Actually, there is also Phoenix (for Windows and Linux) and K-Meleon (for Windows only). Both are Mozilla-technology, but considerably faster and cleaner. Phoenix is XUL-based and builds right on top of current Mozilla code (it's not a branch), smaller, faster, more features than Moz. (Of course, it's a browser, not a suite, which helps.) Phoenix development has been fairly rapid but is now moving into hibernation for a while. K-Meleon is not XUL-based, but uses native widgets exclusively, but still with Gecko layout. It does appear to be a branch -- it uses "layers" instead of tabs, but the effect is the same, only the visual metaphor differs. I'm using both of them (on different machines, to avoid terminal confusion), trying to decide which I like best. So far, neck and neck, although I havce more experience with Phoenix. -- John Cowan To say that Bilbo's breath was taken away is no description at all.
