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.

What about the classic Mozilla - Seamonkey Internet Suite?

Back in the day I used to use dillo I dunno if that was on the list or not. Actually I am not sure if its even being developed anymore or not if not I will be a sad panda as I loved it. It was simple clean and did what it needed to do.
More then anything tho I would like someone to create a open source flash alternative. The one from adobe is prone to abuse and causes Firefox to crash on all flash content if you build Firefox from source with system used libs.
Seamonkey got a few votes, but if you want something that works for mail and browsing, try Seamonkey again; it still works, in fact, it works better than ever before.
I've never fully understood the differences between Seamonkey/Iceape and Firefox/Iceweasel, in all honesty. They've always seemed like the same thing under a different name.
And Flash is always a pest in browsers, it's either Gnash, which doesn't always work well, or adobe-flash which is a resource hog. Unless I'm missing a Mozilla-browser compatible option.
There's always Chromium, the only relation to Google is that it's hosted on Google Code.
Personally I don't find Firefox memory intensive or heavy. It works just fine for me, and even manages to be respectable on older computers as well.
Chrome/Chromium on the other hand, the only thing left that I like is that each tab is a separate process. Bring that to Firefox, and nothing will have a chance against it for me.
Yes, I like Chrome/Chromium. The speed is fast. Just lacks some enhanced features I always stick to: mouse gesture, adblock, Superdrag etc. Those features are also important for me cause they can save 30% of my time when surfing internet. That's why I choose chromeplus, the best! Try it at www.chromeplus.org . Worthy!
