please vote for your favorite web browser, and if you want to, tell us why it is your favorite

 

I must admit to loving FireFox the more I use it, but I also use Mozilla daily,

Well i like opera mainly because it has everything i need already and i use it in windows and linux. :rolleyes:

 

My least favourite has to be Internet Explorer probebly for it's 17 ads that popup everytime you start it and it's 7 searchbars I don't want and can't remove :angry::ph34r:

Safari for me. i like that browser coz it so fast and classic. i know it only for mac. but they should IMPORT for Linux and windows then it even more class!

 

Meaning time i use Linux and windows, only use Firefox :)

in a linux with gui its Firefox, if not, links2.. If I had my choice for any browser to be for all 3 platforms, I also think Safari is a nice browser, would be great to have it for more than Mac OSX.

I voted galeon. I'm in kde but use galeon... ha :) I like the bookmarkletts and the icon size (1.3.14) is great. newer versions suck.

 

on my work box, I have my homepage set to portal: and the address bar is BLANK which is unusual... but great because it's a royal pain to remove whatever is there without selecting it (and copying to the clipboard).

 

I also have mozilla on this box, (rh9+kde-redhat.org) which is configured without a proxy for visiting sites that get screwed up with proxies (like webmin, and webdevelopment sites).

 

also have firefox in ~/bin (eg a local install) with flash/mplayer/whatever installed so i can view pretty sites if i want to.

 

i don't think we could vote for wget... is that classed as a browser? I use it heaps anyway, as well as lynx.. but mostly just for downloading stuff ...

 

 

da!!as

Just saw the site...anyweb-kicks-ass.net. It makes me laugh! (The domain. The site is pure gold!)

 

By the way...could this site handle a slashdotting??

it survived and it happened

 

Most users ever online was 693 on Nov 8 2004, 11:08 PM

 

however i did have to take drastic measures (pull the network cable out for the night)

 

the site survived as you can see clearly right here on netcraft.com

 

 

reasons why i pulled the cable for those 7 hours:

 

far too many hits from slashdot

the computer was not powerful enough

not enough ram

slow hard disc

mysql was going to bring the server to it's knees (hard disc access was 100% and uptime revealed that the server load was totally going out of control all down to mysql... and lack of ram and cpu power.)

 

the site that was slashdotted was this one (linux-noob.com)

 

and it's hosted on a laptop (dell latitude L400) with 256mb ram, 20 gig hd, p3 677 mhz processor, 8mb down/800kb/s up line

 

which is of course, not enough when it comes to a slashdot

 

in addition

 

http://anyweb.kicks-ass.net

http://anyweb.homedns.org

http://htas.game-host.org

https://www.linux-noob.com

 

are all hosted on the same box (under my stairs)

 

so the fact that the site is still up after all that is good ! go fedora i say

 

it runs on fedora core release 1

 

and yeah it needs to be upgraded. i'll do that someday

 

cheers

Normally I used AOHELL then it was IE, but then I changed to Firefox because of the amount of spyware that I got from IE.

 

I've been using Firefox for about a week now and love it! Best browser that I have used so far. Its been reliable and there hasn't been any problems with spyware like I got from using IE.

 

*Thumbs Up* to Firefox :D

So...it's hosted on a Dell laptop? That's awesome! Sorta...

 

Go to some auctions or something, I picked up an IBM RS/6000 at a CSU auction a few weeks ago for ten bucks. =]

Well, Firefox, because it loads itself, and web pages faster than IE, and on Linux, I use or used Mozilla as a GUI browser, now don't usually use a GUI on Linux, so if I wanted to browse the web or something from it, I use lynx.

To be honest, I love lynx. but on my boxes that can run a gui, I run firefox.

I use lynx too, and i found it hard to register here, because i needed to put the security code:D hehe and i couldnt..

I have to add chrome as my favorite web browswer. I like it actually better than firefox because it's faster and has flash built into it. As in for firefox I always have to install flashplugins before it works, chrome flash always works without having to install anything extra.
