Re: [trinity-devel] Browser?

Having extra space in my toolbars isn't a big issue, my screen is
large enough (1200x800), though I try to keep from clutter. There are
plenty of browsers already out there, the browser I'm thinking of is
mainly just as a long term way for me to practice (and also to help
fulfill a desire to move away from GTK). I might share it with some
people just to get some feedback and perhaps to have something to "fit
in" with the KDE3 interface. For me, it isn't really enough to apply
whatever Qt theme I'm using to GTK, I've found (generally speaking,
not true in every case) that Qt is more stable than GTK and takes up
less space. Also, adding in both sets of libs increases storages needs
(both hard disk and ISOs).
