You can talk about issues with k-meleon here.
[quote=guenter] [quote=gordon451] I understand that it is Gecko, but that shouldn't make any difference now, as most webweavers code for FF and clones as well as IE. I went to have a dekko at [url=http://www.myschool.edu.au/]My School[/url] to see what all the fuss was. [b][color=#FF0000](I wish I could insert images into this forum!!!!!)[/color][/b] On K-M, the page is split into two parts: * a white background on the left, one screen wide; and * the text and other stuff on the right, one screen wide. OK. So do we have a bug? [/quote] 1.) K-Meleon is no Firefox clone. :( The idea to create a dedicated, slim browser based on the Gecko engine is several years older than the Firefox project. Galeon was the first, soon after began Camino and K-Meleon projects. All three use their respective OS native widgets in instead of XUL to create the graphical user interface. That makes them lighter and more responsive than e.g. Firefox. Under the hood of all these browser/GUIs works the same c++ programed HTML und script engine (GRE Gecko Rendering Engine) developed by Mozilla foundation. 2.) The code of the page is written for GRE 1.9.x (Firefox 3.x, K-Meleon 1.6beta). [url=http://www.w3schools.com/browsers/browsers_stats.asp]That is the most used html/browser engine currently[/url]. I assume the page has several versions for each major browser engine. K-Meleon 1.5.4 uses GRE 1.8. If You look into the ErrorConsole, it shows that K-Meleon does not know all used items. You would validate (e.g. the K-Meleon extension that helps with that) whether the split is the page's or K-Meleon's fault = bug. If the page code is full of errors it is the likely the page that has bugs else it is a K-Meleon rendering bug. K-Meleon project does not fix bugs in the rendering engine. The bugs in the engine are listed in bug tracker though. Currently the devs are working on K-Meleon 1.6/1.7. That introduces the neweer and IMHO more fault tolerant 1.9 Gecko Rendering engine.[/quote]
