spruce is a nice and slim email client. my favourite, definetely.
browser i donīt know - iīm using mozilla without mail and news options. on my box itīs pretty fast- much faster at least than former versions
Location: Rome, Italy ; Novi Sad, Srbija; Brisbane, Australia
Distribution: Ubuntu / ITOS2008
Low end GUI e-mail reader could be sylpheed, its fast and functional, plus you can tell it to store mail in /var/mail/user so other readers such as mutt can find it easily.
For browser lynx and links are good, but text only. Also i heard about skipstone, heard its good.
spruce looks nice. i dont want to do command line browsing, i checked out lynks and links and they're not for me, i guess i'll keep with dillo. i would like to know if theres any middle ground, a program that does more than dillo but is not as resource intensive as mozilla.
Mozilla as usual browser
I'm using mozilla 1.2.1 standard included with RH9.0.
Very nice thanks to its smoothed fonts (thanks xft)
Opera for more critical missions
When it comes to websites fully respecting W3C that Mozilla sometimes can't display correctly, this is the right choice. Appealing themes as well.
Konqueror for flexible ID
When wanting to go on my bank website (you know, for web banking) Konqueror tries to play its role not badly as it offers the possibility to make him being identified as an Explorer 5.5 on Win2000 for instance.
VERY useful when web banking with a website only developped for M$ stuff.
Though, since some weeks none of them is granting me access to my web banking anymore ... even when identified as Explorer 5.5 on Win2000 or Explorer 6.0 on WinXP and so on.
