[quote="Eugen Mezei"] Fred: Ja, mit Irfan kenne ich mich bestens aus, mal sehen was es so an Konvertierungsqualität bei den Ikons rausholt, manchmal macht er recht komische Sachen bei der Farbrunterrechnung. Ich habe eher gefragt, weil ich dachte die Icons seien irgendwie im Programm oder in den Skins eingebunden. Mein Fehler, ich hätte suchen sollen. Andrerseits sollte die Frage auch eine prinzipielle Einstellung aufwerfen. (Ist ein Button in 16k Farben ein nützlicherer als einer mit 4 oder 16?) Dazu aber mehr in der Antwort an kko. Habe mir die Icons angesehen, bei den kleinen Maßen (wenige Pixel) glaube ich wird Irfan keine gute Arbeit leisten, vermutlich wird hier eine komplette Neuzeichnung nötig. kko: Excuse me, I am the one who uses 256 colors. ;-) My understanding of KM is -correct me if I am wrong- that it was written to be a lightweight browser for older hardware. If the "majority is using newer hardware" is an argument, than it is no need to reinvent the weel, we have plenty of browsers running on newer hardware, doing it mostly more confortable. So I think an argument for KM is that you don't need to throw your old (and btw. perfectly working, doing flawlessly texediting, etc.) equipment away and not to move on with the crowd and upgrade your hardware. Sure, I can nor will I impose my needs to the majority, but what is the point to develop a new browser if this majority is perfectly happy with what other, existing browsers already offer? About the system libraries. It is exactly my intention to discover which this libraries are and install them without reinstalling IE. (I presume we talk mostly about dlls here.) But before discovering I ask, maybe I don't need to rediscover something already known. desga_2: Hmm.. maybe being around too long in de.alt.folklore.computer changed my view about what is old and new. You see, just a matter of viewing point. Yes, this laptop is my newest. The point is, why to throw it away? I can mail with it, I can edit texts on it, I can print with it. And although not too fast and with weird looking graphics I can surf sufficiently with it to extract needed information from the net. My point is: Is a 16k button a better button? At least I don't use to admire buttons like in an art exhibition. I just push it and for that the only requirement is that it is different from the buttons next to him so I can differentiate them. That is all and for that 4 colors will suffice. Interesting thing about this laptop is, that it does 32k at 1024x768 on an external monitor and that by reducing the resolution to 800x600 it stays still at 256 colors on the LCD. Yes, I can see the icons, although not all shades of green. It looks like a green dot with different shades of green but not with a smooth transition between the tonalities. And than some perky red pixels. Eugen[/quote]
