Thanks. I just ditched Mozilla from my dock.
Questions on Galeon:
- What resources are available? Is there an X resources list?
- How do you disable animated gifs?
Hmmm...Running Vasile's 'gat' on /usr/lib/mozilla/components/libnsgif.so
seems to do the trick. (Binary edit of NETSCAPE2.0 with 'no anim gif').
- Bugs. It does crash (several times at Google). Popups tend to
occur when editing a text box. But it's fast and light.
