WEBBROWSER NOW? I hear ya, I want it now too!! I want it NOW for win32/beos/gtk/kde/cde...

GTK only? what about mac/win32/beos/...

chrome sucks? yeah I know, but it using the same "superfast" layout engine being used to display html, I hope it improves by beta (otherwise I wouldn't have much hope in the layout engine as well), but you got to give it credit that it works on the above mentioned OSes AND GTK+ , and if you design a UI for moz it will look the same on all the OSes mentioned above. Where as with gtk+ you will have to port GTK+ to other OSes, and believe me on some OSes (like mac) GTK will suck.

no news/mail/irc...? news/mail yeah, maybe they could have forgo those, but "most users" ;- have come the expect them. As for irc, go blame Robert Ginda for contributing it. (Rob care to comment? :-) )

seriously if you really want GTK based moz, help out with the GTKMozilla project: <http://www.lysator.liu.se/~alla/gtkmozilla.html>

And while you're at that, do come out with a better UI design and post it here/ I for one will be interested. :-)
