General discussion about K-Meleon.
[quote=desga2] [quote=siria] IMO this language setting is of very important use! Please, try to see things also from a "normal user" viewpoint, not only experts view. New users and the huge majority of casual users know nothing about "about: config", and either never realize such a setting exists, or if they know it from other browsers, they will start searching like crazy to find that global setting in KM-preferences too and give up frustrated, even give up the browser if they do need that feature. Even people who've used KM for years and work a lot with about: config may not have realized yet it does have such a feature (like myself)! There are hundreds of hidden settings in about:config, but who knows of them all, and additionally what each of them does exactly?? [/quote] I'm sure that you are listen this before; "Search in Google, ask in Forum, in this order please." :P [quote=siria] If you say it's easy to change it from about: config, why should the very same function suddenly become too complicated to change it from a prefs tab? Just a little input field with 1-2 lines of explanation and an example beside it. Even I could write a tiny little macro that pops up a prompt-input-field for that line, but this macro-created menu entry would just be in Edit>Configuration>Languages, rather prone to be overlooked there, while everyone would expect it on the prefs tab for "Page Display". Lots of space left there too... I understand that to create the additional "drop-down-choice-list" would be complicated, but why not [b]offer at least a little manual input field[/b]? That would be very much the goold old basic K-Meleon style too :cool: And certainly a snap for a developer, just a little input field for an already existing pref...[/quote] The problem isn't create the XUL GUI controls to do it or change the pref, the real problem is check that the imput value is an imput valid value. I can't (I don't want) create a long list with all world languages. (Do you know all world languages string? I don't know it) (Note that this list almost must be translated to all localizations) If I created a single input box, how to check that string introduced is a correct language string? If the 80% of the Internet users don't know difference between a browser and a search engine, how I can suppose that they known what is or what is his language string? If we facilitate a pref modification we have to check that the value in pref is corrected/valid. Preferences with wrong values can produce unexpected and unwanted results. This can cause annoyance to users and they open bugs about it. Anyway, I'll studied if it's possible the improvement of this option in Preference XUL panels. But not because this existed in old versions (I'm wrong in above post, this option never was included in old Preferences) else because this is available in Firefox 3.5.x and Seamonkey 2.0.x.[/quote]
