A New Web Browser

November 24, 2006 at 12:04 am Leave a comment

Don’t get me wrong, Firefox is awesome. I just wanted a change. (and possibly something a little lighter)

The first browser I tried was dillo. I was lightweight, but couldn’t handle the first page I threw at it. (The admin page for my blog) I got some error, and something about trying experimental alpha code. Okay fine, I’ll try again in a year or two. The interface, while unattractive, was streamlined and uncluttered, but it just felt weird having all that screen space! O_o (really it’s only about 30 pixels)

The rest of the other promising browsers required GNOME dependancies.

The solution: a UI mockup and some Firefox trimming. I think I’m going to keep firefox though.
