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 love Elinks in monochrome mode since I fell on it, the best to read on the web, a plain text in a terminal with no distractions really calms me down! Two colours and transparency! Of course to do all the rest I have to switch to Chromium!
Firefox. I've tried some, but not all, of the rest.
I've done like brianL, and triedout some if not all the others, but I always end back at Firefox. I usually end up missing some essential feature of Firefox on the others.
Nightly is nice though, on stable release days.

As an Arch user, Elinks was essential for me when updates were constantly breaking my Xorg. Browsing using Elinks straight from tty01 to read what I broke, then promptly applying a fix on tty02, was actually really easy. I never really use Elinks for anything else though.
Distribution: JULinux 12 & 10, Ubuntu Christian 12.04
Although Firefox won browser of the year for the tenth straight year it had its smallest vote percentage since the 2003 awards. In the 2003 awards Firefox, then called "Mozilla Firebird", got 38.31% of the vote. Firefox was in beta at the time, and the Mozilla suite came in second in the 2003 awards. Chromium made the largest gain from the 2011 awards, increasing by 3.91%. Firefox got 24 more votes than last year, but there were numerous more votes in the poll this time around. I did vote for Firefox, and I do have an attachment to using the heir to Netscape Navigator, but Google Chrome and its open source cousin have become quite a competitor.
