General discussion about K-Meleon.
[quote=ndebord] [quote=snuz2] The thing is, if we go to XuLRunner as Fred suaggested, I don't think it will be "lite" anymore. Just FF with a more Kmeleon-like interface and KMM. I can't even get XULrunner to run on my old machine, though I haven't tried very hard. Maybe the best thing to do is to just to get KM working for real with FF3.6 Gecko, which is a big improvement over 3.5. Alot of complaints about FF 4+ on Slashdot, especially regarding memory usage. And my own tests of FF9 on W98 is that it is slower than Kmeleon with FF3.5 Gecko. But FF3.6 is only a temporary stopgap measure, soon the web will leave FF3.6 in the dust. So is there any point? Anyways thanks for all the comments. I think the main point is the community and KMM that makes Kmeleon, followed closely by it's tolerance of old machine and OS plus quick boot and small memory usage. I don't think those last two will survive a change of html engine or migrating to XULRunner. I think some have posted ways to make KM a lot lighter in the past. I don't think it needs all the files included in the current build. Extensions used to really bog down FF, but I think they made great improvements there, and a lot of other areas.[/quote] Snuz2, I do appreciate your candor and your interest. It would be nice to have KM 1.7 working as that would give KM some time to try and find a solution. Only you can decide if that work would be of any value to you down the road. The other ways, of course, would be XULRunner or WebKit.[/quote]
