:>Well I think an Apache browser now could really change the web. 
:>Porting to Windows will be done for completeness, but it's not a primary

:>Apache is known as the best web server, and in conjunction with "its"

:>Unfortunately the Apache developers are too busy, I suppose, to start

:>popular as an "Apache browser" could be. 

Not to muddy the waters, but I'm setting up an environment for developing
a freeware browser built around Java(tm) that implement a lot of the
things that the big 2 browser Co's and their pet standards committee
(W3C) seem to have thrown by the wayside.

I wasn't thinking of naming it Apache, more like Maia, but I wouldn't
mind, when there is something to distribute, putting it up on the same
sights as apache.  I was going to do this with Tcl/Tk and C libs,
since they run on every platform (just about) now, but the overhead
was too high.
