10 Alternative Web Browsers for Linux

Filed under
Software

While Firefox is arguably still the champion of Linux web browsers, it can sometimes be slow and get bogged down by sites like Facebook. As a result (and just because it’s fun), some people have started to search for alternatives. Here are 10.

Arora
Arora BrowserArora is a Webkit based browser written with the Qt UI framework. It’s surprisingly fast and pretty full featured. Arora has many of the features we expect in a modern browser, such as Flash blocking, ad blocking, private browsing mode, a bookmark manager, a history manager, privacy controls and even the Webkit inspector. Arora also runs on FreeBSD, Mac OS X, Windows, and Haiku.

Conkeror
Conkeror is an Emacs inspired Mozilla based browser. It features the same Gecko layout engine as Firefox, but there is no GUI, just Emacs style commands for navigating, searching, etc. If your fingers are programmed for Emacs, you might feel right at home in Conkeror. We doubt this browser will be a big hit with the average Joe, but Emacs fans will surely enjoy Conkeror.
