Thanks for asking. Well it's true that I'm new in this field, I was 
recently hired by a GIS company and my first task here is to find and 
compare the available free software WMS-clients for one of our 
customers. The customer demanded a WMS-client, but maybe an approach 
like Chameleon would be better, since you have to set up a server to 
serve the client from anyway. I'm really not that much aware of the 
pro's and con's and I'm trying to learn on the way. I think of the 
clients that I have analyzed so far, Chameleon is unique in it's approach.

Besides Chameleon these are the other options I'm considering so far:

MapBuilder(warning, may crash your browser, use with caution! Don't zoom
