K-Meleon based on Goanna

Unread post by JustOff » 2018-01-31, 16:45

I think the community will be interested to know that roytam1, best known here as the author of unofficial adaptations of Pale Moon and Basilisk for Windows XP, introduced the K-Meleon browser version based on the Goanna engine.

Here are the details.
Here are the add-ons I made in a spare time. That was fun!

Is there a Windows version available?
With Pale Moon by my side, surfing the web is quite enjoyable and takes my headaches away! :)

I suppose the more people that use Goanna the merrier we'll (eventually) be. Hopefully that will lead to improvements being made along the way.

I agree!
I do wish, however, that there could be a GNU/Linux version of K-Meleon.

I'd say it is unlikely to happen since K-Meleon solely based on MFC for UI stuff. Replacing MFC with wxWidgets/GTK/Qt requires a full rewrite(not to mention Gecko/Goanna support on such UI toolkit is more limited than MFC/Windows).
