With Firefox undergoing the usual late-life evolution towards uselessness (…it was great while it lasted, Firefox, but you’ve become Windozed…) it is time to start paying attention to other browsers. So here’s two very very interesting bits of browser news.
Lunascape is a new browser that is Java based but remarkably has not been developed to work on Linux. Therefore it sucks and you won’t be hearing much about it from me. But it does have an idea that is worth stealing for Linux-based browsers. It has three different rendering engines in it, so it can handle a wider range of sites properly.
Google Chrome, which does kinda run on Linux (that project is developing) has recently been tested and it apparently does well in the speed department.
