Unfortunately, NetBSD is not considered mainstream. Opera is here under
Linux emulation, and ISTR that FreeBSD emulation has now problems.

I will perhaps try seamonkey... But I do think for this Web thing that
this is the same as for TeX -> TeXlive and others: the size of the
monsters is a sure symptom that this is not going in the right 
direction (they have a size several times an O.S. without providing the 
features...). I fail to see how with such a size "security" can even be
talked about (but this is another matter).
