Well, Aurora (qt browser ported to Haiku) is crashing a lot, so actually, right now, it seems the AROS browser is a bit more usable.

But Haiku is not far behind, though, and the desktop environment Haiku delivers is kick ass. AROS' Wanderer leaves a lot to be desired, and hasn't really been worked on since 2005 or 2006.
