"On several occasions I have bemoaned the lack of a decent Web browser for Linux. Netscape is quite possibly the worst piece of software I've found in Linux."

"...Viable alternatives are few and far between. There are several other browser projects, but none which are cross-platform or are not tied to a specific window manager that don't have shortcomings in one area or more."

"Enter Opera. Opera has been around for Windows for many years now. It's fast, sleek and is only really lacking Java support. Javascript is supported, but not Java. Since I never use Java, this doesn't concern me. I personally think Java is the worst thing to hit the Web since the BLINK tag."
