    Best Browser for Mandrake Linux?

    I am switching over (well maybe dual-booting) to Mandrake soon. What is the best browser to use? Opera? Netscape?

    Mozilla - it's Netscape without the marketing clutter. Opera is nice, but I tend to dislike it because of the ads.

    After a week of use, Konqueror seems to be pretty good. I just have to fiddle with the font settings a little to make it look right.

    Mozilla is a great program as well. I dont use it as often because Konqueror is the default browser. I don't know how to change it just yet!

    Konqueror is one of the best.... in my opinion.... Once they work out some of the bugs it will be the #1 browser for Linux users that use KDE.

    ...that use KDE.
    That's just the big difference.

    I'm using Mozilla on Mandrake, it runs superfine
    Plus I appreciate being able to share my bookmarks with my Windows part.

    Hmmmmm, well I can't say I have that much experience with linux but I have used the linux version of netscape, and it seemed pretty good to me, and it loaded much faster that the windows version ever did...

    Galeon is a mozilla based browser for use on GNOME env. It seems to work pretty good. I am using it 90% of the time now.
