"On several occasions I have bemoaned the lack of a decent Web
browser for Linux. Netscape is quite possibly the worst piece of
software I've found in Linux."
"...Viable alternatives are few and far between. There are
several other browser projects, but none which are cross-platform
or are not tied to a specific window manager that don't have
shortcomings in one area or more."

years now. It's fast, sleek and is only really lacking Java
Java, this doesn't concern me. I personally think Java is the worst
thing to hit the Web since the BLINK tag."
