everybody doing it, so why i:

“K-Meleon is the Windows answer to Galeon. Thus, K-Meleon is a lite Web browser based on gecko (the
mozilla rendering engine). It’s fast, it has a light interface, and it is fully standards-compliant. To make it
simple, K-Meleon could be considered as the unbloated Mozilla version for Windows.”

snarky comments aside, kmeleon is interesting considering i was going to originally use this space to pass on a bit on why we might want to stop beating the lizard:

“There’s more to the Lizard then meets the eye, but you have to take a look beyond the box — or should I say browser?

Because much of the Mozilla effort’s project management has been in the open, we can learn from this effort, and even apply many of the management techniques to our own efforts.

As just one example, if you work for a large shop, consider using internal newsgroups as a way for your own architecture teams to communicate with other developers — this approach does work.

If nothing else, you can download and use Bugzilla, a sophisticated, free, bug tracking and reporting system.

As for the Mozilla platform: Take a moment to appreciate that the Mozilla development team has only been following the programming practices we’ve all been pushing for the last decade, and that the reusable component-based architecture is one we can all benefit from.

It’s a better use of your time than beating the Lizard.”
