How was I supposed to discover that?
Seamonkey was like Netscape but actually developed. I used it for a long time. Pale Moon was better--a little more light weight and faster.

I hate navigating by hand when I know I can just /some/path/to/my/thing rather than load / then /some (wait) then /some/path (wait) /some/path/to (loads quicker, less files I don't care about right now) /some/path/to/my (better) /some/path/to/my/thing

I remember doing almost the same thing but on a random old Sparc station I had floating around. Took forever to get X windows installed... got it working then messed with something and broke it and never got it to come back up again.
I think it was g++ you had to build of gcc for slackware but my... more
