Mozilla's OK.

Are there other browser for Linux? What are their advantages?

All opinions are just mine -

Konqueror - nicely integrated, fast, low resource use
Opera - very fast rendering, very configurable, very easy on resources and frequently improved
Galeon - easily customised, based on Gecko, as is Mozilla
Netscape - Mozilla with ads...

There are more - - here's a page with some other opinions.

I just installed Opera 7.1 on a Dell Inspiron 8000 running Mandrake 9.1 and like it very well. I also use Opera on a windows machine.You can get a free download from for windows and Linux.

I bought Opera a while back (the multi-os pack, since I was buying it mainly for Windows), and it's fine. My browser of choice on Linux these days is Firebird.
