[quote=guenter] drongo, You seem to have a long list of must haves that YOU are going to make compatible for K-Meleon - so that YOU can use them and share them with me and others in forum. Thx in advance. :drool: I admit I was never as ambitious and productive as You, so I ported only a few extensions (that I wanted for myself) and updated only a few skins (to save the original creators some work). [img]http://necb.bizhat.com/kmeleon/icon_wicked.gif[/img] [quote=drongo] Well, i think k-meleon should use this site: ( perchaps to rent it :) ) https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/ .And use an XPI directly in k-meleion. I think, it is much better idea. Advantages: -user will be able to get an update automaticly -central good site with a lot off addons for any user. -search and installation process is more user friendly.[/quote] K-Meleon does not have the money to pay the traffic of a single day.:( If we had we'd give it to our few devs & not spent it on traffic. K-Meleon's devs deselected XPI installer service with good reasons. It is not save. You cannot use any XUL add-ons by default since K-Meleon has no GUI made from XUL. Xulrunner/Firefox XPI installer service has sn automatic application checking service. The extension creator/team must explicitly choose which applications are included in the supported list that is in each install.rdf. PPL would come here and rant this or that of 1000s of extensions does not install. And they would claim it is a K-Meleon bug. :mad: So far only the NoScript and NewsFox makers have selected to support K-Meleon. & PPL already come here and claim that K-Meleon developers or the members of this user forum & not the extension vendors are responsible for keeping extensions updated or compatible. BTW. did You have a look at NoScript home page. Because that is where NoScript updates for K-Meleon really are[img]http://necb.bizhat.com/kmeleon/icon_wicked.gif[/img]. Other disadvantages of automatic checking for updated extensions ... a la Firefox, with automatic wait for results of this phone home on each start. The browser starts slow. Which is bad in itself - apart from creating spying possibilities during the phone home. Pampering attracts seekers that complain and cite long lists of links what they must have. If we do not comply? Their next step normally - I go away because You do not help me to get my toy. And most do not want to see that for technical reasons K-Meleon team currently cannot combine K-Meleon's lightness with the full support of Firefox add-ons. [url=http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/forum/read.php?4,92574,92756#msg-92756][quote=drongo]that will have a full support of firefox add-on's without these 2 very bad things. [/quote][/url] The pampering of 'all extensions on one site' negates the responsibility of the individual user for the state of his browser - so it is IMHO the final cause of these '2 bad things'. BTW. I sometimes regret that Monkee-Sage, Sebastian and later I started to make some XUL extensions compatible for K-Meleon's use. These proof of concept adjustments just weted appetite for more. But the more jsbridge etc. the current K-Meleon devs created - the more is expected. & I was among the idiots that opened Pandora's box, sorry. :( Thx for reading my post. [hr] :O I was 3 or 4 minute late :D Well, he will not get his dream browser - without helping to create it.[/quote]
