I tried to compile firefox awhile back and it wasn't even in the same
universe as LP64 clean.  Over 35,000 compiler warnings, many of which
should be fatal errors.  Fixed a lot of them and it still crashed
instantly.  Is firefox any better today?

Are there any web browsers with a reasonable combination of quality
and features?
