There’s a thread on Warren Ellis’ forum, Whitechapel – Webcomics Week (May 2009) for webcomics creators to advertise their stuff. Probably more interesting than asking forum members to list their favorites because it avoids the tired old list of most popular/notorious netchings (as Shachar would call them).

I usually have an automatic hostile reaction to allegations that Firefox on Linux is dead slow compared to the Windows version; however, I have to admit that I don’t have any point of reference, since it’s the only browser/OS combo I use.
However, Ovid’s mention of Midori, and Israel’s geekalicious demo of uzbl last night, made me pay attention. Midori is lightning fast, but when I try to visit youtube or facebook, it crashes. However, Epiphany is available in the Ubuntu repositories, just a
sudo apt-get install epiphany away, and it’s also based on webkit.
At home I just tried Arora, which is a Qt4 webkit-based browser.Has no Flash and is not that fast, which I guess just shows that a browser is only as fast as your internet connection allows.
