Andreas,

Someone who know more should jump in on this one, but as far as know, you need K-Meleon 1.7a2 to do HTML as the Gecko engine for 1.7 is more advanced than the one in use for KM 1.6.xxx

Needed is a Firefox 4beta engine.

K-Meleon 1.7a is based on GRE 1.9.2.x which is not supported according to http://www.youtube.com/html5.

New Features of Firefox versions can be looked up in Wikipedia Firefox.

To me German Wikipedia seems slightly more informative on the aspect discussed here.

Greetings to GR and the US

Andreas,

My bad.... KM 1.6 and 1.7 do not do HTML5, you need a different underlying Gecko engine (the equivalent of FF 4) to do HTML and KM is one generation older than that.

Andreas,

Others who know more should jump in, but the short answer is no. When FF 4 officially comes out (they are up to beta 12, so release candidates should be out shortly), then KM can look to that FF4 underlying engine. But that is down the road and not any time soon, as we are still working on the previous Gecko engine(s).
