I would recommend Opera. It's a great browser, and now as Opera 6 is released (beta) it finally have full support for Java.

Check it out at www.opera.com

Also Galeon is pretty nice. It works quick and I like being able to Tab Browse instead of opening a load of windows. But really, any that come stock with a distro and Opera also have java compatibility/capability, well aside from Lynx/Links perhaps.

Try Netscape 6. It has decent font too. And supports java.

My opinion

I prefer Opera against Netscape as Opera has all necessary functions, implements the greatest number of html and css standards (well, OK html authors should also do that), handles e-mail accounts, chat, and yet nicer, smaller and faster.
I found Netscape (even 4.72) too robust and slow.

Konqueror (comes with Mandrake/KDE) is quite good if you're not going to be surfing lots of web-pages at the same time. It seems to suffer from Explorers problem - if one webpage causes it's instance of Konqueror to fail, then all open Konquerors also fail.

Short answer, for GNOME I use Galeon, it's full featured, fonts are good (hey it uses gecko -the mozilla engine- ) and fast.

For Kde I would use Mozilla, or Opera, or Konqueror...

Opera Tech Preview 3 seems to be VERY unstable when used with Truetype fonts and QT_XFT=1 exported.

I don't know if the problem is with using truetype fonts, but Opera TP3 crashes every day for.

Mozilla gets the job done most of the time. Konquerer is good for browsing FTP sites becuase you can drag and drop.

if you've got gnome installed anyway, why not just use galeon under kde too?

acid right now I've got installed *just* Enlightenment + GNOME, but when I was using KDE I considered ugly to have a gtkish app in a KDE environment... go figure!
