    Mouse gestures are ok if you like being tethered to the mouse, its still much faster with accelerator keys.

    i jini very small web browser&#33; 66kb&#33; supports tabbed browsing also.
    http://www.ijini.batcave.net/
    dats crazy&#33;

    Ijini took a bit more space to install on my old win95 computer. Had to install 526kb mscomctl.ocx and 50kb msstdfmt.dll. No documentation, but believe it is probably dependent on IE files being available. I&#39;ve got an old version of win95 (pre95a)that didnt come with any version of IE. Not worth the effort to try this with it. Thats true test of whether its IE dependent or not.
    I use Off By One on my old laptop with the first version of Win 95 - there is no dependency on IE (well it&#39;s not even installed&#33 and it is pretty stable. [/b][/quote]
    Browser depend on Shdocvw.dll that again depend on MSHTML.dll. In other words: IE &#33;

    Some files this "small" browser need :
    Shdocvw.dll 1,3mb
    MSHTML.dll 2.8mb
    msvbvm60.dll 1,3mb
    :P

    If you are going to the foundation of things. And say that browser depends on 5megs of IE files, lets say, all browsers depend on the OS, so why not add the size of the OS to the total as well.
    Any web browser that runs on Win95, would be dependant on 125megs+ of additional OS files. any browser on Win98 would depend on the 250megs+ of additional OS files. and so on.
    As these web browsers can not yet run by themselves, so they are dependant on the underlying OS.
    Since IE is already installed on all Windows Systems. Unless purposely removed, it is a waste of time to point out what they are dependant on.
    What matters to most would be the size of the program when they go to download it.

    The only webbrowser & OS that beats them all would most likely be the QNX DEMO disk, which has a desktop, graphical web browser, and everything; (the operating system & web browser, PPP, video drivers....) fits on a single 1.4meg floppy.

    It was just to state that this browser is just an IE wrapper.

    Well this was the first version of Windowes 95 fitted on this laptop whcih does not come with IE. I upgraded it from Win 3.11 which had no browser installed. So where did the files come from?

    Shit my spelling is getting bad&#33; I presume the files were part of windows 95. Anyone tried the new opera 7.5 beta yet? Even the ads are not obtrusive with this version for non-registered users. Pretty fast too. Giving Firefox a run for it&#39;s, erm, money on my machine at present&#33;
