    there are several browsers in linux !
       based on gui or text they are .....

       text based browsers are also present in linux
    like links , mii-tools etc normally nobody prefers it
        GUI based versions of internet browsers are
       Netscape Communicator was older browser and welknown for linux users !

      Now a days If u are in GNOME Mozilla is best browser
      If u r using KDE Konqurer is the best !

     There are certain versions of opera , Kaaza also present just like u use in windows

      There is no much difference in thease browsers in linux and windows ! <same in appearance and functionality>

    Hi, IE doesnt exist in linux unless you use an emulator, for instance crossover office or wine. You can of course get firefox which is a good browser

       Here is a link to "A simple script to install Internet Explorer 6 on Linux":

       As the author mentioned, it is not supported and will be dangerous.
    Not recommended.
