Good list, assuming Chrome is already mentioned.
Flock is still unmentioned I think.
Doesn't Epiphany come in two flavors, mozilla and gecko engines?
I like using epiphany for quick and dirty stuff like opening links from text
programs like snownews, mutt, my home page of favorites and for system
browsing. It is fast an clean. I used to use Galeon for that.
I don't know what anyone sees in Opera. I paid to register the Win98 version
oh-so-many years ago. Maybe it was innovative in that limited browsing
environment. But it has just been an ever-growing PIA since. But they
still seem to think highly of themselves.
