Best Browsers for Linux

Filed under
Software

With each passing day, I find myself more amazed at the level of innovation shown from within the browser community. Both open source and closed source browsers on the Linux desktop manage to extend browser functionality far beyond the usual. This has proven both exciting and problematic. Exciting in the sense that we can now do more than ever thought previously with our browsers, yet problematic in that we have more moving parts that malfunction us.

In this article, I'll highlight the best browsers for the Linux platform and offer some additional thoughts on how they have made an impact on our lives.

Mozilla Firefox

I've been a rabid Firefox fan for a number of years. Despite loosing interest with most of the 3.x releases, version 4 has won me back as things are running great once again. One of the biggest wins for Firefox is the organizational method for storing my data. It's cross platform, easily backed up and can be migrated to another PC very easily.
