I tried Amaya once and uninstalled it in about an hour. I agree with the post that said Amaya may be very standards compliant but unusable for the end-user.
My first impressions of Amaya were not good at all. Maybe it deserves a second look, and maybe my judgements were too hasty. But this brings up another point: that there is a point to all of Mozilla's "features" - i.e. the password manager, good bookmark management, cookie management, the composer, the mail client, and so on. The reason these "features" exist is that they enhance the browsing experience,and make browsing more pleasant. One reason I don't use K-Meleon is that it is too bare, too grey. And hey - I am not using some spiffy, super-fast machine that can afford to run badly written and slow software. So, the "K-Meleon is faster" argument does not work for me. I don't care how fast a browser is if it does not make my life easier. This post is not against K-Meleon; it is meant to show that to make a "useable" browser, you need more than standards compliance and speed. It has to make the browsing experience easier. And if it looks pretty too, well then you've got a Mozilla!
