But in browser terms, for a long time it’s been Mozilla’s Firefox.
So while listening to the above mix (dj masturbation), here’re the destructions to install the latest (html5 capable!) Firefox 5 to Ubuntu

Mozilla Firefox 5 is the latest version of the Firefox web browser, released on June 21, 2011.This was the the first edition under the new faster-release regime Firefox kicked off in early 2011.

New features

Even though the GUI has not been changed, Firefox 5 features:

Improved HTML 5 and CSS3 support
Improved overall performance
Visibility of Do-Not-Track option has been increased (disabling the ability for advertisers to track browsing habits and install cookies on the computer)
Stability and security improvements

How to install firefox 5 on ubuntu

Open the terminal and run the following commands

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-security/ppa
