"Once upon a time, you had a choice of one browser for
Linux. That was the venerable Netscape which, in all honesty, is a
terrible browser for a variety of reasons, none of which I will
elaborate on here.
Over the last few months, though, the situation has made a
change for the better, with a larger selection of browsers
available than ever before.
Which is best? Well, while it's hard to reliablly test stability
(a site that will crash a browser one day will work fine the next
in my experience) we can test loading times, page rendering times,
the look of the browser, ease of configuration, and basically see
what browser gives the best overall performance."
