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

Hi,

   Here is a link to "A simple script to install Internet Explorer 6 on Linux":
http://bylands.dur.ac.uk/~mh/wine-ie/

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