Where is Links ? The browser which NEEDS to be used atleast once to experience the OTHER side of linux.

Its like lynx, but it has a commandline GUI and supports mouse. Quite unique and extremely fast.

links/elinks is in the poll, right between lynx and Epiphany.

Isn't IceWeasel or IceCat just a rebranded version of Firefox by the Debian folks? Does it deserve it's own nomination if its essentially Firefox with a new name?

FF (or Iceweasel as I use the version from the Debian official repo) and as have been pointed out, the extensions really does it. Otherwise I think Opera is looking more and more interesting...

I thought so too. After I voted I saw that IceCat is supposed to be the IceWeasel alternative and here I was putting my vote on FireFox when I use IceWeasel (which I still believe amounts to pretty much the same thing).

According to http://www.gnu.org/software/gnuzilla/
Quote:
Origin of the name

The name “IceCat” was coined to show our relation with the Mozilla Firefox browser. Ice isn't Fire and a Cat isn't a Fox, so it is clearly a different package (we don't want Mozilla blamed for our mistakes, nor cause confusion with their trademarks), but is equally clearly intimately related (of course nearly all of the work comes from the Mozilla foundation effort, so we want to give credit).

The gNewSense BurningDog browser and the Debian IceWeasel browser are similarly derived from Firefox, also with the intent of being free software. Technically, however, these projects are maintained entirely independently of IceCat. (Previously, this GNU browser project was also named IceWeasel, but that proved confusing.)
Therefore, Firefox, Iceweasel, and Icecat all exist. Firefox is the Mozilla branded version, Iceweasel is the Debian implementation, and Icecat is the GNU implementation.

Also, Iceape is the Debian implementation of Seamonkey. I use and prefer the Seamonkey and Iceape implementations, which are "Internet Suites", consisting of a Web browser, Email client, News client, Address Book, and Chat programs.

Aha! Like, embarrassingly enough, IBM's job search page (which is licensed from some third party.)
