K-Melon – an extremely fast, customizable, lightweight web browser based on the Gecko layout engine developed by Mozilla which is also used by Firefox. K-Meleon is Free, Open Source software released under the GNU General Public License and is designed specifically for Microsoft Windows (Win32) operating systems.
K-Meleon allows you to use your existing Internet Explorer Favorites or Opera Hotlist in place of or along with Netscape/Mozilla’s Bookmarks system.
It offers a convenient way to manage the many sites you may visit during a browsing session.
Mouse gestures are now a common staple among alternative browsers. Through the mouse gestures plugin, K-Meleon offers a quick, easy way to navigate the web by right-clicking on a page while sliding your mouse left or right to go back or forward.
K-Meleon comes equipped with a Popup Blocking feature that blocks these popups and also allows you to quickly enable popups at a particular site.
It is one of the simplest browsers to skin and all of its images can be changed to your liking.
K-Meleon’s unique macros plugin greatly expands its features and capabilities.
