"Our Web browsers do everything these days, and they're also the #1 malware vector. Eric Geier reviews four excellent Web browsers for Linux, Mac, and Windows users that are safer, friendlier, and better than Internet Explorer.

"Just about all the mainstream web browsers today are available for download in Linux. Since most of your computing time is likely spent in front of the browser, you shouldn't just settle with the one that came preinstalled with your distribution. We'll review four different browsers you can use in Linux, where you can pick the one that's best for you.

"Before we discuss the unique features of these browsers, I should point out a couple features included in all of them. Some of these features might be new to you if you're coming from Internet Explorer. They each have some sort of pop-up blocker and phishing/malware protection. Additionally, they all have an integrated spell checker, which can really be invaluable. Each browser (except Flock 2.6.1) has a synchronization feature so your settings and favorites will be the same across all your computers. Plus they also have some sort of password and download manager."
