So the idea is to download his galeon a/o mozilla a/o both, then do "rpm
-Uvh galeon mozilla"?

It takes a lot longer to open than Opera 7.54 or Konqueror; whenever I go
back to it with the workspace switcher, it takes a lot longer for anything
to show than with any of the other five workspaces. Everything it does
seems slow once it's usable. While it's open, everything else seems slow.
The system monitor always shows CPU history near max while it's open. Want
my hardware browser info?
