Browser change

Currently, I've switched back from using Firefox 1.0 to Epiphany (1.2 on Mandrakelinux 10.1 and 1.4 on Fedora Core 3)

Pros:
  • It's a bit faster
  • fits in better with the rest of the desktop.
  • Hopefully it shares more memory with the rest of the applications I run, but you never know.
  • Typing Bookmarks in the Location bar is more sensible. (You type the name of the site, not the URL).
Cons:
  • No add-blocking (coming in Epiphany Extensions for 1.6)
  • Doesn't help the "we're all running Firefox" argument
That's my view, anyway.
