Yeah, I was equally disappointed with how the unstable Galeon turned out. It
turns out there's a better solution, though - Firebird + "tabbed browser
extensions" [1] does all the nice things Galeon used to do, and then some.
The introduction of things like smooth scrolling also make it feel more
polished. I switched about a month or two ago, and haven't looked back.
