best web browser


Hi,

I need help to state which is the most productive web browser out there , my favourite would be links .

firefox is very extensible but is a memory hog

chrome or chromium is very fast but not a great use in productive ENV

opera is the king of tabs and inovations and is the only one that can handle .mht files but it cannot even read opera mini web archives

konqueror is very configurable and handles splitting ( emacs style) like no one but many websites hates it and does not handle ecmascript very well.

rekonq seems a slimmed down version of konqueror

seamonkey is a very stable version of firefox


If I am missing some other web browsers post here please.


How to recommend needs some terse criterion??

"Best" is always a subjective judgment, unless you give some definition of the criteria you consider important in the decision.

Firefox can handle mht files with the Mozilla Archive Format extension, by the way. I've also read recently that the devs have started seriously focusing on improving it's memory performance.

And Seamonkey is the descendent of the Mozilla/Netscape 6 suite; it is not directly related to Firefox. Although they share a lot of underlying code and concepts, they are separate projects.

There may be 10 or so more.

Text based ones have been OK for decades.
Safari should install.
QTweb is pretty fast.
