It's way too fast.

The world doesn't deserve wonders such as this one.

Indeed, but they do have fast tongues to catch their prey. smiling smiley

From Wikipedia:

The tongue extends out faster than human eyes can follow, at around 26 body lengths per second. The tongue hits the prey in about 30 thousandths of a second.

Apparently, you've never seen one run from a predator when forced to flee. If necessary, it will even run off a cliff, now that's fast.tongue sticking out smiley

I wanted to ask a couple of questions.

Do you think is a security risk to use k-meleon 1.6 alpha as my default browser? (It's the fastest thing to ever grace a celeron at 700 MHz.)

And, is there an approximate release date for this in-development version yet?

No idea if it's a risk for other users, but personally I'm surfing with javascript BLOCKED (occasional exceptions), with embedded objects (flash etc.) BLOCKED, Cookies BLOCKED, Java BLOCKED, Domain storage BLOCKED, popups BLOCKED, referer BLOCKED, Ads blocked (just the old basic built-in adblock version), pdf opening EXTERNALLY in sumatra, etc... cool smiley Ah yeah, and surfing on win98se tongue sticking out smiley And of course all those blocks with a handy button in the privacy toolbar, to quickly toggle on/off if needed grinning smiley
Well, don't know too much system stuff, just my impression that aside from such blocks the security mostly depends from the engine itself, which is gecko1.9.xx, so I'm risking it myself ;-)

Anyway, have you discovered the latest development version, "cp4" by desga, he has quite some bugs fixed from older "a4" cool smiley

Download preBeta (alias cp4) {Mirror}

Please use a fresh installation, not update previous cp versions.

Note that you need the 7zip program to unzip it!
KM1.6cp4 (preBeta) is a portable version, in the sense that it needs no "installation", just unzipping, and the user profiles are independent since they are created inside the program folder. You may need writing rights in that folder.

Ah yes, and if you're a real big fan of speed, there's a thread about "RamDisk" somewhere in the forum here, they say it's yet another incredible speed boost ;-)

I use 1.6.0a4 for my surfing and development work. I use Policies Manager and have had no problems.

it's too tempting, i've noticed various problems with javascript in the pre-beta, but it's so worthy because i no longer have the "stop script" warnings of the previous version, I had them on wikipedia, on how stuff works or any heavy scripted page (for a celeron processor) on 1.6 this doesn't happen.
