OK so here's my browser report.
Well I've tried out Epiphany and my verdict is "Eh". It's a pretty boring browser. Not much to look at by way of eye candy, and it has damn few extensions. It's also annoying that history and cookies need to be cleared manually at the end of each session, instead of providing the option of clearing these things automatically (an option which is, oddly enough, available in the older Galeon). On the plus side, among the few extensions is AdBlock, and Flash videos seem to play just fine. Haven't had a freeze problem yet with Epiphany.
I also went back to my old friend Opera for a test run. Opera, while lacking AdBlock, does have this right-click function of "Block Content" which works virtually the same way. However, I do miss extensions - oh, sorry, "widgets" - such as Downloader Helper, Add to Search Bar and others. In Opera, you'll seldom find widgets of basic things of practical value, but you *can* get a widget of Chuck Norris facts and other such nonsense. It's the fastest browser I've ever had, but the extensions deficiency keeps me from making it my default.
Konqueror looks good - but I don't use KDE, so it's out of the question. EDIT:
Wrong, I can use Konqueror with Gnome. So I'll give it a try and report back later. Having to download a bunch of other things in order to support the browser makes me wary, though.
This leaves us with Firefox. Yeah, I'll be keeping it as my default. Mainly because of the vast array of valuable extenstions. But also because Firefox 3
looks damn good. Apparently, the beta version is available
for the brave souls who want to try it out. For some reason, I'm more adventurous with beta versions of OS's than browsers, so I'll wait for the stable version of 3. Until then, it looks like I'm sticking with Firefox as my default browser.
