Internet & Networking "Sure, you've use Firefox and Internet Explorer. You may have even dabbled in Flock and Opera, or even become a devotee of one of these lesser-known applications. But have you ever browsed the web with Deepnet Explorer? How 'bout SeaMonkey? And when's the last time you used Netscape? Did you even know that it was still around? And that's without even mentioning the really obscure browsers, with names like NutScrape, Orca, Salamander, Skipstone, SkyKruzer, Kazehakase, Madfox, Arachne, Charon, Chimera, Dillo, Oregano, and Viola. Here we'll review three web browsers that are far from today's Internet limelight: Deepnet Explorer, Netscape, and SeaMonkey." On a related note, a new version of K-Meleon has been released.

K-Meleon could be a very interesting project, but sadly it's interface is a mess.

The menus are too clutered, there is not attention to details and the options look strange, to say the least (last time I've checked they were a combination of native controls, XUL and text files).

I'll be keeping my eye on it, maybe now that it's got past 1.0 it will go in the right direction.

There is no XUL in the controls.
The UI part is only Win32-API - but yes, textfiles are abundant, but you don't have to use them. And they give functionality no other browser gives you.

And you rarely meet them unless you seek actively for them.

[EDIT:]
And too cluttered menues? What on earth are you smoking? Look at menues in all other GUI-browsers, and you'll find no clutter in K-Meleon. At least point out the exact clutter...
