[2005-12-21] Free Source Code Browsing Tools

I would like to use a tool that would allow me to easily browse large bodies of source code (for example GCC). I do not need an IDE. The tool should:

I have looked at Exuberant Ctags (for vi), Source Navigator, Hypersrc/Pypersrc, GLOBAL etc., but do not fully like any of them. Source Navigator comes the closest to filling my needs, but has an ugly interface and (more importantly) does not seem to be maintained at all (for example, no one has bothered to fix the usage of "-fwritable-strings", which newer GCCs do not support anymore). So for people who do not use IDEs, is there no tool that measures up to these requirements?
