I think I'm the last person who did anything substantive with amaya,
and that was only because it was failing in the bulk builds for long
enough to irritate me and I don't like seeing things die of apathy.

I would describe it as a pile of junk and if you or anyone are looking
for an old smaller browser (it's also not especially small) to fix up,
you're probably better off looking elsewhere.

(in fact, I see you already removed it)
