Unfortunately, I cannot access the internet through Linux as my ISP is coughAOLcough...So I am an I.E. user. If though when I did have access to www in Linux, twas by far happiest with Galeon...

tazzy... hey no worries... it's about choosing your favorite web browser... not the one you're forced to use... (just like how most of us have to dual boot coz we want games! doesn't make Windybozo our favorite operating system )

interesting... i suppose these numbers are quite local to this forum... but here's my 2 cents on what's going on so far...

i believe gnome vs kde users would more or less represent the galeon/konquerer divide...

and i'm guessing the rest are either using other windows managers or not too comfy with a non desktop-independent browser.

and whoooo! i never knew lynx could be anyone's fav browser... i use it only when i have not much choice... lol... who voted lynx?

Don't anybody knock the Lynx! It's saved my bacon a few times
I do think it need a new name though,
it should be called...."ohnoI'vef******myXserverthankgodfortheLYNX"

hm... according to this small poll, looks like netscape ranks right abreast lynx... hohoho!

mozilla has pulled into the lead at this point... 7 votes!... lol
apparently, galeon uses mozilla's rendering engine... but i just can't resist the little foot on my desktop panel... lol
plus i think the performance is better on galeon...

hm... haven't used opera though... ought to try it soon...

Well, opera wasn't up yet... and I had to vote... I use it a lot at work to read the forum when snoopy twerps from work are leaning over my shoulder that animated gif of the arm bashing the laptop over there on the left looks rather conspicuous.

Cheers,

Finegan
