[quote=guenter] [quote=ndebord] [quote=desga2] Almost is possible that we have to renamed the project (or created a new project) because K-Meleon is by definition a Gecko embed browser project and not a Webkit embed browser project.[/quote] Flock didn't rename itself when it made the move and name recognition is important. except to note that they probably look at K-Meleon, Camino and Galeon as gadflys they'd just as soon do without, as they are a constant reminder that there is another way to go with Gecko browsers than XUL/XPI emulation that is faster with operating system specific APIs. [/quote] K- & Something was Christofe's Idea for a skinable browser. K- & something as trademark, he used that system for other proects too. :) Winembed was his gadget. The project later chanced to mfcembed, which Mozilla does not support anymore. By chance Christofe's toy was Gecko based because that was the fashionable freeware HTML-enjine of that time. IMHO For K-Meleon identity it is not essential what html engine drives him but his look, feel, easy handling and changing things. When the project moves to another html-engine, the project will take these ideas and concepts along (hopefully), what better name can the browser have but the old fitting name, K-meleon, with its brand recognition. Epiphany, Flock, Camino,... Maxton... do/did not rename when they change their html-engine because they have had well established brand names. The end users does not care what engine drives the vehicle. So the name should be taken along if the project has to change the engine. Epiphany, Camino and K-Meleon are the senior stepbrothers of Firefox that mother Mozilla does not want anymore because Firefox is her cashcow. The three projects have IMHO shown that even with limited resources the native API browsers can compete with their XUL based clone. p.s. winembed is still (sort off) supported until GRE 2.0 Firefox 4; Maybe after that? Maybe use more elements of that?[/quote]
