I know [E]Links is more advanced, and I should probably change to that. But, out of long habit, I still have Lynx set up as my URL handler for Pine. (Otherwise I use Firefox.)

The problem is that it's not pine your configuring, or at least not only pine. It's transfer agents such as fetchmail and getmail for recieving, and sendmail or postfix for sending, plus something like procmail to process the mail.

After that, you pretty much just have to configure pine to access your mail spool, (most likely /var/mail/yourusername), and setup whatever folders you want. Although I prefer mutt.

As for the browsers I use on a regular basis: Epiphany for general use, elinks for when I'm monkying around in the command-line and as a url handler for mutt.

I use Firefox pretty exclusively, regardless of the OS I am using. However as a webmaster I can not ignore the other browsers and so I have most all of them installed. I even have IE 6 on my Ubuntu desktop (thanks to Crossover Office), and of course it is more stable and renders faster under Linux than it does under Windows.

I have a question about IE on Ubuntu are you able to listen to launchcast on IE on Ubuntu and also are you able to use IE Tab extension on Firefox?

If so can you post a link on how to set up IE, I know it sounds crazy but I have my reasons. Can you make it work with WINE?

Interesting to see 0 users for Galeon, Mozilla, and Seamonkey.

I mostly use Firefox(but with the extensions I've added most Opera features so now it's more an opera-replica).

I also have Opera but because the plugins don't work perfectly, it doesn't blend in my gnome desktop,it's not FOSS,... I rarely use it.

I also use IE under Wine for 1 site that doesn't work in other browsers.

I love the full suite, with integrated email, newsgroup, and chat

I see that Opera is second behind Firefox and ahead of Epiphany in 3rd place.

Why is Firefox so popular? Epiphany is quicker and better in my opinion if i were to choose between them

But is Opera not clearly better than Firefox?

It's a matter of opinion.

Firefox and Epiphany are free software, Opera isn't.
Firefox uses XUL, Opera QT, Epiphany GTK+. (read, Ephy uses the system theme in GNOME)
Also, a lot of people use Firefox on Windows, so they are used to it.
The age-old arguement of Firefox being installed by default comes up.

I just tried and was able to listen to my radio station on launch without any issues.

Crossover Office is a comercial product and setting up IE is as easy as selecting it from a list under "Install Windows Software", in addidtion you can have multiple different version of IE installed.

I am in a bit of a hurry but there is a howto on setting up differenet version of IE is you do a google seach.

Admittedly, Opera has always been faster than Firefox. I've seen this on Mac, Linux, and Windows.

I haven't found adding extensions to actually slow Firefox down more than it already was, though.

fuscia

They just slow things down IMHO.

it depends on how many one uses and on what kind of equipment. on my old desktop, opera was slightly faster than firefox, but not enough to make it useable. i opted for a patched dillo instead. on my new laptop, firefox and opera are about the same speed. i can set up firefox more to my liking than i can with opera. and now, firefox opens quite quickly, where opera does not.

bruce89
June 28th, 2006, 06:12 PM
I've always had the impression that Opera is just the non-free Epiphany in terms of speed. (hides)
I mean, it is cross-platform, but it sacrifices OS integration for that, a bit like OO.o, and indeed Firefox.

Admittedly, Opera has always been faster than Firefox. I've seen this on Mac, Linux, and Windows.

I've actually found Opera to be faster than Epiphany... or at least seem faster (how long it takes the entire page to load may be the same).

If you don't need Firefox extensions, Opera's a much better browser. For some of us, though, Firefox extensions are gold... and some of those are missing from Opera.

I don't really care about "speed", I'd prefer the free software one, provided it meets my needs. I also couldn't live without the dynamic bookmark hierarchy creation system.

Anyway this is my opinion.

The problem is that it's not pine your configuring, or at least not only pine. It's transfer agents such as fetchmail and getmail for recieving, and sendmail or postfix for sending, plus something like procmail to process the mail.Pine can do POP3 natively, but it sucks at it. If you have an IMAP account, that works much better. I use fetchmail to grab my POP3 mail, but I let Pine do the outgoing SMTP directly (well, outgoing to Gmail's SMTP relay).

Setting up Pine for IMAP or POP3 is easy. Examples:

inbox-path={pop.gmail.com/ssl/novalidate-cert/pop3}inbox

incoming-folders=verizon {mail.verizon.net/pop3}inbox,
AOL {imap.aol.com}inbox

The nuisance part is that password storing is disabled by default. You have to compile it with "PASSFILE" defined to the name of a file, and then "touch" the file before starting Pine.

My outgoing email setup looks like this:

smtp-server=smtp.gmail.com/user=username@gmail.com/ssl/novalidate-cert

what web browser do you prefer?? I have Opera and Firefox on my zip drive and I am trying them out. I have been using Firefox for a long time and I have just recently tried opera.

Which do you prefer? Opera has cool widgets some is closed source (do you have to pay for the full version too?) and Firefox is open source and doesn't have widgets per se but has plugins like weather and stumbleupon.. which is by far one of the best plugins.

What are your preferences?

I used to be the hugest Opera guy before I switched to GNU/Linux.
I was all...'why would i want to download a bunch of extensions when everything i want is already in opera'. The whole extension idea didn't flow too well with me.

Then I switched to Linux:
I found that opera didn't really run that well on Ubuntu.

So i decided to give Firefox a try. At first I was just installing extensions that had opera features. Mainly sessions and gestures. Now i think extensions are brilliant. Opera is limited in features, Firefox is limitless. I get so much more out of Firefox than I ever could have with opera.

Built in spell check for all text areas in Firefox 2 has changed the web for me. No longer do I look like an illiterate kid because my spelling isn't that hot (what can I say, I grew up on word processors)

The sage rss extension is a billion times better than what is built into opera.

Opera's totally free (lower case F) these days, but I still prefer Firefox.

Opera is super fast, but looks like crap on my computer. It looks better than Epiphany, but not by much.

Quillz
March 9th, 2007, 03:55 AM
Overall, I tend to use Opera on any supported platform, which would include Windows, Mac and Linux. But if I need a more "optimized" browser for a specific platform, then it's usually IE7 on Windows, OmniWeb on Mac and Firefox/Epiphany on Linux. For some reason, I've never really liked Konqueror as a web browser.

Hmm... Are you using the default theme with Opera? Assuming you're on Linux, there are some very nice Ubuntu and Tango skins available for Opera on Linux.

March 9th, 2007, 04:00 AM
I prefer Opera, but use Firefox. Though Opera is great (really, really great), I find that I love my firefox extensions too much. They're really the one reason I still use this bloated POS. A little strong, yes, but it's true. It's unbelievable how much memory this thing takes up...and even though I have plenty to go around now (2 GBs), I'd still rather use the extra memory for cache or for other apps than give it to firefox.

The only thing I really wish for regarding this is that Opera become Free so that a good extension system can be developed for it.

I would also be happy if the Gecko engine could be ported to Konqueror; it's really only the XUL that makes firefox slow, right?

billdotson
March 9th, 2007, 04:13 AM

I have tried Opera, and I like the lightness and speed, but I simply can't live without my extensions. Firefox is what I use. I have used adblock for a couple years now, and when I have to look at the internet without it these days it drives me crazy. There are a LOT of blinky things.

Opera all the way, it does everything I want, including setting keyboard shortcuts in an easy way, mouse gestures when i'm on a simple 3 button mouse, torrent downloader if I can't be bothered to get an external. the skins are marvelous. The speed is blazing, absolutely blazing. It renders almost everything perfectly, it follows the most standards, it handles tabs the way they are supposed to be handled, and most importantly it feels warm and fuzzy to use. Firefox I always battle with to get it to do what i want, I actually prefer Seamonkey for some reason... IE ugh.... just to sucky, Konqueror is kind of nice imo, feels speedy. The others I havn't tried.

Right now, my favorite is Konqueror, although I tend to switch between Konqueror and Firefox every couple months. :) Konqueror is really fast, and it has everything I need, like tabs (obviously), window splitting, add-ons, ad blocking, mouse gestures, and, most importantly, good integration with KDE. It's also an excellent file manager and it's really configurable. :)

BarfBag
March 9th, 2007, 05:57 AM
Konqueror is the best browser on any platform. I don't know how that could be argued. It loads pages fast and can be made even faster with adjustments, everything is nice and smooth, it's very light weight, etc. I could go on for paragraphs.

I use Firefox, though. I've been using it in both Windows and Linux since the beginning, and still find it to be the best combination of features. Plus, a lot of sites recognize Konqueror as an "inferior" browser; while Firefox supports close to everything.

Well, IE6 was a good browser for 2001, but then gradually got worse because Microsoft did little, if anything, to innovate it. IE7 was a massive upgrade forward, although it only brought it up to par with Firefox 1.5 at best. But when you compare its speed and overall minimalistic design to Firefox, it is a worthy alternative.

For me, the memory usage of Firefox has never bothered me, but I've found that if you don't use any custom themes or extensions, it's really not that revolutionary of a browser. I'd much rather use Opera any day of the week, but I just wish it was easier to add extensions to it. Many Firefox extensions can be ported to Opera via custom JavaScript, but it's clumsy and doesn't always work. And not to mention that every time a given Firefox extension is updated, the custom JS for Opera must be completely rewritten.

I was a firm Firefox user in any OS or Linux distro I used (ie. the Hedgehog, Fedora, Dapper, etc.. and Win98), until I loaded up a
Knoppix 5.1.1 dvd and started playing around with browsers.

Now I use Epiphany whenever possible. On my slow dial-up connection, it really flies. I both like and dislike its simplicity, like the
menu button that lets me enlarge text easily ( I have really bad eye
sight.)

All my bookmarks are in an html document that I keep on my various desktops; I just load it into whatever browser I'm using. Works great and I have several different bookmark docs to use.

Iceweasel is Firefox rebranded (don't flame me) but it is not in terms of ideals. So if the subject of the thread is to know what functionalities users like the most, it's fine, but it doesn't reflect the way users think :)

Some users don't care if they use Firefox or Iceweasel, they just want to browse the web. Others avoid closed source like death ( I don't, but i have a crush on Iceweasel ;) )

I have found myself to use Opera and Firefox equally, recently I have been using Konqueror more often.

Where's Kazehakase? :(

Is Iceweasel in the Mozilla category? I don't think they would like that :P

The default # of poll options here at ubuntuforums.org is 10....so naturally there will be some options not listed...that is why the thread exist so you can list ones that I didn't have room to add... ;)

Firefox and MS Internet Explorer 4

IE4 installed itself in WINE when I installed Access 2000, and is even required for some tasks which I use but rarely. Still, it's there and it works (as much as in Win, anyway).

As most linux users do... I use firefox. Simply the best in rendering and simplicity. Excellent!

Firefox just about always.

I also ran IE6 using Wine for a while mainly for web page testing.

My choices go to Mozilla Firefox and Opera. They're my all time favorites.
