General discussion about K-Meleon.
[quote=guenter] [quote=penang] KM uses the sme Gecko engine as FF, right? [/quote] I assume we speak about identical GRE version. Yes & No, because unlike Firefox and the rest - K-Meleon only uses the components that are needed for browsing. After the GRE is build devs delete many files (59? - & not all modules are build). AFAIK Firefox, Thunderbird ... have the same basic GRE, that is they all have mail and browser components. Till FF 2 the dlls K-Meleon has in components were in the big exe & now they are in a big Xul.dll. After the deleting of the files the GRE is slightly faster on tests. I never checked the RAM before abd after. My guess less RAM is used. K-Meleon chrome is also smaller. Smaller chrome gives faster start. Chrome is loaded and stays AFAIK in RAM. On current machines 20% more RAM do not matter unless other hungry apps also want RAM :)[/quote]
