Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

WebKit includes a small demo browser that is hardly usable, but Qt 4.4 snapshots (that include WebKit as a part of Qt) come with an improved demo browser that may just become good enough to evolve into some people's favorite browser in time for next year's polls
There's midori too.
Basically it's a web browser using webkitgtk. It's light, fast and renders properly. The problem is it's still alpha with a bad bug regarding tabs.
However I bet it will become great.
Firefox' "lets render everything *plus* the kitchensink" approach makes it flakey when a system is under stress, (certain combinations of) plugins make it instable and while the "recover session" is a nice idea it shouldn't have this tendency to crash in the first place.
I've been accustomed to using tabs, built-in session management, built-in per-site prefs (including user supplied CSS and .js) and ad blocking and thorough configurability for a long time now. That can only spell Opera...
Its configurable search field. I love it.
Modes, Author mode and User mode, awesome feature and creativity.
It has lot of features that are easily accessible.
RESPECT THOSE WHO RESPECT STANDARDS...
Same features are also in Firefox but they are hidden in menus and plug-in.
E.g. Zooming feature, in Opera its on the tool bar and quite visible so easier to use. These same features are in Firefox, but its hidden in menus so hard to use. Even I didn't know that I could zoom in Firefox until I read somewhere.
What I miss in Opera is spell check facility.
If some opera developer is reading, please get the voice support in Linux version also.
Generally, I use Firefox/Iceweasel/Icecat for general browsing, but I find myself using Opera exclusively if I need to do any searches. I just find Opera zips around a lot quicker when I jump from site to site in search of answers.
