I do indeed like Galeon very much, and use it frequently. I actually
thought about joining the project when it was quite young. Now if they
could just get rid of those annoying Gecko scrollbars, which, aside from
clashing with my global theme, frequently fail to let go of my mouse
(they apparently miss the mouse-up event) and continue scrolling the
page even though my mouse pointer is no longer anywhere near the
scrollbar. (Galeon did use GTK scrollbars once, briefly, but quit doing
so on its own and I could never get it back.)

Three cheers for Galeon! Can we get SSL, please?
