You don't expect help on gnome, do you?  gnome-help-browser -help says
nothing useful.

I downloaded Ximian GNOME (rpms via their downloader) a week or so ago,
but can't start it as gnome-session is a binary linked against slightly
different X libraries ....

I don't know about mozilla (I think Doug uses it), but it looks very
like Netscape 6.01, and that does *seem* to use the Netscape 4.* syntax,
alkthough the --help does not mention it.

KDE has a browser as I recall.
