Backarrow is a Gtk+ Web Browser. This release is an un-official version to work with Mozilla 1.6. If you don't want to use it, get an official version from BackArrow was a project to create a K-Meleon style web browser for GNU/Linux. The project died after the creator started using ELinks and the console in general.

Skipstone is a Gtk+ web browser that embeds the mozilla HTML rendering agent Gecko. Backarrow is fast, light, resource friendly.

Installation has been made much easier with the new configure script. There are three different methods for installation, and each is outlined in this file so you can compare and choose the one that is most suitable for your needs and current configuration.

The three options are:

1. Use a binary skipstone build with either a source or binary mozilla build
2. Use a source skipstone build with a binary mozilla build and mozilla header files
3. Use a source skipstone build with a source mozilla build

The details of each installation follow, with pros and cons of each mentioned. Some of the sections will rely on information provided in others, so if you have any difficulties, scan the other sections as well.

What's New in This Release:
Compiles on MacOSX/Darwin
Patch from Daniel for checking pid > 0 in the case of a corrupt running file.
