What is the best way to run a newer web browser (firefox, chrome, etc) on an older linux (rhel5)? RHEL5 only works with firefox up to about version 17, which is not sufficient for all web sites. Assuming one cannot change the OS, but could install just about anything else, what is the best way to run a newer web browser?
The definition of Best is: least performance impact to machine, most functionality of a native browser retained and simpliest maintenance. For example, I could install VirtualBox and run Ubuntu and any browser I would like, but copy/paste from host to guest might be a problem and maintaining a separate Linux install would be somewhat painful.
