[quote=guenter] [quote=nisim] I need to build website and I have on my computer ie7,fire fox,opera...but I have no ie6. and I can not install ie6 when I have ie7. Is it true to say that K-Meleon 0.7 is like ie6? I do not want to install platform that allow my to work ie6+ie7 in the same time because my computer is week. thanks[/quote] 1.)[url=http://tredosoft.com/Multiple_IE]Multible IE (e.g. IE 6 & 7) can be installed on the same machine[/url]. [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Layout_engine]But it is IMHO sufficient to test with the major browser engines.[/url] 2.) No K-Meleon always used the Gecko rendering engine. K-Meleon 0.7 used much less resources than IE 6. Similarities in browsers menu layout and items are AFAIR from Mosaic or even older browsers. 3.) The multiple IE mentioned above are independent of each other. p.s. Current K-Meleon can be used with any Windows32. It can run on 32MB with a 486/66 CPU and anything more modern just like old M-Meleon 0.6 & 0.7 did. So there is no need to use 0.7. K-Meleon is AFAIK the fastest browser to restart, that is ideal when You test Your pages. K-Meleon uses the same rendering engine as Firefox (which is a very slow starter). So You can check with K-Meleon whether Your pages will work with firefox.[img]http://necb.bizhat.com/kmeleon/icon_wicked.gif[/img] [url=http://www.w3schools.com/browsers/browsers_stats.asp]Firefox and IE 7 are currently the most common browsers, closely followed by IE 6.[/url] IE 4-7 are not HTML standard compliant. To check with 7 might be good enough. Coming IE 8 will be standard compliant like Firefox, Opera and all other new browsers btw browser engines. So I do not know whether it is still worth while to make extra codes for IE (unless You expect many visitors using it). For my page I checked whether it looked ok with IEs and optimized for HTML standard.[/quote]
