"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."
