I'm surprised you're not even considering Opera. It's now Chromium-based but fixes a lot of Chrome's annoyances.
But to be honest, the default browser of any OS you use should suffice.
Have never been able to stand the UI of Opera...WAY too dumbed down/watered down for my liking. I haven't tried it in years though, so I'll give it another shot.
As for using what comes with your OS, monkeys will fly out of my ass before I EVER use IE again.
