What I really meant was an add-on package, it would still depend on 
epiphany. But I'm afraid that the epiphany package would still need 
nautilus if it is compiled in the normal binary.

I'm not sure if it makes sense to have 2 binaries for this case.

Well, Some have the same problem. Most do it right afaik.

It seems a bug. I had actually configured to use "Text beside buttons"

It's just that when my other hand is unavailable (don't ask why ;p Oh 
well: PIZZA) using the mouse is much easier/quicker. That's why I prefer a 
scroll-mouse over PgUp/PgDn.

Well, actually a key-combo for adding a link to the toolbar would be nice. 
And if I could have a statusbar showing me the link (when I select a 
title) that would be great too (so you know what you're erasing when the 
Title is useless).

I can ? Show me where I can find that ;))

PS Where can I add some of these features, so that at least I have the 
feeling they're not lost. ;p
