Well, how about Galeon 1.2 (Gecko) on Linux with
Flash Player 6?  Locks up completely before
finishing 'building' whatever it's building.

At the moment I'm completely unable to see what
everyone's talking about despite having your most
recent player attached to the most recent version
of the most standards-compliant browser engine

Lynx, meanwhile, merely has a solitary link to
a page called 'Accessibility' which starts with
a couple of graphics which have no alt text (I
assume one of them's a search box, but who knows?).
6 links away from there is a choice of 'HTML version'
or 'Flash version'.  I clicked 'HTML'.  It sent me
to the same page.  After giving me a cookie.

"You may not have everything you need to view
certain sections of macromedia.com."

'Certain sections' in this case being *anything at all*
except a page telling me to bugger off.

I have a big 2x4 cluestick around here somewhere.
Wanna borrow it?
