Classilla is great. Nothing like Safari though, but for OS 9, it's probably the best.

Browsing under OS 9 just gets more and more difficult as the days go on... but if Classilla gets updated frequently, they may have something....

Has anyone played around with Classilla? I know there was a lot of excitment and anticipation around having a decent "modern" browser for OS 9, but I sure don't hear people talk about it much now that it's actually seen the light of day.

No offense intended, but: did it fizzle upon release? Or is it simply a matter of the number of people clinging to OS 9 being comparatively small (a secret cabal of sorts) and not making much noise?

I ask because I use Mozilla for browsing, but have been reluctant to install Classilla as it asks you to dump Mozilla, first. Since I've yet to hear about how good Classilla is/isn't, this isn't something I want to do, only to find that Classilla still has a long way to go.

Browsing with Mozilla can get pretty ugly, but as the old song goes "I've grown accustomed to her face." :)
