    Making a ‘list’ is one thing, but you need to start actually linking to the software’s web site!

    How is Chrome and Opera open source?

  3. Kristof says:

    Chrome is not open source. #instantfail

  4. Axl says:

    Please note that two of the listed browsers (Chrome & Opera) are not open source.

  5. There are some browsers you are missing: curl and wget. Both are useful for scripting clients for websites.

    • Ravi Saive says:


      Yes wget and curl are both powerful CLI tools, but this article is meant for web based browsers not for CLI ones..Will definitely write one more article on CLI based web browsers..stay tuned.

    And also Slimjet browser is very fast

  7. Ralph says:

    a) Google Chrome is not open source – it is based largely on Chromium, however does not ship with source code, and includes additional proprietary code.

    b) Opera is not open source.

  8. Louis Tim Larsen says:

    The title is misleading as Google Chrome and Opera are both closed sourced browsers. “11 Best Web Browsers for the Linux Desktop” would be a more appropriate title :)

  9. bungalow says:

    Title says 11 Best OPEN SOURCE web browsers, graphic shows 13 Best web browsers, Article talks only of 9 web browsers, and the first one of these is not even open source. Talk about bad journalism.

    Why did you kipped over Vivaldi? Very quick responsive browser for Linux.
