Opera. They're like the Apple of the browser market, in many ways. I'm even considering buying a license, which would make it the first and last software I've ever paid for in my life.

There always has to be one. It is good for catching bugs in windoze though. If you call that a plus.

Parden me while I go have a good laugh.

You can run it with Wine/Crossover, but:

From: http://www.winehq.com/?issue=259#Wine%20&%20Viruses

Regarding other potential problems, Mike Hearn warned:

The biggest potential entrypoint for viruses in Wine is probably Internet Explorer. People who use that should know the risks involved, and it's massively unlikely anybody would use IE as their default browser on Linux.

Fortunately, someone told me the other day we have a pretty good browser for Linux: http://www.mozilla.org/
"The biggest potential entrypoint for viruses in Wine is probably Internet Explorer"... no thanks, I'll keep on using Firefox! B)

I think someone was making a joke, since the voting was already over. Do people still use IE?

I guess next time we should devide this as GUI Browsers and Text Based Browsers.
B'cos lot of us use Lynx like browsers in addintion to the browser we vote for.
I guess Lynx is one of the populer web browsers.
