Web browser!
http is only a one file transfer protocol, personally I find that using wget works great
Code:
wget -qO - http://puppylinux.com/index.html

Mind you Barry's html has a lot of white space so it is helpful to pipe it through sed to strip out the blank lines. Laughing

I like Opera, but i can't believe that Internet Explorer is not
up there. It's the most compatible with all the websites : )


While an sfs could accomplish that, I am not too thrilled with IE, not to mention that it is NOT directly compatible with Linux. Also, IE barely works on the websites I visit or maintain (it can be a headache to script in code to make a website viewable in IE with CSS). The only reason I can think of for IE not being listed is because it is not directly compatible with Linux and hence could never be installed without use of an emulator. Besides, last I knew, IE7 couldn't pass the Acid2 Test (at least IE7 on my wife's XP laptop couldn't).

Hmmm... I'd like to see what kind ov results this survey would get if it were taken now. Seeing as it is four(4) years later.
Besides, a new browser has joined the scene: Chromium/Google Chrome.

Dillo, Puppy current default web browser, has a nice display, but it can't run javascript, the client side scripting required by many sites. So I can't use Dillo for my daily browsing.

Midori can run javascript, and still light and fast. Although I may won't use Midori for something related to security thing like online-banking*, I can use it for my daily browsing.

So I think I'll vote for MIDORI, but it's not in the list ^_^'

---
*for 2 reasons: (1) I don't know about its security, using Big Browser like Chrome or Firefox is wise (2) I don't know how to do online-banking

I don't have an answer to this question as I like to have at least two browsers on my machine at any one time. Usually I have one of the Mozilla browsers (Firefox or Seamonkey) on, and Opera as well, because I think Opera handles downloads better.

I'm impressed by the private tab feature Opera has, where you can choose not to leave any trace of your activities when opening a new tab.

http://help.opera.com/Linux/12.10/en/tabs.html#private

These days I'm tempted to install a lighter, non-Flash or Java browser such as Dillo too because a lot of web pages now take a long time to load otherwise.

How about epiphany? Imho it's even more efficient than Firefox - I use it on my Debian machine. Noone ever considered Epiphany?

Come to think of it - anything with the option to turn off flash (although it is sometimes necessary) would be great, as it is slaughtering my old pc, making web browsing a nasty experience.


I've tried epiphany several times, and unfortunately it keeps crashing. I don't think it's very stable (on my machine at any rate). I agree with your last line though - even with broadband, page loading can get slow especially in the evenings when a lot of people are trying to get online at once.

I don't think there is a best browser. I use Opera for streaming video, because it seems to be more stable with less hickups. Chrome gets used for everything else

Sub_title: chrome for multi and syncing
 

For multi-device syncing, Win and Linux (which is the reality for many), travelling and home/office purposes, Google chrome seems practical solution to many issues, once set up. Thanks to those updating the puppy chrome versions.
