Internet & Networking A few days ago we read about the Deli Linux, which aims to fill-in the gap of Linux distros in the 486/586 machine range by running lightweight/older applications. The disto comes with Dillo and Links as its browsers, but I bet there aren't many people who know that there is yet another very lightweight browser for GTK+ 1.2.x and it is more powerful and more memory-optimized than Dillo: Access' NetFront. Check for info and screenshots inside.

If you have a design that breaks if you insert a margin of 10 pixels, then it's broken

Eugenia is referring to table-based layout, sliced-image design. In that respect, any extra margin does break the design.

Though, I completely agree with you a web page is (should be?) liquid and is not meant to be displayed similar pixel-to-pixel on any browser.

There's two ways to design a webpage: do it the "graphic designer's" way: think the web as a monolithic medium (similar to TV or paper folders) or do it the semantic way (content and structure matter the most, liquid design and no useless/fancy presentation). The second way is obviously the right decision for web presentation.
