I went to Youtube. I got this message

"Hey there, this is not a commercial interruption. You’re using an outdated browser, which YouTube no longer supports. Some features on YouTube may not work.

Please upgrade to a modern browser. Here are a few options:" IE, Opera, Safari, Google Chome & FirexFox download Links.

I am using the version 1.5.4.

Any ideas on Upgrading the Broswer version with up to date features? I really like this K-Meleon.

Thanks in advance.

The latest beta is pretty stable. Won't run under W98xxx, but will run under XP.

Look here.

K-Meleon need's only create a patch(if so inclined)for older computer users,
ie; win.98se .
I realise I have posted tisin te development section,an oversight onmy part,I apolagise to those "members" whom Ive ofended lol.
This post was initially intended for the off-topic section,as Robocop pointed out so kindly.
However,everything *does* seem to happen for a reason,and...because of my....error,Ive only proven that,indeed,Im not perfect,as Robocop seems to be,hence his choice of nickname seems to apply(or would cyber-bully be more fitting)

I simply wanted to bring to the attention of other users,that there are other options out there,that are available to those wo are not in a fancifull financial situation,like our good friend,Robocop.

It's a sad sad day,when one is chastised for being a humble family man,trying to feed a family of three(inc. my wife and just turned one yr. old),by doing what he can to shave *any* extra expenses off the monthly budjet....By simply asking a few questions,simply to extend,yes,the life of a...."dinasoeur"....
'Nuff said.

Seems like spam now.

There are 'Linux users' and 'Off-topic' sections on this forum - post such things there.

P.S. And sure, Kubuntu isn't lightest distro (neither the best choice) for old PCs in general.

It's not about OPINIONS, dude! Understand it and stop your aggression, please.

You've mistaken - OK! You've admited it and I see it but I can't turn back time and not to react in past :-)

This time my constructive is to keep forum clean and clear for all. Such misposting and thoughts chaos (I've left aside real spam bots) make it very difficult to read threads and find useful info.

So chill out, 'hot estonian boy' (c). Slow down, take it easy and have fun. That's what open source is ;-)

Peace please.

This is a moderated forum. You can ask moderators by mail or as a post in a thread to correct problems or e.g. move posts to another area of the forum (or delete spam, inappropriate, outdated, duplicate or erroneous posts that they have overlooked - this also applies when You want one of Your own old posts corrected, deleted...).

Please refrain from comments about other peoples language and language competence, unless You want tell them that we not in school and anything that is understood is acceptable. Or anything else that is nice and friendly. smiling smiley

Acceptable are posts in all languages, especially ones that understood by more than 1 visitor. grinning smiley

BTW. If You think that translation tools need to be used to communicate You should use short SPO (subject predicate object) sentences and try to say it both in English and in Your native first language. No matter what language You use some things are generally not a bad idea. Do not write words together, use the standard language of Your nation, use a spell checker, leave a space after commas and points... (unless You need or want to communicate only with ppl from Your own area). Translation tools are not fit enough yet to navigate around such handicaps.



Maybe inform new people on this or other things that make their forum experience better, when needed.


If I remember right it was the "I installed Linux" post that started the argument.

If one of the moderators (e.g. I) had realized that not moving the install Linux post to the Linux section of this forum would cause friction he would have moved it.

I personally thought that as a second thought the post was some help/idea what to do on older machines with Windows versions that are not supported anymore by Microsoft, so I let it go.

Thanks for posting in the K-Meleon forums.

С уважением

KM 1.6, 1.7 will work on win98 etc. You will need
http://sourceforge.net/projects/kernelex

And you should secure up 98, ME a bit.
http://www.angelfire.com/bug/dugbuglas2/OLDPC.html

Firefox stops at FF 3.6+ on a old system.
Opera 12 will work but you will have to get into
OPERA:CONFIG & turn off the Webgl &
Hardware acceleration.

Flash, you will have to go where the files are & set each file to run in winXP with
kernelex.
Java7 is kind of hard, but you can do it.
http://www.angelfire.com/bug/dugbuglas2/OLDPC.html

And I have some versions of KM, K-Meleon-1.7.28db+v10.7z etc...
It has it's bugs, but that is norm WIN 98 etc is 14 years old now.
And still running. It's a time machine! We all have Time machines!

not on win98/me alone, dugbugoffice2. opera 12's installer won't install on a native win98 or winme OS unless kernelex is installed and run in either win2k or winxp compatibility mode. Opera officially dropped win98/me support, starting with version 11.

jackylu has embedded an invisible web bug in his spam postings, using a redirecting url for tracking purposes

The proof:
http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/forum/search.php?2,author=2777,match_type=USER_ID,match_dates=0,match_threads=0

The redirect exposed:
http://longurl.org/expand?url=gbielin.info%2Fg.gif


Alas, viewing this posting has helped his wicked cause.

Alas, viewing this posting has helped his wicked cause.

The two posts were removed. They did not make sense anyway.

p.s. How did You find that he had posted an invisible picture and how does the scam work in detail?

His postings seemed odd to me so I clicked his name and then the link to the rest of his postings, those search results exposed the image url since he had written so little.

Realizing the image was a 'shortened' url I wanted to see what redirects it contained. My longurl link (a url revealing service) showed that an amazon affiliate link was among the targets, it also connects to an imgquick dot com and then to a series of random spammy websites where the image appears to be delivered from. It's a really tangled web by a spammer gaming the system. I can only guess at how it all pays off for these scum sucking sociopaths.

The amazon affiliate link is often different each time the url is loaded and the target website is often different as well. I suspect that all of these redirects are gaming the search engine spiders, leading to the usual sort of inbound SEO links that help the targeted domains. I thought that perhaps the "Amazon Associates" code (which always leads to a Kindle page, amazon's hottest selling item) might be generating money by delivering 'impressions' (views) but it turns out amazon doesn't pay for impressions like some ad networks, but they do say that "impressions.... data will allow you to more easily measure the performance of your Amazon links and determine which links to use to maximize your earnings." Which could mean that the spammer is placing these bugs in thousands of locations and using amazon's analytics to measure the traffic for each, which might reveal where the spammer could to return to in order to post more direct spam. I don't know exactly how amazon is being gamed but the spammer must have product links out there somewhere tied to his 'associate' accounts.

It works. You need to pull out the files with 7zip! Open it "Open Inside" with 7zip & pull out the files!
Before you set KernelEx open Opera & set the Opera:config settings
Webgl & Hardware to 0 or off. If you use Opera 12+

I would stop using the installers in an old system for Opera.

You will have to pull out the files from 7zip. Open the Opera.exe, with 7zip.
"Open inside" And pull out the files And run opera from there!
