If your a keen web developer like me you probably want to test your sites with a few other browsers besides the default one in Elementary, Midori. Even if you are not a developer you may prefer another and i'm going to show you how.
Now to installing our new browser, in our terminal:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install firefox
If you want to install chrome as well, in our terminal:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install chromium-browser
Remove Midori (Optional)
Open up a terminal and type the following commands:
sudo apt-get purge midori-granite sudo apt-get autoremove
Setting Your default Browser
If you didn't remove Midori and you want to make either Firefox or Chrome your default browser:
- Click on Applications (slingshot)
- Click on System Settings
- Click on Applications
- Click on the Web Browser Drop Down and choose your default browser.
