11.5 Web Browser

Once you've established a PPP connection to the Internet, whether via wvdial or pppd, you can surf the Web using a Linux browser. In addition to browsers written specifically for Unix and Linux, you can use the popular Netscape Navigator web browser, which includes a mail client, newsgroup client, HTML editor, and other features.

As you can see in Figure 11.17, the Linux version of Navigator is very similar to the Microsoft Windows version. So, if you've used the Microsoft Windows version of Navigator, you'll find configuring and using Navigator to be quite straightforward. To configure Navigator, click on Edit -> Preferences. Then specify your identity and that of your mail and newsgroup servers, along with any other special preferences you desire.
