So far Mozilla firefox is the best for me with the useful plugins such as: Firebug, Greasemonkey, Google Toolbar, Delicious, StumbleUpon, and Google gears. Those plugins is safe me lot of time and fun when do browsing and working.
And second comes Google Chrome. I also like Google Chrome, because it fast in load time. And the most important thing is it won’t freeze the whole tab when one tab is frozen or not responding. And in Mozilla Firefox you need to restart the whole applications, even if it is a different windows. But i still need both of them 🙂
Since i have two computers, one is with Ubuntu OS and the other is Windows Vista. I can use both Firefox and Google Chrome in Windows without any problem. But in Ubuntu, there is no Google Chrome. So sad isn’t it? But don’t worry, there is an open source Google Chrome and you can run it in Ubuntu. It is called Chromium.
What is Chromium? Chromium is an open-source browser project that aims to build a safer, faster, and more stable way for all Internet users to experience the web, and it is based on Google Chrome. Since Google Chrome not yet release for *nix, you can try Chromium instead.
