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.

I liked firefox ( I mean debian's version: iceweasel), but it was so slow to start/ open new tabs I got sick of it. Chrome is really great! Although for greasemonkey scripts that need to check other tabs I still use iceweasel a bit.
Hooah for chrome!
I would say Firefox, but Chrome has made quite the impression this last year, and the one factor that has actually made the difference between FFX and Chrome for me is the fact that Chrome opens when I click the icon, as opposed to Firefox which makes me wait for a few seconds (sometimes up to a minute)
Firefox seems to run the best on Linux, for me anyway. I have an old P4 and a new AMD dual core and Chromium (stable, daily, all of them) run terribly on both. Graphical glitches galore. Maybe it's the humidity or something, but Chromium is excruciatingly slower than both Opera and Firefox. I guess it's just on my machines since everybody raves about it's speed so much.
And Firefox has the ability to, you know, deal with bookmarks in a reasonable way, mass download, and so on. Opera's ok, but it's closed source and its too much work to use the conveniently built in features like user styles and scripts. I can just pick up Firefox and go!
