[quote=ndebord] [quote=bksening] [quote=rodocop]But KM hadn't mastered even GRE 2.0 so it has 'improvement space' at least up to Gecko 8-9 without losing compatibility :-) More thoughts I'll keep to myself as I'm not a programmer...[/quote] Because KM should really "improve" for GRE 2.0, an outdated and slow rendering engine???? Is that something actually desired? Will it even be practical? My other post was responding to the previous comment "Firefox 3.6 is still fully supported", which is talking about official support for FF versions, which actually is all about official support for the OSes they run on. I actually find it funny that Mozilla lists Win2K as a supported version, because that is end-of-life as well. Microsoft won't be providing support if any issues are found with Win2K. And now FF3.6 is slated for EOL in April 2012, and an Extended Support Release (ESR) will be created based on FF10. At that point there will no longer be any Mozilla support for FF3.6. https://wiki.mozilla.org/Enterprise/Firefox/ExtendedSupport:Proposal What kind of development will KM see in the next 4 months? Where will KM be headed after that? Hopefully KM will at least move to code based on FF10, instead of trying to work with FF3.6 code which is outdated and soon will not be supported anymore.[/quote] C++ is the magic word. Camino and K-Meleon both suffer from a lack. As Mozilla Corp. is really no longer as committed to open source as it was in the past, they have made it harder for 3rd party offshoots to survive. Embed, for all its problems, was a good thing for Mozilla Org's open source reputation; seemingly not so good an idea for Mozilla Corp. We're lucky that the original open source Mozilla browser, Mozilla Suite, aka Seamonkey, is still alive and kicking.[/quote]
