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.

Try Minefield - Its Firefox beta - I have been using it for quite a while now - and seems quite good - other then a few glitches (I have Fedora 10 - and whenever there is any notification - File download complete,Newer version of MineField is available--- It crashes)
But if you disable notifications - it works beautifully and if you do benchmarking - its close to Chrome - but lacks a bit in rendering when compared to Chrome - which is fastest of all.
In my experience Google Chrome is not stable at all. Personally I require my browser to be able to block ads, and that's not likely to ever be featured in Chrome. Midori it's still beta, but looks promising. Not very stable yet. Konqueror and Epiphany are stable and perform well, but they are tied to KDE/GNOME. This is very much a matter of preference. For me Firefox is the right choice, but I've heard a lot of good things about Opera. That's why I suggested it. If Firefox crashes on your machine, there must be something wrong with your installation. It has worked fine for me on all the systems I've used it on.
