"Does the world need yet another Web browser? Veteran Linux developer Peter MacDonald, who released the beta version of his BrowseX this week, thinks so."

"MacDonald, who's been working on the cross-platform BrowseX for about 10 months, started on the project while working on a spread sheet application and became frustrated about getting it to function on the Web using an existing browser. 'Delivering the application is very perilous, very difficult to do,' he says."

"MacDonald lists seven specific browser problems that BrowseX addresses on his "Why" page and more than 30 advantages on his "Pros" page. MacDonald's reasons for BrowseX basically come down to two issues he has with Netscape, however: the RAM needed to run it, and the lack of available source code."
