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.

Heyy!! It's incredible that nobody said a word about Qupzilla!!
It is a very good lightweight browser based on QT libs, the best I've ever used. It doesn't crashes like midori does sometimes, and it's lighter than chromium!! It's really customizable and has adblock installed by default: as for the menus, they're pretty similar to firefox!
Just tried it. It needed a bunch of qt dependencies installed so I went ahead and installed them. Long story short. It crashes in my Laptop. CPU was jumping all over the place. So I used apt-get purge qupzilla and then apt-get autoremove to get rid of the qt dependencies I installed. Took up about 40MB of installed space in /.
The QT web browser I linked to has everything needed in the folder to run statically without needing to install dependencies.
I am an Opera fanboy and have been since v. 3.x about a dozen years ago.
It's not just for the browsing; Opera includes a mail client, RSS client, IRC client, and newsgroup client (not recommended for binary newsgroups). For overall bang for your bytes, I find that you get more with Opera.
I am not sure if I can add to this thread. It was started in 2009. It was later added to in 2012. Now, 2016, I would like to comment on Midori (as it is entirely relevant at the moment).
I used Midori (not sure what version) on Antix-15, and now on Antix-16 (Midori 0.5.11). It has been very good (to extremely good) and stable over several weeks now.
The minor problem I am having with it at the moment (on my lightweight PC, with an olde SiS graphics card) is that some web-page boxes are rendered with heavy black borders. (I mean so heavy that the border can sometimes overlay some text on the side.) My recent inquiries indicate that is a product of the ability of the olde graphics setup concurrent with "special effects" settings, and including Midori capability. I am trying to work out which ?theme?, ?icons? or other effect is the problem.
In defense of Midori (and Antix and XFCE) - after being totally satisfied with the Antix-XFCE combo - I decided to "adjust" some of the xfce desktop settings. I mean I adjusted lots of them - so I am not sure exactly when this problem arose (because it showed up in some web pages only). It is now a case of trial-and-error to track down the one doing it. (I can still websurf without crashes though.)
I can say that Midori - in other distro/versions - stopped on me just a couple of times BUT that has not happened at all lately, in this new distro/dm/browser combo. So I am keen to hunt down this "border" problem. (And NO, I don't think has anything to do with "Trump".)
I will report back when I find it.
[PS If anyone knows exactly which one then, by all means, please reply.]
