I understand the proprietary thing.  I think I've made my peace with that.
Adware sucks.  But it gets onto your computer the good old fashioned way.
;)  I paid my $25 bucks, so I don't see it anyhow.

Real estate IS klunky with the ads, but excellent without.  Opera interface
is every bit as configurable as FF.  Probably moreso.

Widget set sucks, but I hate Qt.  Not as much as gtk2, which I think is a
scourge.  But then again, I think MS's widget set (pre XP) is the prettiest
of all.  gtk1 comes a close second.   gtk2 is almost, but not quite, as ugly
as MS XP's widget set.  IMHO of course.

I'll try giving Galeon another chance on my gaming machine -- galeon wants
to pull a whole bunch of things in with it.  Sadly, my main work station is
a little under-powered.  :(
