I have Firefox (1.0.4). It works for basic browsing but I find that it does not play Macromedia files. Having read the above comments though, I am going to update Firefox to 1.5 and see if that helps.

I would have to agree. Fire Fox has forced MS to make changes and to innovate. That is something that MS hasn't done in years.

None of the above.
Firefox is what I use, but it's still too slow.
Opera has decent enough speed but doesn't render lots of pages quite right.
Konqueror still has a way to go.

I have had no problems with firefox except for the time that I couldn't figure out how to get the jre plugin to work. 'ln -s' saved my life for other cases other than that too :-D.

firefox

although when i use kde-konqueror is the best and is very smooth... however compatibility and cross-compatibility win firefox over for me.
you people who put lynx-text browsers are always great to have-but it cant beat a gui browser
