Really quick rendering but rubbish user interace and the sum total of ZERO features, oh dear, they've had so much longer than Phoenix too!

???

What features are you looking for?

Have you checked the macro scripting capabilities?

No I haven't stefan, I'm not that sure if I'm willing to either! As far as I can tell it has problems with mouse gestures & no kind of address completion or tabs, please correct me if I'm wrong!

You are wrong. At least about tabs. The other stuff I don's use or don't care, so I can't tell. KM ist a fine and very fast browser; and with a great scripting language to configure almost anything. Using that scripting language, it is possible to add easily new functions and features.

Don't judge a tool you don't even know.

I have actually used it now, I will agree that it's very fast just not feature backed, & makes browsing a bit of a chore.

I have a pretty old (Pentium MMX 200 Mhz, 32 MB RAM) computer that I just use for surfing/text processing . . the combination of Internet Explorer and Microsoft Word would just bring it down to its knees, while Phoenix would run quite slowly. Having switched to Abiword and K-Meleon, its a whole different story. . though I'll still use Phoenix on my other box, K-Meleon really impressed me with its speed/customizability (the ability to move around/delete/rename/change the keyboard shortcut for any menu options was great, and I had phoenix-like tab functionality almost immediately by setting a new File option for New Layer, setting the shortcut to CTRL T, and then setting a URL bar shortcut to CTRL L) . . so i guess what i'm saying is great job to the developers, and like apples in oranges (a comparison from another thread) phoenix/mozilla and k-meleon each have their niche.
