RE: [Nautilus-list] Re: bug in Mozilla 0.9.1

I think that this is an extremely short-sighted view.
What I (perhaps naively) view as the optimal solution to the problem is to
work with the galeon people to develop a gnomeBrowser component that builds
in all the browser functionality that galeon adds to gtkmozembed.  So then
galeon the app is just a shell that does a little value-add  (like tabbed
browsing, etc), but is limited to web browsing.  Nautilus then gets to use
the featureful browsing component, and is at least slightly more separated
from mozilla changes.  I seem to recall the galeon people expressing
interest in something like this.
Nautilus should be an excellent filemanager (which, for the most part, it
is), but it can be a whole lot more.  Let's take advantage of what bonobo
can do.

On a related note, will the image viewing capabilities that nautilus has be
taken out in favor of using eog again?

this has been suggested on this list before, but a solution would be to
ditch mozilla and put the lighter-weight gtkhtml in there to browse
simple html pages. i don't need a full-featured web browser in my file
