K-Meleon development related discussions.
[quote="Ivan Bútora"] K-Meleon is a light, fast and standards compliant browser ideal for older machines. As the developers are surely aware, as of now, Gecko 1.9 will NOT run on Windows 9x, mainly due to the implementation of Cairo and missing APIs in Windows 9x. For reference: [url]https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=330276[/url] [url]http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=401271[/url] As per the comments of Robert Callahan (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=330276#c36), it is quite possible to have Gecko-based applications work on Window 98 in the future, by implementing some APIs. It is now October 2006, and thus far, I have not seen any initiative in this regard. I would personally be more than happy to contribute, except I do not have any knowledge of C++ programming. I am wondering if perhaps among the K-Meleon community and the K-meleon developers, there could be someone willing to spend time and write some code that would enable Win9x support. Mozilla has even expressed that it would officially "approve" of such a project, in a similar way as it is now done with SeaMonkey. I think it's most important to get something going initially. Afterwards, if a couple of people are working on it, others will take notice and will join the effort.[/quote]
