Both Opera and Galeon are great.  Unfortunately, Galeon is also 
vulnerable to the browser crashing bug that is giving Mozilla users fits 
right now.  I know that most *nixers would rather have single components 
that do their jobs really really well as opposed to the Mozilla approach 
of having all components function in a servicable (well, better than 
just servicable in my opinion) manner; however, as a converted Windows 
user, I like having everything available to me from a unified interface 
and a single (though monsterous) download.  I also like using a big 
clunky IDE instead of vi, so I think it may just be a matter of taste.

They're so close to having a final release, and I wish them the best of 
luck.  I just hope this most recent bug isn't a show stopping project
