Works great.. and I'm pleasently surprised to see some CSS support from the new version!

However, any idea how to get some nicer fonts? The fonts I get are quite ugly.

I have several websites that when displayed in dillo the fonts are very small -- much smaller than the font appears in Firefox.

I have downloaded and installed the dillo_settings.pet.

Can the font size be increased or decreased while browsing? (Like using the mousewheel in Firefox.)

I don't think so don922, I think manually editing /root/.dillo/dillorc is the only way.

I was afraid of that!

The strange thing about this particular web site is that I don't have a problem with the font size using the version of dillo included in Puppy 214X. I have even copied the dillorc in 214X and tried it in dillo version: 2.2 -- but it didn't help.

If I knew the dillo version in 214X I would get rid of version 2.2 and download and install that version.

No they are not missing, they are not there by intention...

the general config-files are at
Code:
/etc/dillo

if we want to make user-config-files, we copy all files from
Code:
/etc/dillo/

to
Code:
$HOME/.dillo/

and edit those files.

The usual access sequence is, first look in $HOME than look in /etc for config-files.

if we include user-config-files in a/the package, previous existing ones would get overwritten, what would be not that nice, if a user has allready configured dillo before.

Well this is true for most browsers i guess... but sorry to say that: you'll notice much more differences between firefox and dillo... Wink

I have solved the problem of "small font sizes", at least on the websites that I was concerned about.

Unselecting Use remote CSS in the Tools menu allows the fonts to become larger, normal sized and very readable.

Cool, I didn't realise Dillo officially does css now.
Apart from that, do you guys think it has caught up with the GTK version yet?

Definitely, and it has surpassed them. I actually liked the tab handling in the 0.8* versions included with Debian, but those were neither official nor really had any extra features.

It has only surpassed the GTK versions in features at every front.

Hi Aragon,

Just to let you know - this also is working fabulous in Dpup-484b3 as well. Love it! I'm looking forward to going around and upgrading all my other Dillo installs ( from 2.0 to 2.1.1 ) so as to bring them all up to date. ( Only 9 more distros to go! LOL! )

Since Dillo-v2.0 has come out I've found myself using it more and more - and not just here about 90% of the time - but also elsewhere around the net due to its speed in rendering. It may not be always accurate in rendering a page but at least it always gives me the text - and after all isn't that the most important of all when digging for info? Wink

Thank you for your compiling dilligance Aragon as it's always greatly appreciated - and I'm afraid I don't tell you enough.

Amicalement/Cheers,

Eyes-Only

Ah, sorry. I meant to ask how it compares with the patched gtk versions like in Puppy, as they were basically what everyone used Smile

Ah, looks like it might take a while to get there.
- It is nice and fast.
- I too prefer the tab handling in the patched gtk versions than in this fltk version.
- It doesn't support javascript yet. Either there was a patch to support javascript, or the patch that extracted some urls or something from javascript worked quite well... the dillo version in old Puppies works for sites like megaupload.com (actually, it is the best browser to use, because it doesn't support flash to show the adds, and it ignores the instruction to make you wait to see the download link). The current version doesn't work.
- The css support is still so basic that I think I prefer it turned off.
- It fails to log on to some websites that the gtk version could (in addition to popping up multiple dialogues telling you that the server is not authenticated, instead of just one).
