Just to show you it can be done...

Yes, that is Konqueror, running natively on Windows Vista Home Premium... and yes, I am using it to post this message.

 

As for Opera on Linux/MIPS... if they have a version, they're not showing it on their download page. Maybe their embedded browser, but certainly not their general purpose browser. (And even then... MIPS is a big area; there's little-vs-big endian, O32 vs N32 vs N64, glibc vs uClibc...etc.)

Firefox for me.

Chrome and opera have similar features but the compatibility of firefox is great and I'm used to it :p

I like FF best, IE 7 seemed ok, for some reason Opera just gave me the shits (maybe I need more practice), but having seen this post, I'll go give Chrome a go on an old pc.

 

I'll be back (so to speak) and let you know.

 

 

Back - Hmm, on Chrome now, at this stage, I'd give it 7/10, the learning curve is not to steep, I'll give it a ago for a week and see.

Mine would be Chrome, however you can't middle click to scroll.

 

Firefox gets my vote.

Download the Channel Changer

And choose the beta channel (its up to v2.0.169.1), It can middle click scroll. And has full screen mode and does full page zoom, not just text.

 

 

 

V2 of chrome is me. Was running the Dev channel for a while, but that was a bit much, near weekly updates is fun for a while, but you never know what is about to be fixed/broken.

 

Beta Chrome is awesome though.

I cant leave opera. Its zoom and high contrast features for the reading imparied (myself), built in torrenting, built in pop3, built in IRC, mouse gestures, adblock without extension, 'toolbar links' to websites, smaller memory footprint than FF, I just cant leave.
