            Re: nice
            Requireing GNOME libs isn't much of a limitation.
            Besides, how many useful programs can you find that
            requires Qt, but not KDElibs?
            Actually, I think it is more important to give IE a run for
            its worship as quickly as possible and worry about
            not needing GNOME libs later.

            Well just what the Linux world needs -- a graphical web browser.
            Too bad it requires the GNOME libs from the start and not as
            a addon feature [like xchat does]. From my point of view,
            Mozilla is a dead end.
