Apart from us Mozilla loving geeks who is gonna use K-Meleon, it offers nothing IE doesn't have (except better standards support, but the average user doesn't think about that). I can see the benefits of the likes of Galeon as the gnome project didn't have a decent native GTK browser but K-Meleon just seems a waste of time.

Sorry this sounds like a troll, but I can't see the average user downloading what looks so much like IE, really I do hope this project succeeds as I think it's a great example of how a native app can embed Mozilla and as long as the contributors are doing it because they want to rather than seeing themselves with a major market share then good luck too them.

Positive things - I managed to get my Halifax <http://www.halifax-online.co.uk/> banking working fine as well as the back and forward navigation problems I was having in Netscape 6.2 on this site <http://www.monkeyontoast.com/menu/index.htm> working fine in KMeleon. I don't know if this is fixed in the underlying Mozilla code or KMeleon handles these things differently.
