Help Wanted

We always need Heavy Lifters in code. If you're excited about web browser technology, why not get involved in the premier Open Source browser project? We're especially looking for people with skills in Mac OS X programming and Windows developers. Get started today by finding and fixing something. Instructions are not provided here since figuring out how to do all of this can be considered part of the "entry requirements". ;-)
