[Newbies] Talk to me of Browsers

I am a relative Squeak newcomer and I'm trying to get a sense of what
sorts of options there are for me to work with. My question tonight
I am running the 3.9 (7067) image and am using the default browser it
comes with. However, I've loaded up some other images and they include
a different browser that seems to support Traits (whatever they are
exactly) and more refactoring tools. However, after some brief
experiments that browser seemed a bit buggy to me -- I couldn't browse
instance variables for instance, and asking for the 'senders' of a
message threw an exception.
On these mailing lists I've seen folks talk about: the "Traits Browser",
the "Omni Browser", and so on. On SqueakMap I see something called the
Refactoring Browser that requires something else called "AST".
Can someone give me a breakdown of the currently supported browsers and
why I might choose one over the other.
I don't mind advice of the sort: "Use this one!" That would be great.
Thanks in advance.
