        I can't remember who posted it originally, but there is a browser
by the name of Gzilla which can be found at Bear in
mind, however, that it is somewhere in alpha stage. It compiled and runs
quite well for me, although most of the whiz-bang stuff isn't there yet.
Probably the most disturbing part is that it doesn't format HTML terribly
well. Pictures, side-panels, etc all end up cascading one after the other
down the page. Looks funny. Anyway, check it out.

"The care of every man's soul belongs to himself.
But what if he neglect the care of it?
Well what if he neglect the care of his health or his estate, which
would more nearly relate to the state.
Will the magistrate make a law that he not be poor or sick?
Laws provide against injury from others; but not from ourselves.
God himself will not save men against their wills."
