Thumbs up Internet Browsers for Linux

Hello again. I tried another modem and I'm finally able to connect to the internet from Linux!!! (even though Windows won't detect it and it only runs at 14.4, its a start!).

Since I do have a slow computer all around, I am wondering what browser you recommend I try. For example, Netscape is like KDE, too many options that I'll never use. What is the internet-brower variation of XFCE? Something that can display graphics and do java and javascript, but not much more ?

Oh yes, there are numerous "What's your favorite..." threads out there. The forum search surely is a nice thing, use it.

pssst... My, uhm, biased opinion: Opera, if you want a browser that renders the pages really fast, Galeon if you want a nice, simple, yet a feature-rich browser.

It depends on your PC power.

For that 14.4kbps, I'd rather see only text. lynx
