"There are many different web browsers available for
Linux, the most popular of which is Firefox. However, the market
dominance of Firefox does not mean that this is necessarily the
best web browser for every situation.
"Everyone has their own needs, some preferring heavyweight
browsers packed with a large number of features and add-ons, other
users still wanting an attractive graphical browser but with a
smaller footprint. Many graphical browsers consume large amounts of
memory. Some users find this not acceptable, especially if they are
using a machine with low specifications. Consequently, this article
also caters for text browsers. This type of browser is invaluable
on systems without a graphical environment. Moreover, parts of the
world are still reliant on low bandwidth internet connections, and
text browsers can be a sensible way of making the most effective
use of a limited data pipe."
