Yes, it means that this browser, is really, really, really, cool. Or in other words, if I was speaking in leet speak I would say "Pwns", or plus a whole lot of other crap.

And yes, script kiddies are amature crackers. Read this about what a script kiddie is:

You might want to read this about leet speak.

Thanks for the links moorcito.

I've been using a few of those terms and now I know where they came from.

actually, 1337 speaking was developed in the late 80's early 90's when irc and newsgroups would delete "bad content" or ban people from servers, so hakkers alike would start beating around it by creating a polymorphic language. the last of it, now pwned, pwn, et cetera. is just purely ego.

this started around when 1200 baud was a upgrade!

yeah phoenix is great it's basically a slimmed down version of Mozilla, and best yet you don't even have to install it. All you do is untar the tarball and go into the phoenix folder and type ./phoenix and voila there it is for you to use.
