Your call.

I hear this objection.  I sympathise with it somewhat.  I also do not
run (or particularly care for) GNOME (WindowMaker is my preferred
desktop).  That said, I run and love Galeon, and would strongly suggest
you give it a look.  It just gets so many things _right_.

...and with Debian, handling the deps for Galeon is a breeze.  Support's
been rock solid for the past two years, no breakage that I can recall
(this wasn't always true).

Peace.
