[quote=guenter] Today many pages take a much heavier toll on resources that cannot be met by older PCs any more. K-Meleon has a light weight Windows native GUI. It can only try to be no extra burden on older hardware. It cannot change the way the web goes. 1.6 is based on Gecko 1.9. 1.7 is based on 1.9.2 x. Like Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:220.127.116.11pre) Gecko K-Meleon/1.7.0 whose rendering engine I compiled for my own use. That is the contemporary of Firefox 3.6. HTML and Java Script standards change. On some pages the older Geckos are not supported anymore. New html or java script functions that they simply do not know. Other pages bugged K-Meleon users with nagg screens such as Your browser is outdated please upgrade to the newest IE, Firefox or Chrome version. And worse the creators of some pages intentionally crippled the functionality of their pages when their scripts find what they regard as outdated browsers. The only choices this project has are a contemporary Firefox/Mozilla HTML/JS engine or a contemporary chrome/webkit HTML/JS engine or to end the project for good. I personally would have preferred a change to chrome/webkit because they offer a stable embedding module. But I am no developer and do not have to decide what to do next.[/quote]
