The Best Linux Applications: Communications & The Web
This is the third in our week-long series in which we're asking you to nominate your favourite Linux applications.
Once again, your comments to yesterday's post made for excellent reading. We didn't have such high hopes for Office and Productivity applications, but your insights have shown us that Linux has a wealth of such applications available outside of LibreOffice/OpenOffice - many of which have already made it on to some of our systems!
Today's category is Communications and the Web. A number of people have already made reference to web browsers and their plugins in the previous categories, along with a number of web applications that have become central parts of people's work flows. This seems to mirror the common trend of people doing more in their browsers, especially as web standards advance and browsers become quicker.
In today's comments, we want to hear about the programs that make using the web on Linux the best possible experience. Your favourite web applications, browsers and extensions, instant messaging, email and VoIP programs are all included - and, as always, feel free to give this a broad interpretation!
Over to you...
