Opera. Still find it fastest of the full fledged browsers for an old and weak PC. Chrome is also good in that regard but it's poor security makes it a no go for me.

The other one I like to use for simple tasks is Jumanji.

I use chrome, as it has all my bookmarks there, on every machine I log on to, or phone, or...whatever.

I also try links2 some times, and netsurf-fb when I am not in x, even if it is a little wierd

At the original time of this survey, I was using (and recommending) the use of Iceape rather than Iceweasel or Firefox. My reasoning at the time is that a single Iceape instance at that time was consuming less memory resources than a single Firefox instance, and yet if you are running a Firefox instance AND some other Email client, so much the more so.

A lot of people now run Web-based clients (I often do, too) but when I run a browser, most often I am using a Mozilla-based browser, and when I run on antiX (especially antiX Core), it is nearly always my own selection of the seamonkey-nightly binary, as opposed to Iceape.

I do frequently run Google Chrome, too, especially when I am using Windows 7, where I nearly always replace Internet Explorer with either Firefox or Google Chrome in the work environment. At home, I am much more likely to stick with nightly builds of either Firefox or Seamonkey.

So recently it doesn't matter much which browsers are included; I generally grab my own browsers anyway.

Chrome, Firefox, Midori, Qupzilla. If and when Opera ever puts out an updated Linux version of their browser, I'll start using it again. I like the newer Opera browser under Windows and OS X.

Thanks for the info. 64-bit works for me; that's all I use now. 'buntu support may not be an issue; I've used other apps (e.g. Rainlendar) that were advertised being for 'buntu but worked well under vanilla Debian. You do have to be careful though.

Edit: Bummer...I just downloaded it and attempted to install it under my CrunchBang 11 instance and it requires libc6 > 2.15. Should work under my antiX instance though. :D

Try linking your libc6 to libc6-2.15.

@fatmac: Do you have a link to a reference? I'm not sure what you're suggesting or how to do it.

Sorry, not been here for a few days, try 'man ln' in a terminal for the whole story.

Code:
ln -s <what> <where>

Another way to say the same thing:

ln -s /original/file /new/link

Oh, okay, so you're basically saying create a soft link. I've done that a few times. I'll have to do some research on how to have more than one version of libc6 installed. I know libc6 is an important file and I don't want to hose my system.

Discovered a new one recently via a post over at the CrunchBang forums:

https://vivaldi.com

It's based on the Google Chrome browser and one of the developer's was one of the original developers of the Opera browser. Vivaldi is a really nice spin on the Chrome browser. The only annoying thing I've encountered so far is that the text size changes for unknown reasons sometimes while typing on a site. Other than that, the browser is really nice to use IMO. I believe it currently will only work in 64-bit environments.

Oh, another annoying thing. You are prompted to save passwords when you log on to a site. There doesn't seem to be a way currently to disable that functionality. You don't have to save a password, but being prompted each time is annoying.
