This is a little fuzzy for me because it was a while back; I once installed magic workbench and, therefore, must have installed MUI. But, one of the two was unregistered. I ended up having to deal with something I didn't like due to it being unregistered. I cannot remember what it was that I didn't like but I remember something pestering me. I am not sure if it was icons or something.

My understanding is that MUI is merely a set of libraries and installing MUI standalone will not affect how my WB looks.

MagicWb uses the MUI libraries and affects how workbench looks.

MUI requires registration. I am not sure about MagicWb.

Correct if I am wrong.

Anyway, I have been apprehensive about using MUI ever since because there is no simple uninstallation. It would be possible to reverse engineer the installed things but this is manual effort or a script.. Either way some effort.

I am wondering if there is a Web browser that does not depend on MUI. My question is: is there such a thing for 3.1?

MagicWB is not required.
You can set a specific palette with other tools. Icons can be exchanged with one of the many programs on the Aminet.
For both options I recommend that you have a look at BestWB.
There are programs for that included.

MUI - AFAIR - only needs be registered if you plan to change the look of MUI applications. If used just as a prerequisite for programs such as Poseidon you can use it for free. You have to live with the standard look then, though. Which is ok.
