Xfe, hands down! Fast as lightning, weighs nothing, and it has a lot of options.

Konqueror - comprehensive, snappy, user-friendly, solid and reliable.

Konqueror is what I use, though Krusader is also very nice. KDE apps with IO-slaves are far ahead of the game in this kind of things.

ROX beats them all easily. The fastest, and very configurable.

The mosul started the jihad.
The buddism have never started wars for their religion.
First of all, Truang An, you need to change this sig because it is inflammatory and this is not a religious forum in which to discuss your evangalism. Secondly, you need to visit . Finally, you know that Buddhism doesn't have a central structure the way that The Church in Europe did during the time of the crusades, but it does have political leaders -- kings and emporers who are / were viewed as Buddha reborn. I'll make the case that when a man calling himself Buddha declares war on his neighbor, that's a Buddhist religious war.

Please change your sig. It's inappropriate.

Sadly, it seems to be not actively developed anymore, but Evidence is my favorite.
