You didn't get my point. I know that you can't use Galeon, it was just an example, of how easy a new Mozilla UI can be designet. Look at K-Meleon, they did it in ONE DAY!!! And yes, it's a Windows app. So I really would recommend you to take a look at K-Meleon (<http://www.kmeleon.org>). The current release is 0.4, I'm sure it will getting better fast (Galeon was crap in the beginning too, but now it's absolutely outstanding). And it's opensource, If something on the UI doesn't suit your needs, you could try to help them. Mozilla has to be Crossplattform, but of course native applications often work much faster. Also there is never an UI that suits the need of everybody. So take the fantastic Gecko engine (you admined, that it is alsmost ready) and use it with your favorite UI. Have fun.
