CentOS 6 & Firefox 10 - Modern becomes you
CentOS 6 is arguably one of the least expected best distributions for your desktop. While it is intended for servers, it does a splendid job at home, too. It's fast, light, stable, robust, and supported unto eternity. And with some medium-hard work, you can significantly improve the overall look & feel and productivity.

To name a few, Java, Flash, LibreOffice, Chrome, newer versions of Firefox.
Firefox. Indeed, in my first pimping article, I explained how you can install Firefox 4 and higher on CentOS. Since then, a handful of repositories came to life, also offering binary builds of modern versions of Firefox. But recently, none of that is necessary. With the release of Firefox 10, the browser is available in the official CentOS repository as a standard part of the software update process.
