Flock running with Chromium core.

http://blog.chromium.org/2010/08/new-flock-browser-based-on-chromium.html
http://beta.flock.com/

First was Epiphany: Google 1 - 0 Mozilla
Second was Flock: Goolge 2 - 0 Mozila

What will be the third? Camino or K-Meleon? What is your bet?

Camino 2.0.4 (lastest release) included latest 1.9.0 version of the Mozilla Gecko rendering engine. Why not include Gecko 1.9.1 or 1.9.2?

If K-Meleon 1.6 is released, it will worked with 1.9.1 Gecko engine.

desga2,

Why Chrome as the engine for KM, somewhere down the road?

If you have to rewrite all code for future versions of Gecko you can take the oportunity for change the engine to WebKit, currently is better engine than Gecko.

K-Meleon is based in MFCembed of Mozilla, but this haven't Mozilla support and his code is very old and without maintenance. K-Meleon is affected by this and have some bugs that never can be fixed if Mozilla not fixed the MFCembed API code.

WebKit have better support and, as it's a new engine, have people working in the embed API to fix bugs.

It's like when you have an old car, you can spend a lot of time and money to repair it because you want it, but ever is better buy a new car.

Everything is better that Trident. grinning smiley

Camino is going to surprise everyone, making a version for Windows, allowing macro extensions and with that making life miserable for K-Meleon (I hope not). grinning smiley

If Km 1.7 will never be published, we should seek to find some alternatives.

Wow! I would really look forward to a KM based on Chromium!

If Km moves to Webkit, will all available extensions work or will they have to be rewritten altogether?

All Xul based items including pref panel would probably go down the drain. sad smiley
XUL is Mozilla only.

So I hope changing engines is not the path it has to go.

But I'd stay with K-Meleon even if it used Trident tongue sticking out smiley

Just use Google: "ie for linux" to find how 2 in a minute grinning smiley

Instruction at: http://www.liewcf.com/install-internet-explorer-6-on-linux-2242/

Thanks to WINE, you can run Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 on Linux quite well by now.
Techblogging shows us the instruction to install Internet Explorer 6 on Linux.

* Get recent wine.
* Add a new user named “windows” to your system.
* Use gksu -u windows xterm to open a shell as the windows user.
* Download dcom98.com and ie6setup.exe, save them to /tmp.
* Type the following commands:
cd
wget http://www.kievinfo.com/2/ie6_overrides.reg
wine regedit ie6_overrides.reg
wine /tmp/dcom98.exe
wine /tmp/ie6setup.exe
exit
* Now, you can run IE by following command:
gksu -u windows wine C:\Program\ Files\Internet\ Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE

An older Linux native version of ie also seems to exist: http://www.tatanka.com.br/ies4linux/download.html tongue sticking out smiley

I know it, but I think it's to be crazy to quit this shit of IE and to introduce it in a good os smiling smiley

Would it be K-Meleon without the gecko? I mean the green dragon.

Anyway, if it works under a good OS like win98 I would use trident as well.

I like the ease with which I can make changes using 'about:config' on Gecko engined browsers. Do browsers using Webkit as engine offer the same ease of making changes?
