Here's a good little site that will help you decide which is the best browser for your distro:
Simply put that address in, and it will give you a score out of 555, along with a complete breakdown of which things work and which don't.
FWIW, I just got a score of 512 (but a little bit later only 508 so I'm not sure why there's a difference) with Google Chrome on Vista. However, I must admit I haven't tried it with my Pi distros yet.
It checks for various things such as -
- Parsing rules
- 2D graphics
- 3D graphics
- ....and many more
Also useful to know is that if you're having trouble getting videos to play in You Tube, you can simply go to:
and you can either choose your browser's default settings (which are probably not working) or click on 'Request the HTML5 player'.
Not all browsers are supported but it may help you to view the LeMaker videos at:
as well as of course many others.
Perhaps someone could do a little bit of testing and research and post here a matrix or table to summarise which browsers work with which distros - that will help the noobs a lot!!!
I have tried this, but only on my R-Pi, and with varying degrees of success. (Firefox aka IceWeasel seemed to do best but it wasn't perfect by any means.)
