alternate web browser etc...

Hi to Everyone,

I wish to install an alternate web browser, else than the firefox clone (iceweasel v3.0.6) that I already have. Iceweasel does fulfill my needs and expectations, but, for various reasons, I wish to also have something else too, one of these reasons being that it would be initiated with alternate identities, mail addresses etc.. In the meantime, this would allow me to test something else, which is the reason why I don't plan to install 'Netscape' which is about the same as Firefox/Iceweasel, sometimes using same conf files, bookmarks and so on.

Why not 'Opera', even if it is not free (I doubt if it is very expensive) ? I may miss the knowledge of something better that Opera...

As for newsgroups, I also wish to experiment something new. Up to now, I have rarely used "Firefox" for usenet news, as I preferred "pan". I've heard of "pine" for newsgroups, but I heard that it was kind of hard to configure ; this may be wrong. For e-mail, I used to use "staroffice mail" in the old days when that did exist (So 5.1 and 5.2), and, ever since then, I am using Thunderbird, that is, Icedove on Debian Lenny. Alternately, I plan to use 'mutt', which is already up and running on my systems ever since 2005 or so, of which I have so far only made I an irregular use. Willing to use it again, I lately spent some time reconfiguring exim4, but it now seems to operate all right.

Thanks in advance for your insights and advices

Happy New Year to Everyone !
