Firefox is slick. I really like it. I would use it on my mac to but it loads really slow. And when I am in windows every now and than I use it there to. I can't wait till the finish working the last few bugs out of it and get to 1.0. Although I wish they would stop changing the name at each stage.

I voted for Konquerer because it's the one I use the most, but, whenever I'm on a Windows system, or someone elses Linux system, I use firefox, it's nice, quick, and easy to use.

For the non-gui crowd, the version of links that comes with most distros doesn't support svgalib mode ... but this one does:

I use this on my labtop to web browse without X .... it is pretty good. Especially for older machines where processor speed and memory are a problem.

And if you really want something nice, install directfb and run links with the directfb driver. I have a screenshot home on my PC, i'll post it when i get home. it's quite pretty.

I prefer firefox above all else. happy.gif

Unlike IE or Mozilla, I don't feel the need to wash my hands after using it. Konquer is good for linux, I guess, but since I use both Linux and windows, I prefer to use one browser for each.

Firefox is my favourite, even though the font handling is a mess, at least on my PC.

Konqueror would be great if it blocked the pop-ups. Or maybe it does and I just do not know how to turn it on?

You can set Konqueror up to block (most) popups.

Go to Settings > Configure Konqueror > On the left menu, click on Java & Javascript (Should be the 6th one down). Click on the "JavaScript" tab and there should be a group named "Global JavaScript Policies". There sould be a "Open new windows:" item with 4 radio objects (round things) next to it. All of the way to the right there is a radio labeled "Smart", click on the box on the immediate left to it and this should work for most Javascript popup ads.

Also, Konqueror is compliant with Netscape plugins. This means you should search the net for a popup ad filter for Netscape under Linux. Once you have downloaded and installed the Netscape plugin, open up Konqueror and go to Settings > Configure Konqueror and in the menu on your left, click on Plugins (2nd from the bottom with a Konqueror icon) and click on the "Scan for New Plugins" button and it should install the plugin from there.

Its definately fast but it doesnt display my website right where mozilla, firefox, IE, Konquerer and everything else does. If they can fix that problem I would definately use it cause of the speed.

You can bet they are working on it.
Why can't I vote in this poll?
My vote would put Opera equal with Firefox.

Cheers.

Web developers who design for IE only are not fit to call themselves web developers. They are a disgrace to the rest of us...

The developer tools in Mozilla.Firefox are very nice, the JS debugger is infinitely better than the thing IE comes with. Not to metnion the CSS support in Gecko-based browsers (Mozilla, Firefox, possibly Konqueror) which is a lot better than IE. In my opinion, the hover psuedo element should be applicable to everything, not just links.

[Sighs and hopes web-development forum will be back online soon]

Well the problem is that Mircosoft has just giving a giant finger to w3 and said to hell with your standards, we are going to make it render how ever we want. I agree, web developers that only develope for IE should be dragged into the street and elcto-shocked. There is nothing I hate more then getting to a sight in Safari of Firefox and not have work at all.

Firefox is hands down one of the most standards compliant browsers ever built, they have tried really hard to make the browser render they way w3 has said it should. Ontop of that, its one of the most user friendly, and feature packed browsers out there. Couple that with being able to avoid the security holes in IE and you have one hell of a browser.

Other than Safari on a mac, I don't see why you would want to use any other browser but Firefox.

Well, if Microsoft dnt release anny mroe standalone versions of IE (there are rumours they wont) then hopefully people will move to Frefox when IE becomes old and even less compliant
