I wonder if there might be a Linux browser???

It seems the only thing preventing me from using my [older] Linux Puppy is... [the] ...obsolete Internet browser enforcement for most likely than not, gathering information for advertisers.

Now, that's a huge image I've posted to Pinterest.com

The graphic speaks to my PC having been upgraded to 64-bit.

With 32-bit compatibility my Wine isn't performing but I hadn't planned on this post but for the image. While on the topic--any clues?

Yes, the folder says "LinuxLite" and that's another load on the drive. It's the only one so far that runs my very old CorelDraw8 without a glitch.

It helps if you tell us exactly which Puppy you want to upgrade the browser in. Sometimes missing libraries must be added for modern browsers to work in older Puppies, and that can be a monumental hassle. Better to upgrade to a newer Puppy that comes with a newer browser.

Very Happy Hello,
Yes, there is... Many...
I once released a Puppy Linux with 12 browsers.
If your question relates to running a modern browser on an older puppy it's an almost insurmountable problem.
However the latest Puppies will run the latest browsers with ease.
It all has to do with which libc and which gtk version the puppy has a built-in.. older puppies ran older versions of both.. newer puppies run the most up-to-date versions..
So in short, as an answer to your most "generic" question, yes...

Certainly the links browser is for linux!
It can be used in CLi or GUI mode.

Manual is here: http://links.twibright.com/user_en.html
