Hey, GG.

I don't know whether there's a .pet for this kicking around the forum anywhere. I've been doing some searching around for you.....and, although there are plenty of older versions available out there, they're almost all of them Windows .exes.....there's hardly any older Linux versions out there at all.

I can only presume that you want this particular version for a specific reason. The 3.8.5 version compiled for JP-431 seems to run A-OK in the widest range of Pups; would that not do you? It's more secure than the 3.7.2 version, which was known to be vulnerable to a 'denial of service' (DDOS) exploit a few years back:-

I have a copy of this in my MediaFire a/c, here:-

Hi Mike - thanks for the links. I tried the -jp version (as well as others) but for some reason I get constant ssl errors. I can only make QtWeb run if I accept the "Yes to all" choice when ssl errors are thrown up - and that simply ignores the errors which I assume is a risky approach.

I particularly want a lightweight browser for a laptop I have that lacks the SSE2 cpu flag and i am finding that some of the older versions of browsers are more suitable than later ones - hence the search for versions that other puppians use on similarly old hardware.
