K-Meleon (c) 2000 Christophe Thibault ( All rights reserved.
K-Meleon uses some bits from :
SuperPimp(tm) Installer (c) 2000 Nullsoft
Gecko and System Icon from Mozilla (
Little AVI animation borrowed from the Galeon project ( (c) Fr<EFBFBD>d<EFBFBD>ric Toussaint
K-Meleon is the Windows answer to Galeon. Thus, K-Meleon is a lite Web browser based on gecko
(the mozilla rendering engine). It's fast, it has a light interface, and it is fully
standards-compliant. To make it simple, K-Meleon could be considered as the unbloated Mozilla
version for Windows.
K-Meleon interface tries to mimic the IE MFC interface as much as possible. For convenience,
it also uses the IE bookmarking system.
