a method to render page in webkit chromium engine in a kmeleon tab by using the chrome frame for ie plugin and the ietabplugin. this will require kmeleon 1.6 and xp and above naturally to install the chrome frame.
1- download and install the chrome frame enterprise edition from this link:
2- (if you already have google products installed or not concerned about google doing things behind your back you can skip steps 2 - 5). after installing, chrome frame installs an update service..you might want to remove it.
go to c:\windows\tasks and you will find 2 tasks for googleupdate and googleupdateservice..delete them both
now you will need to remove the installed service- you can view it in services msc
go to startmenu>run and in the run buffer type:
sc delete gupdate
this will remove the service
3- unregister the update dll from the registery
startmenu>run and type:
click ok, in regedit, do a search for goopdate
(not for goopdate.dll like in the snapshot above..just goopdate because the file name will differ if you're using non-english os like goopdatede.dll or goopdatefr.dll so just search for goopdate
there will be 2 keys pointing to the update dll, delete the first one and then contine search(f3) and delete the second one.
4- reboot your computer
5- go to c:\program files\google and delete the update folder- you can rename it if you want but it's now pointless and taking hd space
6- go to C:\Program Files\Google\Chrome Frame\Application and locate a folder called 'installer' this is useless backup of the chrome frame which takes about 85 mb..delete it to freeup hd space.
7- download this regkey and merge it in your registry
right-click>save target as)
this will enable kmeleon to use ietab for chrome and will also fix a problem in clicking links in chrometab that reverts back to the ie engine.
8- restart or relogin your pc
9- download this extension:
use kem to install or manually delete compreg.dat and xpti.dat from k-meleon\components folder. this is a slightly modified corelietab which will enable the chrometab..if you already use corelietab, just install it on top, it will not affect ietab browsing and you can still open pages in ietab normally by selecting sendpage/send link to>trident render.
10- restart k-meleon , right click on a page or link and select sendto >webkit render to open in chrome frame
your browsing history/cache saved passwords in kmeleon chrometab will be stored at this location:
C:[documents settings|Users][user name]\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome Frame\User Data\k-meleon\Default
