what browsers come included in the latest debian distribution package?
If you've installed the "debtags" package ("apt-get install debtags"), you can use
debtags search --short "web::browser && use::browsing"to list all the packages that provide web-browsing software. On my Debian Stable, that brings up 29 packages. There are a couple in that list that aren't really browsers, but that's the fastest way I know to get a pretty thorough list.
The other question is if anyone can point me to something of an article nature regarding open-source browsers and security? I am finding that companies will know simply block access to anything but ie or if you are lucky firefox, with the claim that the browsers suggested for Ada / section 508 / w3c type access are a security risk.
Most of the articles I know about compare the big-name browsers (IE, Chrome/Chromium, Safari/Webkit browsers, and Mozilla derivatives including Firefox, Iceweasel, Iceape, Galeon, etc). I don't think I've seen any reviews of security on the more obscure (whether GUI or console) browsers. However because of their rarity, there's a bit of security-by-obscurity since they're such tiny attack targets.
