Subject description: a Dillo challenger
 

G'day,
Hv3 is a quick light Web Browser that works on Tcl/Tk. It renders and displays webpages better than Dillo and is roughly the same speed, In other words very very fast!

I have not tested the CPU load or Ram usage at this time, but appears slightly more than dillo (0.5mbs). With limited Java support occasionally makes WebPage navigation a little awkward if there's drop-down menus. Also, it resets/deletes everything on shutdown so Bookmarks and customisations are not there next start-up (this is a negative!). It also uses the polipo - A small and fast caching web proxy.

For basic, fast (very fast!) Web Browsing without all the bells and whistles - it's not a bad alternative to Dillo.

For more Information:
http://tkhtml.tcl.tk/hv3.html
and for a review http://www.freesoftwaremagazine.com/columns/h3v_web_browser_it_dillo_killer

I found a pet package on the Home page site but had troubles making it execute. So I packaged it for Puppy 3.01. It should work with later and earlier Puppy versions as long as Tcl/Tk is installed. I have added the Tcl/Tk dependency that works for me (grabbed from the amsn-0.97.2)
I have also added an internet menu entry.

Enjoy!

hmmm thats's the older version we used to use in series 3 Smile
have a look at this one Smile
here are the sources, you need to patch 2 files and download 2 extra deps, the reason for the extra deps is so that java-script will work, yes Java-script in this version
ftp://ftp.icm.edu.pl/vol/rzm1/linux-mandriva/devel/cooker/SRPMS/contrib/release/tkhtml3-3.0-0.20081201.6mdv2010.0.src.rpm
the picture below was taken on 2.14X Smile

Ps there are special building instructions in the sources

Subject description: Thanks ttuuxxx
 

G'day,
I had a look at the source code but, being a non-tech, is currently is beyond my understanding of compiling, which I have only done basic stuff.

Thanks anyway for giving us that link - when I've got a spare week to sit down and work it out I'll package a .pet for it. For now I will use, and be happy, that this version works as a basic, better than dillo, web browser (albeit one that's without java).

Cheers
Martin

Hi Martin

I had another look at your package and it looks like it was a static build, hmmmm Just wondering if you compiled it or repackaged it? The reason is that you stated that it was a bit too complex to compile the sources I posted but some how your package also has java-script without the extra files, and one large bin that would indicated a static-build or they added java script to the sources.

Anyways I made a settings addon pet below, basically it enables java script, the better icons and remembers the bookmarks. a real bonus:)

Just tried with wary090 and puppy511.

Both work ok including downloading (very fast).

Only complaint I have is the crappy font, found how to change font size but it stills just looks dotty! Is there any easy way to change the default fontset?

regards
scsijon

G'day,
Sorry I haven't replied sooner. Thanks for giving this add-on ttuuxxx (your the real-deal Puppy genius); and...
Yes! I did repackage it but with a desktop entry and an execute command. I don't think I said that I compiled it, just packaged it. I am a simple soul who finds shortcuts to many things Puppy. But those short-cuts tend to lead to mushrooms at times Wink

Cheers
