firefox
"I am now on 4 & it's the best due to security, privacy and plugin choice."
5
chromium-browser
"Fast and with a working AddBlock Plus! Still a few trust issues with Google. Now with improved privacy settings. It's so fast and slick I have to give it a 5. if used with xmarks & lastpass plugins to manage bookmarks and passwords, secure too. (Don't want Google datamining my bookmarks with Sync :/ )"
5
unetbootin
"I love it, used it when I was on Mandriva. (Used to be a bit hit and miss) It works as long as I format the USB drive FAT32 & set the boot flag. Also read the distro instructions for specific install requirements."
5
avant-window-navigator
"I like it, more options, plugins etc. than Docky. Looks good :)"
4
docky
"Easy, fast, looks great. Not as many options as awn (avant window navigator) but for some reason I love it! Need to have Gnome or compiz composting turned on."
5
arora
"Reminds me of a young Chrome, but the Adblock actually works properly!! Hooraa. Need's work, a master password etc. but one to watch out for...."

worldofgoodemo
"Fun demo with good graphics :)"

opera
"Lacks plugins...but seriously considering changing from (bloated) Firefox. A bit clunkie under Julia 32-bit, but smooth as silk under LXDE!"
4
anon-proxy

4
thunderbird
"Simple to use and configure, fast too :)"

3
gufw
