    i don't know about fonts, but here are some good ones:

    firefox: all around good browser, very good support for plugins and the such
    Opera: Fast
    lynx: don't use this unless you are stuck without X
    glinks: good lightweight browser
    dillo: another good lightweight browser

    You should use Firefox. It's better than all other web browsers, and you can install plugins for it.

    As far as I know, Opera is not free. I agree with using Firefox, it has good plugins and themes. You could also go with Mozilla, which has a whole suite of programs (email, html editor, chatzilla...). For surfing from the command line, try elinks (Enhanced links), which can be pretty useful sometimes.

    Or mozilla.

    Its the kinda like firefox, firefox was based on it (i think...). It supports tabs, is quick and allows file browsing. No mouse gestures, but hey.

    Mozilla does support mouse gestures (I think). At least I have it set up so Ctrl + MouseScrollDown is Back, and Ctrl + MouseScrollUp is Forward.

    And it's not really good as a file manager - you can view files but you cannot delete them, move them, copy them, etc.

    That should be direct link to download Opera for Red Hat.

    (If for some reason it doens't work go to www.opera.com and choose: Download)

    If you have problems with installing rpm package, download sources (*.tar.gz usually)

    And compile it manually.

    (Download sources for Red Hat from here http://www.opera.com/download/get.pl...yes&sub=marine)

    I recommed Firefox though.

    Here's a link to download Firefox in english and for Linux.
