I've just installed links2 from the pet, and am posting from it now (in Puppy Fire Hydrant). It is fast and works very well if you don't need JavaScript, which can be compiled into it but is a bit hit and miss (and I believe later versions of links don't have it).

Thanks cimarron, thanks rokytnji, for this info.

That opera version 24 is a 64-bit only version, right?

BFN.

Here is Otter Browser as mentioned by James C
Running in Dpup Wheezy 3.5.2.11
Problem is it needs Qt5 which I installed (5.2.1) via the official installer but it is not recognising my keyboard configuration so I can't type anything in.
Hopefully this could be resolved, just wanted to do a quick test out of curiosity.


hi OscarTalks,

yes the keyboard problem with qt5 has had me scratching my head.
this fix has solved the problem for me in other qt5 apps .. not tried in otter yet http://lists.qt-project.org/pipermail/interest/2013-October/009303.html

Hello 666philb,

Thanks for posting that. Looks to me like the missing space before the backslash is a typo bug in that file. The other similar lines seem to have the space. I think I will edit the file in my remasters and see if any unwanted side-effects crop up. I might take another look at otter browser when I get some time.

Any one wants an SFS for Opera-developer_25.0.1613 get it from here HERE its made for Fatdog64-700.

The discussion about how it's made can be found HERE.

Edit: Forgot to tell you.... I also had to install libnss which also installed libnspr as a dependancy in my Fatdog64-700.

Also still using Opera 11as full featured browser. For general day to day browsing I use Opera Mini. The trillions of extensions to be installed for Firefox was the first thing and still the main thing that puts me off from using it. Opera is also faster in my experience. The newer browsers are also getting massive in size, a problem for older machines.
Seamonkey is actually not too bad, is there a recent pet for the browser only (stripped of the mail, etc.)?

not sure if that would save much space due to the nature of how its built...very similar to trying to shrink libreoffice.
But same problem... getting too many crap sites using the latest javascript so blank pages are the result so need a newer renderer without the penalty of stupid bloat. There is that firefox fork called...erm...there's a thread on it here somewhere...which looked promising but it needs SSE2....supposed to cut out some of the surplus stuff.

libnss/nspr are mozilla libs ...usually in the path or linked to /usr/lib unless seamonkey/firefox are not present

Subject description: Slimboat is still floating in french schools
 

The famous Puppy by ASRI for Pupils and their teachers uses Slimboat (Petit Navire) without any trouble. And Pelo (myself) replaced old Firefox on european Lucid 525 named MetroPuppy by its hungarian producer. Why not Opera ? because too slow. Simboat does the job on old computers still alive in 'Ministère de l'Education Nationale'
Tried on Virtual machine to check the boot of an remasterized ISO of metro Puppy.

Hi pelo.

This is not the first time you've mentioned it. You're a fan of Slimboat,
aren't you? Frankly, I never had much success with it myself.

BFN.

Mike,

Was the firefox fork you were thinking of called Pale Moon? That one needs SSE2.

Another possible replacement for Opera (for those who want one) is Vivaldi, which is being developed by former Opera developers. I'm using it now in Sparky and it looks good.

Thanks, Colonel. May we have a link, please?
I've been using Opera for many years, currently 12.16; and usually under Lucid Puppy from rerwin.
I did look at Vivaldi in the past, but have forgotten how it seemed.

Thanks again,
Sheldon
