Google are now beginning to suffer from their own innovation. They put something on the market. People whine. Competitor releases version with the fix.
Im using Konqueror right now.. and i’ll say its as fast as firefox on breezy 5.10. The downside is that the ajax stuff on start.com and google.com/ig does NOT work. It does work with firefox and opera… if you’re wondering, opera is faster 8 is faster than firefox 1.5 and also comes with a great feedreader
