Guys, the current version has some problems with Java..(i.e when you open too many pages with java it will hang-even if cache is made bigger)..

i think its high time for another release...

thanks

Use K-Meleon 1.6beta2 (STABLE with a few minor bugs) to have a newer JavaScript engine.

p.s. You will have to wait till the devs have time and inclination to update further.

It probably escaped You but the devs have a normal everday job like You (& this browser is only their hobby to do in their free time). This is no commercial project where You as a paying customer have at least the moral right to get an update.

Thanks.

@ ndebord,

(i.e when you open too many pages with java it will hang-even if cache is made bigger)

Means IMHO that PC or K-Meleon is not able anymore to run multiple JavaScripts.

I do not know whether that is any better with browsers that have a new generation JavaScript engine. You'd have to try.

Guenter,

My bad, I was thinking Java, not Javascript. Would like to see a test site (case) to double check for myself. Thanks for the info.

Maybe try to open several V8 Benchmark Suite version 5 pages to get an effect. grinning smiley

Do not use version 6 since that kills AFAIK K-Meleon right away.

p.s. Java did not make sense - it is an external application/plugin.

Which? Nobody will doubt that You have one crash or several. smiling smiley

Can You post a link to the home page? So that others can try to verify whether it is site, browser related or whether it happens only with Your install.

I tried with http://www.indiatimes.com/ as home page: No crash here.

I do not have a facebook account & cannot check that.

Try: Clear Cache. If this does not help You may have to start a new Profile to try with that.

Mysterious crashes are often from from corrupt cache and prefs.js in profile.
