The Gecko engine developed by the Mozilla Project, however seems to be very good. I find Galeon quite nice, as it uses Mozilla's quite capable HTML rendering engine, has its own well designed GTK-based GUI, and has little of Mozilla's bloat. Netscape Navigator <= 4.? has quite bad HTML rendering, and is disliked greatly by most web developers I know (not to condone it, but it's little wonder that many web sites are now "designed for Internet Explorer"). I would suggest to anybody still using Netscape 4 on a Unix platform that they try a replacement browser, whether that be Mozilla, Galeon, or something else (perhaps Opera or Konqueror). If you're looking for a replacement Internet mail client, you might like to try Mutt, Balsa, Sylpheed, or Evolution. -- MICHAEL WARDLE SGI Desktop and Sysadmin Software Adacel Technologies Limited To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-current" in the body of the message
