General discussion about K-Meleon.
[quote=caktus] [quote=JohnHell] forget about the easy macro language and "The Browser You Control" experience. [/quote] I really hope we don't loose "The Browser You Control experience." It is what sets KM above and beyond any other browser and is why I prefer to use KM over any other browser. With this Stupid Windows 8 OS, apparently the only KM I can use is JamesD's 1.6beta2.5. Although 1.6beta2.5 is a bit quirky with Windows 8, with help of the dedicated members of KM's forums, "quirky" has pretty much become a non-issue. With all the help available here in the forums it is as if KM actually has a [b]LIFE OF IT'S OWN[/b]. My only concern now is the few web sites that seem determined to ignore "GECKO" but this becomes less and less a problem. As far as I am concerned, KM will always be my default browser until I have absolutely no choice. [quote=guenter] BTW AFAIK Dorian compiled bugfixes into plugins and exe and posted them in summer 2012. So it is not all that dead [/quote] This is probably the best new I've heard all day.:) [quote=guenter] There is no future without drastic changes. [/quote] Probably the worst new I've heard all day.:( [quote=guenter] ...provided the interested users can raise the money... ...IMHO WE users cannot continue to be freeloaders... [/quote] Why not at least attempt to set up a war chest with the understanding that if the KM project for some reason does not work out, the money would go to help something like perhaps Source Forge. Nothing lasts for ever, especially with out a little help.:P [quote=robocop] The fate of project depends really on the fact whether some financially competent company would be interested in it or not. No other real way I think. Thought inertia is the key moment in why KM isn't interesting to the devs - I speak about new devs, maybe students. KM is very good base to learn something and as training. But I think most of potential devs are not informed about KM existence... [/quote] Maybe a company sponsor would be the best way to go, especially if it could be done in an unobtrusive manner since just about all things that go this route tend to throw good things out of whack. [quote=robocop] new devs, maybe students. KM is very good base to learn something and as training. [/quote] Sounds like this could be the best way to go. Perhaps someone knowledgeable of accomplishing such goals could be persuaded to take on such a project. [quote=robocop] But I think most of potential devs are not informed about KM existence... [/quote] I myself, often mention KM and what a great browser it, how it can be customized to virtually no end with out adverse effects and how easy it is to work with, even for the average user. My problem is trying to not sound like I am spreading SPAM.[/quote]
