Internet Browsers

Just have a question about internet browsers. I have for a long time used Opera in Windows so when I installed Linux I did the same. I have noticed that there are a ton of browsers. Which one do people recommend or warn against. It seems that everything loads up slowly too right now, but I just installed yesterday. Thanks for any input.

As was said, you'll find lots of polls about this subject. I would just like to add that I have tried a lot of browsers and Firebird by Mozilla is the fastest one I have seen. There are tweaks which make my dialup load pages almost as fast as my satellite connection. It's really nice.

I beg to differ

I've tried Firebird and it's not the fastest. To me the fastest by far is Dillo. Not only extremely fast, but very simple. I just love it. Just like the Germans, they do things simply and they go all out.

Firebird is very nice compared to the bloated Mozilla, but i just like things simple, especially when i'm new to Linux.
