You made me take a second glance at this and I have to wonder what the point is, too.

My original point was to suggest a browser that is more in line with the goals of Lubuntu (lightweight) while not suffering the myriad of problems we face with getting chromium updated (and secured) not to mention avoiding the rash of recent crashes and subsequently featuring a focus on security.

My point is not to include something substandard, but to actually include something better.

wxl, who uses apt to install browsers and even sometimes a combination of wget/git/bzr+dpkg/make so there. ;)
