Do you know Phoenix? It is a "light"-Version of Mozilla, just the Browser and a faster GUI. Check it out, it is stable, fast and good.

Phoenix is not lighter than Mozilla, but has lessier features. I thing Mozilla is best choice!

Floris,

Great article. Here are a few things that you might enjoy:

Check out the preferences toolbar at http://www.xulplanet.com/downloads/prefbar/

Also, google searching from the addressbar still works for me, just type one or a few words and press the up-arrow to select "search Google for ..."

Another killer feature: select some text on a webpage, click right, select "Websearch for", or "View Selection Source".

(using Mozilla 1.2b)

Thanks guys...
Yes Karsten, I know Phoenix... But it did not exist when I started to write this article (neither did 1.0.1, 1.1 or 1.2 beta) - there's a moment when you just have to stop updating the article or it will never get finished :-)

I can recommend Phoenix to anyone interested in it - by the time it reaches 1.0 it will be a fantastic browser. Phoenix *is* lighter than 'Moz, it's smaller and faster. But yurok is right too, in a way: it still is based on pure Mozilla code.

The preferences toolbar looks promising too!
Another nice feature I forgot: you can change the text size of a page by using Control+mousewheel. Too bad I can't remember where in the Preferences menu this option is included...

Konqueror is not a fake at all, but if you look with mozilla and konq. i.e. at the internal help from eclipse, you can see what is _the_ killer application and what is ready for the trash :-)

It would be lovely if someone would explain me how to install
JAVA with Mozilla.
Please, no std stuff: yes, I checked

plugin directory..etc...as indicated on the site of mozilla.org.
Anyhow in the about://plugings java is not there and when acessing
applets, no it does not work.
Any ideas??? Any suggestions???

Hello Ioan,
let's say you have installed mozilla in /opt/mozilla-1.1
then you need to go to
/opt/mozilla-1.1/plugins
(cd /opt/mozilla-1.1/plugins)
and create a link to the right (!!ns6!!) java plugin from your
jre installation:
ln -s /usr/java/jre1.3.1_03/plugin/i386/ns600/libjavaplugin_oji.so .

After that restart mozilla and enjoy java.
From: Floris Lambrechts <floris-(at)-linuxfocus-(dot)-org> [ date: 2002-12-09 ]
To install the Java plugin (if you don't have / need / want the complete Java JRE):

Become root.
Start mozilla.
Go to http://wp.netscape.com/plugins/jvm.html
Click on the 'Java2 Linux Plugin' button.
Click OK.

Done - it can't be any simpler than this :-)
