    1.01 is a *true* update. That is, install it right over K-mel 1.0. No need to save config files etc -- they remain undisturbed.

    Similar in some respects to Firefox in that it uses the same Mozilla gecko engine, and subsequently will have, more or less, the same security strengths / weaknesses as FF.
    It's a tweaker's delight in that it allows for all sorts of menu, toolbar customization.
    "K-Meleon is a simple, fast, efficient Windows web browser that allows the user to completely control its look and functionality."

    Why not download K-Meleon and give it a go. It won't affect any of your other browsers.

    Two items to go over after installation would be Edit, preferences and Tools, privacy.

    It is also a tabbed browser. The tabs are called layers in K-Meleon. Same difference.

    It is the speediest browser out there.

    i will try it,the reason why asked the question was because i can't do w/o roboform/adblock-plus/flashgot extensions of FF.
    even if roboform/flashgot work,my day will be successful.
