I think that you can just download the SM browser without the composer & mail etc.

It looks nice but I'm not overboard on dark themes. I might give it a spin though.

That's a good point. I think that many of the old guard of SM fans were Netscape Navigator users & are still lamenting its demise. Fx has a lot of compatibility on the Net though & it is now virtually as usable as IE. I don't see what's wrong in using the same rendering engine to give SM that compatibility or more modernisation. Otherwise it will end up like K-Meleon & start to show its age. I love KM but it just isn't working properly in sites I use regularly, like Hotmail or Gmaps, these days.

I can respect this position but I think the traditionalists will have to move a bit with the times, otherwise SM will be doomed & potentially lost as a none-bloaty alternative to Fx.
