General discussion about K-Meleon.
[quote=ndebord] [quote="Jody Thornton"] I keep returning to the forums, hoping to hear that someone has awakened the project. But sadly, it seemes as dead as OS/2. Last Novemember I switched to Seamonkey, which is quite fast and uses a modern Gecko Engine like Firefox. I was using K-Meleon 1.6b2 for nearly two years, but without any updates, I started noticing that I was missing items in pages that easily showed up in Internet Explorer 8. So I switched to Seamonkey. Hopefully someone will revive the project and release a complete version of K-Meleon v1.7 with a current Gecko or even WebKit engine. v1.7 has only been in Alpha now for what? Two, three hundred years now?[/quote] Jody, IF you want the latest 3.6.xxx engine, then Fred's version is the one to use. It has its issues, but it is usable. Personally, I use FF 11 as my backup browser and I use it the old-fashioned way with the "Open In Browser" KMM macro on a right click with my mouse. PSI still says that KM 1.6 b2 is safe, but that can't last forever. FWIW, it would be a shame to lose KKO's magnificient rewrite of the KM scripting language. For my tastes and needs, it works better than Firefox's XUL XPI extensions, not to mention that whenever I have needed something special fast, I just ask here and several of the KM coders have always come through for me in almost nano-time with macros that do what I asked for. <SIGH>[/quote]
