My browser (IE) uses backspace instead of l for "go to last document."
And where's the "back" button?  Not the back key, the on-screen back
button? I'd like to see a GTK+ Info reader that looks like Netscape
(now that the GIMP is ported, it could use WinGTK+).

But you gain the mouse and multiple windows.  And you gain support for
copying to the Windows clipboard.  (No wait, those are in InfView and
tkInfo.

And you gain antialiased proportional fonts. (No wait, that's in
tkInfo.)

What I'd like to see is Info support rolled into the next Mozilla.
