I just voted for Firefox since I recently installed 4.0beta1 (run from its folder).
Talking about Chromium, I find Chrome nice to see docs too since it renders pages elegantly (don't have it installed in antiX).
Links2 is very good from the console.

-Forgot to say, Iceweasel is as stable as it can be in my Debian Sid (also Chrome works very well).
For anyone interested in Midori, I like it but it's still improving very fast and I wouldn't recommend nothing less than the latest version (I had to compile it; didn't check if it's in the experimental repo).

as we know there are no of browser into the market. so each and every browser has own capability and its own functionality.browser stats are of limited use to designers. 1st, stats will vary from site to site, so it is only the stats for your sites which matter. 2nd, stats can be skewed by many factors, so the true numbers may be higher or lower than the numbers reported. 3rd, and most important, browser stats are really only useful to designers when deciding which browsers are so little used that they need no longer be supported: it may be entertaining to know, for example, how well Chrome, Firefox, and Safari are competing with Internet Explorer, but so long as the numbers are large enough that the browsers must be supported, the exact numbers are irrelevant to the design.

I just want to note that since my last post, I had taken some time to further familiarize myself with IceApe and it seemed like it could be a viable browser option for me-- if not for the lack of a Zoom Text Only option.

I just don't understand this; it is rare that I don't have to zoom text in order to make it comfortably-readable and enlarging the images only distorts them.

Also, there was a problem with importing and/or exporting bookmarks in the JSON file format that is the default in Firefox.

There are multiple ways to change font sizes with Seamonkey (a.k.a. the Debian Iceape browser). Same technique as Firefox: Ctrl + increases the font size, Ctrl - decreases the font size, and Ctrl 0 returns to the standard size. Using the Preferences menu (in the Edit section) you can change the font style and size, and set a minimum font size). Is that what you are looking for? Firefox, Iceweasel, Seamonkey, Iceape, Chrome, and Chromium all use these control sequences, for what it is worth.

Thanks for replying.

I was referring-to how in IceApe/SeaMonkey, using Ctrl +/- not only zooms the text but the entire page. (and doing that degrades and distorts all of the images on the page)

In contrast, Firefox and IceWeasel have a Zoom Text Only (View > Zoom > Zoom Text Only) option. When this is selected, Ctrl +/- affects only the text on the page but not the images.

I'll also mention that while it's been a long time since I tried Opera, I definitely recall it having an equivalent (or at least comparable) option.

I do not know of any option other than increasing the font sizes to change text size in Iceape or Seamonkey without also changing the size of everything on the page. That is apparently one feature that some of the other browsers have over the classic interface, though it is not that difficult to change the font size, but if you go back and forth on sizes, I could see where that would be slow and inconvenient. Perhaps setting a minimal font size that is at least readable would help matters somewhat.

I use Iceape because it's the default. I like it though because it is different. Like antiX . In my linux experience, I have not encountered any other distros with it. It works well, it does what its supposed to do, it is no nonsense and it makes my kids smirk with its name.

The one feature that I do miss; however, is the tabbed browser feature that Iceweasel/Firefox has. But other than that, I'm good with Iceape.

Cuttlefish, iceape does tabbed browsing, it just isn't set up that way be default. GO to edit, then preferences, then tabbed browsing and set it up however you like.

While we are talking about browsers, I've lately been using google-chrome. I used exoodles ( run from root cli) to set it up. It is very much improved in the stability department, and the menu entry now shows up correctly in the fluxbox menu under "internet".

I tried chromium from synaptic last night in M11 p1. I was really impressed at how quickly it rendered web pages.
