What about Konq with the konqueror-nsplugins package.  Konq isn't a
geko browser yet the nsplugins package allows you to use mozilla

Thanks for the advice. I went in Synaptic (I am using gnome) and installed konqueror. I also installed the konqueror-nsplugins package.....

Is that enough to install java on the browser? The applets don't work at the moment in it but I can see web pages OK. How do I install mozilla plugins into it? There is a konq-plugins deb package that I haven't installed yet..... Should I install it? What does it do that the nsplugins doesn't do?

What does Knetattach do?  Do I need this or is it just a gimmick?

The settings page in Konqueror says that java is installed globally etc... but it doesn't work yet.

Comments appreciated.

If you don't use KDE otherwise, I know its a lot to drag in.  I don't
use KDE either but I like Konq (and k3b CD burner).
