General discussion about K-Meleon.
[quote=foobarly] I'm an ancient user of [b]K-Meleon[/b] who obviously hasn't been around much, but I couldn't pass the opportunity to join the debate here. Let me start by avowing that I jumped [b]KM[/b]'s ship around v1.5, when I started feeling that setting up [b]KM[/b] was turning akin to running in a maze (fun, but unpractical). I have been a steady [b]Firefox[/b] user ever since (in fact, I use the [b]Pale Moon[/b] Project builds), ocasionally resorting to [b]Opera[/b] for backup. And yes, although I'm not sure how, I firmly believe that [b]K-Meleon[/b] should be developed further. I'm not a developer, so my grasp of the issues outlined by [b]snuz2[/b], [b]rodocop[/b], [b]guenter[/b] and all the other enlightened [b]KM[/b] hardliners is rather faint, to say the least. But I do know that [color=#330000][b]KM[/b] was the BEST browser I ever used[/color]. What future do I envision for it? As it once was, it should be easy to install (or not, if ran portably) and be ready to be used immediately. It should also uphold its [b]Windows[/b] allegiance, making adaptation to current versions also a goal. Other goals are derived from the reasons that made it what it is -- lightweightness and customizability. The [b]Gecko[/b] engine, [b]XUL[/b], or any macro language are keepers while they fit in the general [b]KM[/b] purposes and philosophy; should they become burdens and given the current wealth of other choices, nobody should hesitate to toss them out... The result: a browser whose foundation is an easy retrievable and customizable Web browsing framework, coupled with all the basic amenities that characterise current run of the mill browsers (standard GUI, extensions/plugins/whathaveyou, and compliance with Web standards, currently first and foremost [b]HTML5[/b]). Come to think of it, this might be nothing like the old [b]KM[/b] anymore (I get the uneasy feeling this would be easier to achieve with the WebKit engine wraped in [b]DotNet[/b] code, resulting in a [b]QtWeb[/b]/[b]QupZilla[/b] analogue). If it is so, then so be it... There, I spewed my beans. Not that'll make much difference... :D[/quote]
