[quote=kko] [quote Eugen Mezei]So it hit me that KM uses for all his icons more than 256 colors.[/quote] The number of used colors depends on the particular skin (as Fred mentioned). You may find fitting skins in the [url=http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/wiki/KMeleonThemesWiki]K-Meleon Themes Wiki[/url]. [quote Eugen Mezei]Who needs this? Is it really necessary that every tiny button has thousands of colours? 256 would be more than enough, I would say 16 colors is exactly right, but ofcourse most of the buttonicons could be drawed with 4 colours also.[/quote] Excuse me. Who is still using 256 color displays today? Why should the majority - namely those who are using half-way state of the art hardware and OS versions - live with limitations just to ensure compatibility with ancient hardware/OSs that practically nobody is using anymore? When you are using ancient hardware or OS versions, then [i]you[/i] have to make compromises. Everything has it's price... And the skins won't be your only problem, see the [url=http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/wiki/FAQ#colors]FAQ[/url]. [quote Eugen Mezei]After striping IE completly from the laptop (with the 98lite tool), even more problems occured, so that at the moment KM is practically unusable. How tihgt is KM tied to parts of IE?[/quote] Don't forget the [url=http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/wiki/FAQ#requirements]system requirements[/url]! K-Meleon does not require IE/components to run. But it requires some system libraries that were introduced into Win9X together with IE. When you didn't install IE, your system will be in lack of these libraries. You will experience similar problems with other applications. Everything has it's price...[/quote]
