I think before I begin I should mention that I don't use
Netscape on Linux anymore. Netscape is an ugly,
bloated sack of beans and I'm glad to be rid of it.
Instead (as many before have mentioned
commenting on this editorial) I use Konqueror. Now
Konqueror does not just "show promise". It's one of
the best damn browsers I've seen. I hate Netscape
due to it's speed, Mozilla is just silly, Opera is
wishful thinking, but Konqueror is light, fast, renders
very quickly and carries over the widgets of my
I used to use GNOME, then WindowMaker, then just
straight Enlightenment but now I use KDE2 full time
because it's truly the best thing Linux has in desktop
today. Having it's own fully featured web browser
that not only compares to Netscape (as the "other"
browser defaulting on Linux) but it beats it.
There are a few bugs yes, but hey it's open source
software, there's always a few. They accept that, fix
them and move on. I don't think we're losing the
browser war. The war ended a long time ago.
Windows users will use MSIE, and I think Linux
users will just eventually use Konqueror. Mozilla is
allowed to go die now.
Thank you. :)
I mean my God
The site looks great in Konqueror, but a thing I liked about freshmeat was that it wasn't loosely organized. I liked the borders around each software release. The new logo kicks butt, but how about a little structure? :)
