I was reading that article about XWebs, and was moderately impressed with what this guy is trying to achieve, until I read the following words . . . "The browser is based on the version of Microsoft Internet Explorer that third-party developers use . . . " So, he's foolishly chosen to build his supposedly groundbreaking new browser program from an existing browser app that's technically obsolete, and riddled with bugs and security holes. Instead of riding on the Gecko freeway, he's boarded the rickety old M$HTML rollercoaster!
