I was very unhappy with M18. It trundled along at snails pace but I
read that the developers are now concentrating on optimisation so it
may be time to have another look. It has support for XML using James
Clarkes Expat library too (he has hidden himself away in Bangkok to
write SGML parsers, I don't blame him!). And yes, you have to download
something or other to get secure http working but I think it fairly

Opera 4.0b2 is the version I have up and running here. It looks fine
but I've only had it up an hour so we'll see.

What is the horrific MDI ?
So, IE5, Mozilla or Opera fulfill the requirements of a browser that
handles html, secure http and XML. IE5 is the most stable but it
almost impossible to get running, Mozilla may be the most stable
browser that is relatively easy to install and Opera is nice but
unstable. Does that about sum it up ? Any other browsers while we are
at it ?
