recomend konqueror alternative ?


Hey guys n girls.

ive just re-installed linux, and im going for a sort of minimalist approach.
i installed only the bare minimum, then manually installed each package as i needed it... X for example...

anyway, im using icewm but would like a graphical tool for browsing the local disk (and viewing jpegs ect)

but konqueror is way to bloated...

is there a simple browser out there, that will launch a chosen image viewer when i clicked a jpeg for example ???

thanKyou.

Firebird 0.7 is excellent in my opinion, and pretty lightweight. http://www.mozilla.org/products/firebird/ -- J.W.
