               sufficiently advanced technology : the gathering

         Far be it for us to intimate that MOZILLA has been hijacked
         by the same naive completeness fanatics that collapse so
         many free software projects into development black-holes,
         but ... oh come on, two years and counting? Seventy
         megabytes of swap? Per *window*? Hello? Is there some kind
         of AOL/ crack cocaine stock-swap going down at Mountain
         View? The beauty of Open Source, though, is that say you
         *could* do without Mozilla's built-in WYSIWIG HTML editor,
         Mail handler, News reader, IRC client, xterm replacement,
         run-time XML UI interpreter, cross-platform high-level C++
         widget set, and re-implementation from scratch of
         Microsoft's entire COM system, you can. And, thank God,
         someone has. GALEON is a Gnome application that uses Chris
         Blizzard's minimalist wrapper around the Mozilla HTML
         rendering routines. It's little. It's fairly stable. It
         takes less than an hour to load. It lets you look at Web
         pages. Think of it as salvage.
                      - you'll still need to download Mozilla for now
                                - we're on a mission from God. Still.
