Re: html-browser / mime-types / nautilus / gmc / galeon

nautilus 1.0.6 had a web view but it sucked pretty bad as a web browser to be 
honest. With 1.0.6 you can build galeon 1.2 with nautilus support in order to 
use nautilus as a web browser and it tends to work pretty well.

In nautilus 2.0 there was a html view based on gtkhtml but i believe it was 
removed since it too didnt work very well as a web browser. In the future 
galeon2 will provide the nautilus web view (this is dependent on a release of 
mozilla based on gtk2).

In general it seems that nautilus is moving away from the explorer type dual 
web browser file manager and more towards acting as a desktop shell (for lack 
of a better term). There are some major ui differences between a web browser 
and a shell and it seems that galeon just does a better job of being a web 
browser while nautilus does a good job as being shell.

Of course some disagree with this...I dont want to make it seem like i am 
talking for everyone.
