there are many pre-set pages under all the usual categories as well.
Oh, and there are also options which allow you to disable those annoying pop-up ads that plague many pages on the web these days...a Godsend!
