Personally have always chosen Firefox, configurability, lower memory overhead etc but you can install however many you want and try them to see which you prefer.

I am surprised that there is so much love for Opera in this thread. I thought I read that it was bought by China.

+1

None of the big browsers is as configurable as Firefox.... That's a huge advantage, at least for me it is.

Lower as opposed to others using more and no, in my experience Firefox still uses less system memory VS others. Partly because someone still has so much access and control over configuration. Not like the good ole days, definitely gotten much heavier but I still never see the ridiculous stats many report with all the modern web browsers. Even what other Firefox users report out-of-box.Though to be fair it's also been a long time since I've tried the others, chrome/ium, opera etc. Don't doubt they can be tweaked too. Only doubt its to the extent Firefox allows.
