If you are referring to GNOME HIG, I personally do not agree that all of the HIG rules are beneficial (especially the proxy rule), but I also am not interested in debating the HIG.


If you are referring to MIME integration, MIME is a mess across the entirety of GNOME itself (don't know about 2.8 work) and not limited to just the browser.

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). ..

fedora.us used an ugly debian packaging hack temporarily, and will soon move to this upstream fix.
