[quote=rodocop] [quote=Steve] I found these instructions too hard to follow. The zip is not self extracting to the right place. It wants to put news skins and other folders in the KMeleon directory under program files if I put it there and try to run it. Should I trust that?[/quote] Yes, trust it! You need to unpack zip-archive directly into K-Meleon folder under Program Files. This doesn't overwrite anything but only adds files into corresponding folders. [quote=Steve] Plus I discovered that I cannot get KMeleon to make itself the default browser overriding Chrome...[/quote] Look at [url=http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/forum/read.php?4,121695]this nearby thread[/url] for the right receipt. [quote=Steve] ... and I cannot get it to open new pages in a tab instead of a window. These are a major impediment to happy use.[/quote] Go to [b]Preferences -> Browsing -> Window Diversion[/b] and set prefs like this: [img]http://my.jetscreenshot.com/11315/20120213-ztdv-84kb.jpg[/img] [quote=Steve] Finally it was frugal on memory until I upgraded to 2 Gig. It seems to have decided that it should hog a bigger share after that.[/quote] Comparing to Chrome KM takes significantly less memory. My KM takes about 150Mb with 25 tabs opened and Chrome eats up more than 300Mb for only 9 tabs. But KM may show some 'freezes' when processing rich-scripted pages. This is one of real weak points in comparison with 'big' [s]brothers[/s] browsers. However, KM has plenty of tools to customize and limit script usage on pages to minimize this problem...[/quote]
