[snipperee : even more good stuff]
I've been keeping Dillo as the default browser too,
partly just because I figure it's safe as well as fast -- and
some of the things it doesn't handle may be pushing malware.
It sounds like you mean something fancier by "call up the
URL in another web page" than I quite understand.
When I find something on Dillo that I think longer about,
and decide I do want a closer look, I c&p the URL either into
Opera (where I can add it to my main bookmark stash), or into
Epiphany (which seems to me the most vulnerable browser I have,
and one whose bookmarking system just irritates me -- so I keep
its defenses on minimum, and treat it as expendable).
What am I missing here?
Beartooth Paganus, Staffwright, Sciurivore
What do they know of country, who only country know?
