any other browser for redhat?

hmm, considering that my network card is working.. i can connect to web sites now... but i just noticed that mozilla's text are kind of rugged looking...

is there any other browser i can use other then netscape mozilla? and a fix to the ruggedness of text in mozilla?

you can try konqueror, galeon, opera and lynx (which is a text based browser)... many browsers to choose from.. not sure on your rugged mozilla though, mine does fine by default. have you tried messing with the font settings ?

i've had that problem, i personally just told mozilla to force the page to be displayed in a lcertain font. it's under preferences somewhere.

but personally... GALEON!

Rough, ugly fonts are a common gripe, especially within browsers. Give the Font De-uglification Mini HOWTO a read for some possible solutions.
