Noobs is a convenient way to set up your Raspberry Pi with Raspbian (or another choice of OS).

I personally prefer to install Raspbian directly, but I think Noobs is considered to be the way that beginners install Raspbian.

Your browser question does depend on which Raspberry Pi you have, and what you intend to do with it.

Coming from Windows you'll find that NOOBS or NOOBS lite (which is an installer not an OS) is the easiest way to get Raspbian running. It's designed for the new/novice users as it should just be a simple, download, unzip, copy to get the files needed on to your blank SDCard.

Since you've asked the question, you are the ideal candidate as a NOOBS user. If you've used Linux before you could consider going with the plain Raspbian image.

The best I have found so far is Epiphany Web Browser, but I'm sure there are better, faster browsers out there :)
