What happened Epiphany?!? If you think firebird is fast you should try Epiphany. And what about Elinks?

I had to vote for firebird because it's exactly what I want and nothing more.

Why isn't Internet Explorer on the list.

Internet explorer in a Linux forum?
My vote is for Opera.
Yes, it's proprietary, and yes, it does use more memory than Firebird, but it does some things that Firebird can't. (E.g. clearing all cookies, cache on exit. Tabbed browsing without the use of a IMHO buggy plugin. A handy thing at the bottom of the screen to tell you how fast a webpage is loading.)

Browsers for Linux. IE isn't a native Linux application. If we were here to vote for Windows applications, well, this wouldn't be a Linux forum and we'd also have Office, Dreamweaver and too many others to list in all the other categories.

Regards.

Maybe. But I would not use it as my main browser. I ran into quite a few sites that it was unable to load properly. Haven't had a problem with Epiphany loading any site. Thats the one I'm sticking with for now.

I voted for Firbird but if Links/Elinks (not lynx) had been listed I would have had a more difficult time deciding.
