You did not talk about w3m here ?

I use either w3m or netscape on my box here. Crashes are rare !!

If that's what you think mozilla is , then you are wrong. Mozilla is
the open source version of netscape and it relativly less memory
hogging as compared to netscape. But it is still in beta, so use at

P.S: This thread should either goto LIH or LIG. LIP is not the place for it.
Linux poses a real challenge for those with a taste for late-night
hacking (and/or conversations with God).
