Looking for the best way to build a flash website? Here's six alternatives to IE, Firefox and the rest
Whether it's for money making or simply sharing something with the world, a website can place your ideas on a stage with an audience that you won't find in the West End. While back in the day website building used to be reserved for only those with code writing skills, this day has passed.
We've selected six of the best alternative browsers, choose your weapon, and then read below to find out how you can build your very own website.
BEST FOR… SOCIAL NETWORKING
Flock's clever sidebar lets you drag and drop pictures, articles and links into feeds for Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and the rest.
BEST FOR… MULTI TASKING
Another open-source project, this ambitious browser is a one-stop-shop web portal, HTML editor and straightforward email client all in one.
BEST FOR… SPEED
A swift, Linux-based browser, Netsurf boasts a pop-up and ad blocker but not much else. This is all about stripped-down, lightning-fast simplicity.
BEST FOR… CUSTOMISATION
The abiding joy of this very competent browser is that it lets you change or move every menu, tool bar and icon to your heart's content.
BEST FOR… MAC USERS
Camino's open-source browser gives a similarly fluid OS X experience to Safari, but has more user-made add-ons than Apple's official browser.
BEST FOR… EMAIL
This Mac OS Chrome clone's USP is that it lets you sign into multiple accounts from the same website – Gmail for example – in multiple tabs.
