If you choose Mozilla, you will probably want to build it (assuming you
despise the generic arch packages, like me) with the WITHOUT_MAILNEWS
and WITHOUT_COMPOSER defines. They'll significantly decrease its size
and compile time.

Thanks so much for your past help. Of course, I have
another quetion. I've got X up and run Kdesk - coool.
However, the browser -I haven't configured - debating
on netscape. That brings me to install or not?
The bsd ports site mentions that mozilla is
comparatively large and that bsd\netscape 4.x has a
security hole and the modules for linux.7x may be
numerous, NOT TO MENTION TAKING ANY SUBSEQUENT
OVERLAYS IT MIGHT PRODUCE. So I thought I'd ask what
you think? I use bsd to emerse myself in a mixed
network and will ultimately use it as a backend
router/dns/mail server. Browsing would just be cool. I
guess what as a novice Iam asking is could I risk
netscape 4.x (would it compile and install for the
CDROM or do I risk linux? Nothing earthshaking.
Since your only reason for not using mozilla is the size, I'd go with
mozilla. Netscape isn't exactly small itself - even if you only use
I've also used skipstone, which is a very lightweight browser based on
the Mozilla rendering engine.
