General discussion about K-Meleon.
[quote=guenter] Yes it is dead. BTW AFAIK Dorian compiled bugfixes into plugins and exe and posted them in summer 2012. So it is not all that dead really. My personal opinion. There is no future without drastic changes. [b]HTML Engine?[/b] K-Meleon needs an HTML engine update within two years or less. Chrome project, Webkit and MS (yes, MS html engine was the original embed choice) still offer embed projects like the one from Mozilla that K-Meleon relied on in the past. The Mozilla embed project was stopped. No financial rewards. Firefox is Mozilla.org's cash cow currently and gets all support. K-Meleon needs an embed project that will be available and updated at least at all Windows flavors. MS has an restrictive support policy so IMHO its product is out of competition too. [b]Where to go in case the project ain't dead?[/b] IMHO K-Meleon project should migrate its essential K-Plugins (that is where the K-M specific functionality AFAIK is) to the [url=http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blink_(Software)]Blink[/url] engine provided the interested users can raise the money to do this job. I would chose the Yandex flavor of Blink. p.s. [b][u]NO[/u][/b]. IMHO WE users cannot continue to be freeloaders. :P Financing can possibly be partially done by selling the number one search engine place and other things. But we may have to take some money into our hands FIRST. :( Oh yes. We got to interest new and especially old devs to accompany the change to a non totally free project. No idea how.[/quote]
