I tried K-Meleon briefly a couple of years ago, but shortly after my problems with Windows 2000 got so complicated that I decided that a reformating of the partition and a reinstallation of the OS was the simplest solution to those problems. I never got around to reinstalling K-Meleon. Not untill now. It's a nice and fast little browser, but is there any substantial reasons to use it when I have Firefox and Opera? Do any of you use it? And do you see it in your logs?

It has been mentioned in Webmaster World before [google.com] but not much. It is based on Gecko and my personal impression is that its position as the small, lean member of that family has been taken by Firefox. But it is developed by another developer community and I would like to know if this fact gives some real advantages.

K-Meleon opens faster and has a faster interface than Firefox. Once open, I don't notice any difference in rendering speed. It's certainly not as customizable as Firefox and in my opinion it lacks a lot of Fx's usability. Overall, it's a nice lightweight browser for straightforward surfing, but I don't think it's anywhere near a "power user" tool. (It also uses the term "favorites" for "bookmarks," which is too much like IE for my liking... ;) )
