Fast, free, and good.
Galeon is based on two classic philosophies: "Do one thing and do it well" and "Don't re-invent the wheel". Unlike Mozilla or Netscape, Galeon is just a browser and not an Internet suite. With an interface built with GTK and the Gecko browsing engine, it truly combines the best of both the worlds--a light interface and a fast browser. Since they don't bother with re-inventing the wheel, i.e. writing a page-rendering engine, they have been able to come with an extremely attractive alternative to Netscape/Mozilla. As they use the highly standards compliant and developed Gecko engine, Galeon can view sites in all their glory, something which can't always be said for the alternative browsers out there.
