I use Firefox and Thunderbird for web browsing and email.

Other everyday open source and/or freeware software I use is: FileZilla for ftp, SyncBack for backing up and synchronizing removable drives, IrfanView for images, Tinn-R for coding in R, and PDFcreator for, who would have guessed, creating pdf's.

I used a template from Open Source Web Design (OSWD) by Andreas Viklund and PSPad to create this webpage.
