I spent too much time trying to configure X (via /etc/X11/xorg.conf) to look good on a Samsung SyncMaster 225BW 22-inch 1680x1050 LCD monitor connected via an analog VGA cable. In short: that monitor sucks. It had an HDMI cable, too, but I didn't try it. Somebody else plugged one into an iMac via the HDMI cable, and it looked a little less bad. My old ViewSonic VX2025wm is a bit smaller, but I appreciate it a lot more now.

With more experience, I can now say that the Epiphany browser has only one real advantage over Galeon: it runs Javascript code faster. It might also be less leaky. Against that, it lacks important features, such as rejecting cookies. It crashes just as often, and the same way (which might be Gecko's fault; but Iceweasel doesn't). However, it might be that its plugin interface allows its shortcomings to be fixed.

Built linux-, patched with Suspend2 and the current bcm43xx wireless driver, for my Dell D620 laptop. Suspend sometimes hangs when "trying to free 24M", unnecessarily.
