Well, I would like to note that, there is a module called
nautilus-gtkhtml in the gnome cvs, which adds a view to nautilus, giving
it the ability to render and display HTML/web content.

So basically it was intended to be a file manager, but technically it IS
able to be used as a simple web browser if an appropriate view has been

Just to clarify what a view is: Galeon package may (hopefully will)
provide a nautilus view component, to give nautilus the ability to embed
galeon into a nautilus window, displaying specified web page.

BTW, galeon1 provided a nautilus-galeon-view for nautilus1. I'm not
really sure if galeon2 provides such a view for nautilus2.
