For me Conkeror works just great most of the time. But the main problem
(for me) is that some of the extensions of Firefox will not work with
Conkeror. In particular, the connector with Zotero standalone just cannot
work with it. And this has forced me to "use Conkeror always, except if I
need to do reference-related work" (problem being that sometimes, while
browsing, I decide "let's add this to Zotero" and then I need to start
firefox, copy the link, etc).  KeySnail so far seems to be an alternative
to avoid my schizoid behavior.

Thanks for the suggestion; I did not know it.

I'll have to revisit it, because I just tried it and was unable to activate
it in any page (get the icon on the bar to be colored). I must be doing
something silly. However, I looked over the documentation quickly and I
could not see how to mark stuff for downloading. Do I need more coffee?
