OK, Jeremy, do you have access to the linuxquestions.org raw access logs? Can you put up an [Urchin/Webalizer] Pie chart showing what browsers we were all using when we visited?

Maybe Linux users turn to LQ for help with their machine when it's down/unable to get online, etc - and boot to Windows or use any machine they can get hold of.

Kind regards

Iceweasel 3.5.16 was just unacceptably slow on my new Debian Squeeze system. I found this poll and decided to try Opera
(again). It keeps getting better. I am using it now. It is dramatically faster than Iceweasel w/o
me doing any tweaks (OK, one tweak, I enable Turbo mode.) I have a homemade custom wireless connection (no provider,
going over a 2 km air-gap w/ a directional antenna to a university hard-wired internet). My speed varies from 200 kBit to 20 MBit depending on vagaries of weather, noise in the area, etc. So it's a fast connection ... mostly. Regardless, Opera
w/ Turbo is much more pleasant than Iceweasel. I also like that Opera shows you how many "elements" it has loaded.

Either Chrome or Chromium fits my needs (though I voted for Chromium specifically), because both of them have full extension (and installable Web app) support, as well as their counterpart browser-based Linux distros.

I maintain our Linux server and being new to it, have a lot of questions. But mainly I maintain our forum, which I admin via my Windows PC and I ask questions from my PC. I imagine my situation is not unique.

That is awesome. Not sure if it would work here, due to all the mountains and forests, but I'm curious as to what hardware you use. Maybe a really high antennae would do it?

Midori gets better and better. I'm using 0.3.2 now and it's VERY good! Better then Chrome. Works fast and pretty stable. About 6 months ago I didn't think that Midori would become such a good thing.

After firefox, there are only pretenders to the throne. Now, if they could just do away with the multitude of useless addons that replace simple settings changes an end user could easily do (and ask for a donation). They only bury useful bits deeper in a larger pile of drivel (and cheapen a free and open source resource by trying to scrape nickels and dimes on the back of something they likely are willingly using without donating to mozilla).

Well if you combine the Chrome and Chromium votes together, 184 + 64 = 248, or more than half the votes that Firefox got. So, yeah, Chrome is growing among Linux users because of its ease of use, its lack of Firefox bloat, and its growing availability of apps and extensions (which, at least with extensions, there's over 10,000 of them, including ones which were ported from Firefox (like Adblock Plus for example).

Which only works properly in Firefox, the same as NoScript.
