Galeon is a GNOME Web browser based on Gecko (the Mozilla rendering engine). It is fast and fully standards-compliant. It achieves its simplicity through being designed strictly for the Web: not mail, newsgroups, instant messaging, etc. It is also modular: external applications or components will be used in preference to putting the function into the browser itself. This will be done with CORBA, Bonobo, or through the command line.
