I love firefox too and it's my de-facto browser on Windows VMs. Firefox
and Galeon are very similar, both are designed to be light-weight (but
not featureless) browsers on top of the mozilla engine. However,
firefox is not a true gnome application and does not integrate with the
Gnome desktop well, unlike galeon which uses Gnome's default
configurations whenever possible (proxy settings, etc...) and can be
used as the default browser in Nautilus (type a URL in Nautilus, click
on 'View as' and select 'View as web page (Galeon)'.). Also, firefox is
not easy to package (see FreshRpms' threads on that subject). ..
