Besides the web browsing big shots like Internet Explorer and Firefox, there are other minor, more experimental web browsers you can try out, like Midori.

Midori is based on WebKit, the same layout rendering engine used by Safari, Mac's default web browser. It offers standard features such as a tabbed interface, support for bookmarks, browsing history and a customizable built-in search engine. It's also surprisingly fast, and doesn't require installation – you can even run it from a USB key.

On the downside, you can easily tell Midori is still under development: the program doesn't support Flash yet, and some options are disabled or simply don't work. In any case, a handy standalone browser well worth a try,

Midori is a fast, lightweight web browser based on WebKit that doesn't require installation, though still in development.
