Best Install for Mozilla in Linux
 
http://www.scottbolander.com/mozilla-xft.html

Found this and installed the 1.6 using the

http://www.scottbolander.com/mozilla...staller-tar.gz

With easy to use instructions and I nice gui install I must say I have never had the fomts in Mandrake look so nice while web browsing before.

Now I do have several windows true type fonts installed but the antialiasing really does the trick.

You could try the mozilla firefox browser

I have run Mozilla for quite sometime. I tried firebird for a while in windows but it seemed to be much less polished or finished than mozilla. I like the built in editor in Mozilla - Does firefox come with an editor?

I use nvu for editing sites (is based on mozilla composer)

How is Nvu different from Mozilla Composer?
Mozilla Composer was created to bring HTML editing capabilities to the Mozilla Internet Suite. Nvu takes that basic functionality to a new level by adding integrated web site management, better form and table support, better browser compatibility, etc

Thats because it's only v0.8, I use the gtk2/xft version of firefox all the time now and it just walks all over the Windows version and other browers.

1.6 of Mozilla seems very nice to me as well. I thought that all firebird - firefox was is a stripped down version of Mozilla with no mail news editor bundled in. It must be basically the same as the core browser in Mozilla because it handles things very much the same.

I just didn't like the way the default browser was set up. I always liked clicking on the left little tab button and having a new tab pop up. In firebird you would get a large menu instead. The download manager in Mozilla was better than Firebirds and to get firebird working better I had to install extra parts and peices. Doing new installs weekly or more often I didn't want all of the troubles. So far with Mozilla all I have to do are a few pluggin installs and the default browser settup works well for me.

I must say that the antialiased fonts really make quite a differnece in appearence though.
