[quote=ndebord] [quote=Fred] K-Meleon 1.7 seems possible to me. It uses Gecko 1.9.2.x. As long as Firefox 3.6 is supported, which uses Gecko 1.9.2.x, updates should be possible. Firefox 4.0, which is due to replace 3.6 in October or November, uses Gecko 2.0 which does not work together with the existing k-meleon.exe of KM 1.7. So the future of K-Meleon lies very much in the dark, as soon as Firefox stops support for FF 3.6.x . I do not know, how difficult it is, to adapt K-Meleon to Gecko 2.0, but lets hope that it will be possible. We had a similar situation, when Mozilla changed from Gecko 1.7 to 1.8 a couple of years ago, and development went on when Dorian came to help us. May be he will succeed again to keep K-Meleon alive this time. Fred[/quote] I well remember that problems moving from 1.7 to 1.8 and other stuff too, over the years. I also remember how Dorian saved our bacon and KKO made our day with his revival and extension of the Macro Scripting Language to its current robust state, quite remarkable stuff. Gecko 1.9.3 is FF 4.xxx and that is the sea change. We should go to Paul Allen (the other Microsoft billionaire) and ask for some bucks as, IMO, Mozilla is trying to rid itself of offshoots like K-Meleon. I'd hate to think that the only decent open source engine out there that developers can use is WebKit. :-([/quote]
