What are the best browsers for Linux?

I decided to stop using Chrome/Chromium a while back because I was dissatisfied with Google’s behavior as it related to user privacy. I just felt creeped out when using Chrome, so I switched back to Firefox and so far it works just fine for my needs. I haven’t had a lot of plugin issues with Firefox though that might be because I use comparatively few of them.

The article covers the five browsers listed well, but it is by no means a comprehensive list. You can find a longer list of browsers on Wikipedia’s page about browsers for Unix and Unix-like operating systems. Note that the list includes more than what’s available for Linux, and some have been discontinued. But it will give you an idea of what’s available and show you some interesting browsers from the past.
