Konqueror runs fine for me under GNOME. Only two small problems for me
1. Shortly after starting it for the first time, some part of GNOME (the
panel?) pops up a window saying that some program isn't responding to the
"Save" (?) message and asking if I want to kill it. If I do kill "it",
nothing happens. Probably some little helper program or something hanging
around that GNOME doesn't like. weird.
2. I've upgraded to the latest 2.1 beta Konqueror from Debian unstable,
plus whatever other dependant libs and stuff it needed (kdelibs?). It now
seems to have problems showing graphics in pages. But if I do a quick
back, forward after it's completed loading, they then show. Where's the
KDE bug tracker?
Konqueror is very nice. I like it, unlike Mozilla. Mozilla has given me no
end of problems. The M18 package in debian is acceptable if you know how
to work around its problems. I once downloaded a nightly build and that
seemed to work a little better. I recently got the 0.8 release and it
royally SUCKED! It would load up my home page incorrectly and crash after
I hit reload a bunch of times trying to get it to render properly. I
happened to download the "talkback" binary so I was able to send off a
good half dozen bug reports with "I just tried to view my home
page" descriptions in the space of a half hour :)
Does anybody else have problems with the supplied Mozilla binaries?
Could my problems be due to Mozilla being compiled on (I guess) a RedHat
box and the little incompatibilities between distros?
When will the Debian package be updated?
Grrr... I'm not happy with Mozilla.
