"...Enter galeon, a GNOME/GTK-based browser that has taken the Gecko rendering engine (Mozilla's heart) and put it to work in a small, fast browser that does nothing more than render pages, store bookmarks, and provide all the speed of Gecko in a remarkably small bundle."

"...The inevitable comparisons to how long it takes Netscape Communicator to drag itself to the desktop caused a second round of more speculative thinking. There are times when an 800-pound gorilla of a browser is just fine, especially when it's crammed to its eyeballs with all the features you have to have to so much as order a paperback on the Web."

"On the other hand, when you just want HTML rendered and you wouldn't mind looking at the pictures on the page you're planning to read instead of resorting to Lynx, something less cumbersome than a "browser suite" is a pretty attractive proposition."
