For the past couple of months I’ve been hopping between two browsers Opera, because it’s fast and really user friendly, but doesn’t show all sites properly and Firefox because it has better performance with Youtube, GMail and others, but feels slow, bloated and unresponsive. Needless to say, Internet Explorer isn’t even worth mentioning in this debate, being old, crap and ugly (and when the hell are they going to sort out the printing engine so half the page doesn’t disappear when you want a hard copy of a page? Rant over.)
Anyway, the solution to the problem presents itself in the form of K-Meleon a browser that seems to offer the best of both worlds, in that it shows sites as they were intended, isn’t bloated to the point that it makes my laptop cry for mercy and has a general no-messing attitude that I really like. If you run Windows, you should give it a go.
The only problem is the name. Despite the penny dropping and realising it’s a bastardization of “chameleon”, it still registers in my mind as “kay-melon”, which isn’t exactly catchy. Don’t let that put you off, though. Kay-Melon is a winner.
