(Where was the link?)

IIRC, Opera is now free-as-in-beer, but it's still not free in the DFSG
sense, which is a great shame; it would be great if it could go into

Perhaps it could be distributed by Debian in non-free, though. I might
have a look at its licence.

I've been using Konqueror at work for a week or so now after Netscape
somehow started crashing my machine hard. I must say that it's a very
nice browser, and much faster than Mozilla. You don't need to be running
KDE either, which is good for me as I'm a GNOME/sawfish type.
