I agree, while it would have been nice to have a browser that works
with sites most people use, I've been using Arora 0.7 in Jaunty and
it's really not ready.  It currently offers no advantage over Firefox
in KDE (except maybe startup time), none of the niceties of Konqueror,
and leaks memory even worse than Firefox 3.0 does (this may be largely
Facebook's fault in both cases).
