I should point out that I'm not at all associated with the K-Meleon project--I just posted there like you did. I agree about the navigation--that would be very nice. And the shotcuts should be user-configurable with templates based on IE, Netscape, and Opera. The bigger/smaller buttons could be implemented fairly easily I think (it is part of Mozilla). Also, this is the very first release of this shell of a browser--and for that, I think it's excelent.
The loadtime for me is very good--5 seconds including loading the home page. How long is it taking for you? And yes, Gecko really -is- that big under the hood. Too big, if you ask me, but that's to be expected since it's still only in alpha/beta testing, and they haven't even started working on optimizing the code, etc.

ok, i accept that (must, so to say ;) ), but do you think you can
extend the keyboard-shortcut system in a way that you can switch
between windows with "1" and "2". also the zooming capabilities of the
sytem you use right now has now function for "bigger" and "smaller"
but inly the 5 statest from "smallest" to "large". i'm afraid you are
bound to that functionality, aren't you?
if there's a way to export keyboard shortcuts, i would help you by
making a template of opera-like shortcuts...

the load-time is quite long for a browser only.. (compared to opera)
is gecko really that big under the hood?
