Slouching Toward Galeon 1.0 - page 4

When we first encountered it, we really, really wanted to like Galeon but it was still a little shy of the sort of features that would make it usable for us on a daily basis. This latest release, though, makes it an excellent tool that combines the rendering speed of Gecko with a clean, fast GTK+-based interface. If the developers had called it quits at SSL, authentication, and Java support, we would have been happy. As it is, they've gone several steps beyond and provided a browser that "just browses" but with some outstanding usability features that make it a true pleasure. Galeon's great.
