Subject description: 1Mb download
 

A small, easy and fast webbrowser: Kazehakase.
I used a Slackware version and added some libs.

Tested with Puppy 4.3.1. This browser should work on any Puppy with Seamonkey.

puppymartin .... Thanks for finding this and making the pet. I generally concur with your performance assessment .... However, on my AMD Duron 700 mhz box initial program startup for Kazehakase. is about 2 seconds compared to 10+ seconds for Seamonkey 1.1.5 and Firefox 2.0.0.20. That is with a few new local bookmarks added ..... Interestingly, if I import bookmarks from SM startup now slows down to near that of SM. This post is make from Kazehakase. Thanks again, KJ

Did a few more tests. Testbed was a Neoware e140 thinclient running a Via C3 @ 1ghz and 1 gbt ram booting from USB2 PNY attache 2gbt flashdrive.

OS was TurboPup Xtreme. OS was restarted for each test and Htop was first started and then the browser under test. This webpage was then displayed and Htop data was collected.

Turbo Xtreme and Htop alone: 18 M memory used and 9 tasks running.


Kazehakase started in <2 seconds.
This page showing in browser: 29 M memory used and 14 tasks running.

SeaMonkey 1.1.5 started in 11 seconds.
This page showing in browser: 42 M memory used and 16 tasks running.

FireDog (based on FF 2.0.0.20) started in 11 seconds.
This page showing in browser: 50 M memory used and 18 tasks running.

Note: SM and FD restart in about 9 seconds on this system.

Kazehakase may be a great add-on browser for slower systems as it starts and shuts down faster and uses less resources while running. Great Find ...KJ

The latest version is 0.5.8 (!)

Yes ..... An updated version would be great. Love to take it for a romp.

puppymartin ... I really like Kazehakase .... use it daily and don't understand why this thread has so little attention. Keep up the good work. KJ

Thanks for the pet. I'm always looking for small quick browsers and this one certainly qualifies. Posting with it right now. Smile

I agree... This is a GREAT small browser, and deserves much more attention.

I want to use this is a default browser, without Seamonkey installed, to reduce my ISO size...

But that will be pointless if Kazehakase needs LOTS of Seamonkey libs, as it will end up being around the same size as Seamonkey...

So, Is anyone aware of exactly which Seamonkey libs are required for this to work?

This "browser" is a very good frontend for the Gecko / SeaMonkey engine included in standard Puppy ISO. Uses less memory, starts faster and runs even quicker than SeaMonkey.

I need the latest version, compiled in Puppy 4.1 / 4.2 , so I can use it in Turbopup and older versions of Puppy (i.e. Puppy 4.12)
