Thread: Which Brower do you use?

  1. #1

    Which Brower do you use?

    I personally prefer Konqueror over any of them but Galeon has a very close second and on XP, firefox is my primary one. I am just wondering which one do you use?

    Re:Which Brower do you use?

    I'm Gnome guy and Moz works great so why I need others?

    Opera, hhmm... I use Opera on Windows but I feel odds having Opera on Debian.

    I would want to use opera, but it looks ugly in linux, so I'm using mozilla.

    I use Firefox for most of the time. However, once in a while, I may use Lynx or Links.

    Yeah. I realized that after I installed it on Slack so thank goodness I installed it from source. I had to remove it right away and I just did a make uninstall and got rid of it. Links and Lynx both come with Slack but I prefer Links over Lynx and Konqueror over the rest of them.

    I have never heard of Epiphany. Hm.. does it come with all standard GNOME packages? I will need to check it out.

    [update] I googled for it and the screenshots look pretty nice. I might try it in the future! Thanks Ralinx! [/update]

    i used to use Mozilla in Gnome as well... the advantage that Epiphany has over Mozilla is that it looks and feels like a Gnome application... it integrates better into the desktop. It still uses the mozilla back-end (gecko) for it's html rendering so epiphany basically gives you the rendering that you're used to with mozilla, but with a more integrated look-n-feel. oh yea, the memory footprint is also smaller than Mozilla.

    i love mozilla, but i don't like the fact that the UI is so weird. It's not ugly but it just doesn't fit in with the rest of the desktop and trying to find a mozilla theme that matches with the gnome theme you're currently using isn't easy.

    So basically, epiphany gives you the best of both worlds IMO.
