"Christophe Thibault, known for his work on K-Jöfol, has released a very simple Web browser dubbed K-Meleon, which uses the much anticipated Gecko rendering engine also found in the upcoming Netscape 6. What's different about K-Meleon however, is that it has the look and feel of Internet Explorer. "I have always liked the new Gecko engine, however the clunky and bloated XUL interface of Mozilla has turned me (and other Windows users) away from the browser," Christophe told BetaNews, "so I decided to write my own on a bored and cloudy day." Taking a break from coding Winamp 3, Christophe spent Sunday writing K-Meleon with great success. The browser has a much familiar and quick IE interface, along with the speed of the advanced Gecko engine."

"I made [K-Meleon] into what I could for one day of work," writes Christophe, "I hope that some people will take the source code and make improvements."
