Your favorite internet browser


Good day!

I have set firewall and system access settings for some user "internet". User "Internet" has full access to its home directory and read permissions to internet browser library files.

I run my favorite internet browser from kde using "run as user internet".

It all worked fine till today. Now it does not.

I am becoming mad, as I am writing this message wrom the same internet connection but other (windows) computer. And I have nothing changed in my linux box since last connection to internet.

Could you give advices on some simple and truthworthy internet browsers where I can give them permissions and they just connect to internet? With no special requirements on my system resources.

Connection was not a problem.

Problem was some paranoid linux amateur who is writing this message and somehow managed to mount users "internet" homedirectory with ro option.
