  1. KbdTray Display keyboard layout in the system tray. This utility may be used as standard language bar replacement, which has some bugs on XP (occasionally loses position, increases taskbar height). The language bar should be disabled in "Control Panel" → "Regional and Language Options" → "Languages" → "Details…" → "Language Bar…" → uncheck "Show the Language bar on the desktop" (disabling it via toolbar menu may cause language bar to show again after logout). Download: kbdtray-1.0.7z SysTrayUtil Preserve system tray icon order. Note, that this program doesn't allow to move icons, it only preserves the order! Here are recommended programs to move them: Taskbar Shuffle — Drag taskbar items and tray icons. Shell Tray Info — Display system tray information, move icons using buttons within program's window. Download: systrayutil-1.1.7z WPA Supplicant Manage wireless network connections. WPA/WPA2 supplicant. This program is useful on XP SP1/SP2, which don't support WPA/WPA2. It has supplicant service and GUI utility to manage connections. There are some alternatives, like (probably the most shilled here) Boingo Wireless, but they all are proprietary and have ugly GUI. I was surprised to find that WPA Supplicant was maintained for Windows decades ago, but faced some problems when tried to use it. So, it's not my project, I just added some bug fixes and cosmetic patches. All these patches are included into the archive. Download: wpa-supplicant-0.7.3.7z -------------------------------------------------- I made/modified these programs just for fun. I doubt I'll seriously maintain them, but I thought they might be useful for someone here (it seems to be a pretty large XP users community). There is README.txt file in all archives with further instructions to install programs or build them from the source code (included into the archives). All links are archived on web.archive.org (just in case somebody will want to use these programs in 2030, who knows). I didn't try to use these programs on Windows 2000, but they probably will work.

  2. This post will expand as time permits... Note regarding versions: The regular version will have a file name ending in _rebuild_#. Versions with a file name ending in _ungoogled disables embedded Google APIs in much the same way that "ungoogled-chromium" ( https://chromium.woolyss.com/ ) disables embedded Google APIs. The "ungoogled" version is recommended for those that prefer tighter control over a Google-based browser basically giving special treatment to Google cookies and violating user preference settings. A side effect to this approach (which also exists in "ungoogled-chromium") is that the Chrome Web Store is intentionally broken only in as far as the "Add to Chrome" button is concerned. This is great for those that prefer to manually install extensions as opposed to obtaining from the Chrome Web Store. A workaround to restore the "Add to" button (special thanks to @VistaLover for this solution) can be obtained from here -- https://github.com/NeverDecaf/chromium-web-store Mileage may vary, for me this only added the "Add to" button but clicking it only downloaded the extensions .crx (which I personally prefer anyway) as opposed to 'adding to' 360Chrome. I had similar results with official "ungoogled-chromium" on the official Chrome Web Store (restores "Add to" button but does not actually 'add to'). Special thanks to @Humming Owl for translated .png files. Special thanks to @Dixel for discussions leading towards the "ungoogled" versions. Special thanks to @we3fan and @Humming Owl for the XP x86 SP2 .dll modifications.

  5. 1. Hardware Certainly more powerful computer you have, more faster building your will get then, consider two cores CPU and 4G RAM will be sufficient. Also i suggest to have two hdds, the first for source, compiler, build tools and the second for output. 2. Virtual drive If you have more RAM it is good to make virtual drives, no need second hdd then. Why this you ask, so building things such as browsers put heavy stress on the hdd, with ramdrive you save hdds life and increase building speed greatly. For last time i used 10gb drive for all stuff except compiler 3. Software 3.0 OS For msvc build win7+ is required,, and assuming you have x64 3.1 Git Download at https://git-scm.com and install, i did not try portable, but you can i think. 3.2 Compiler I do not like regular Visual Studio, with its junk and onlineness requirement, so i do not use it. Good Microsoft cares for me too, and made available good build tools without junk. They are in the iso file, and ready for usage anywhere, no need to do install. Download, unpack or mount iso. EWDK with Visual Studio Build Tools 15.6 May want to delete files vctip.exe in "Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\BuildTools\VC\Tools\MSVC\14.13.26128\bin\Hostx64\x64" and same on x86, they leak data to internet (spyware and telemetry) 3.3 DirectX SDK Download june 2010 and install 3.4 Mozilla build tools i use version 3.2 But for building on winxp the latest version is 2.2 You are to craft own bat file for use with alternate compiler. Write your actual paths there and put inside MozillaBuild floder (C:\mozilla-build). assume EWDK on G: @ECHO OFF SET TOOLCHAIN=32-bit SET MOZILLABUILD=%~dp0 SET MOZ_TOOLS=%MOZILLABUILD%moztools SET INCLUDE="G:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\BuildTools\VC\Tools\MSVC\14.13.26128\include";"G:\Program Files\Windows Kits\10\Include\10.0.16299.0\shared";"G:\Program Files\Windows Kits\10\Include\10.0.16299.0\um";"G:\Program Files\Windows Kits\10\Include\10.0.16299.0\winrt";"G:\Program Files\Windows Kits\10\Include\10.0.16299.0\ucrt" SET LIB="G:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\BuildTools\VC\Tools\MSVC\14.13.26128\lib\x86";"G:\Program Files\Windows Kits\10\Lib\10.0.16299.0\um\x86";"G:\Program Files\Windows Kits\10\Lib\10.0.16299.0\ucrt\x86" SET PATH="G:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\BuildTools\VC\Tools\MSVC\14.13.26128\bin\Hostx64\x86";"G:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\BuildTools\VC\Tools\MSVC\14.13.26128\bin\Hostx64\x64";"G:\Program Files\Windows Kits\10\bin\10.0.16299.0\x86";%PATH% %MOZILLABUILD%msys\bin\bash --login -i (bat file may be need rewrite) 3.5 Other software For virtual drive SoftPerfect RAM drive free 4. Source 4.0 Download source Your are type commands in the command line, i prefer far manager assume you installed git on c:\dev\git C:\dev\git\bin\git clone --no-checkout https://github.com/roytam1/UXP.git you will get new folder UXP where there actual source packed inside .git folder 4.1 .mozconfig Enter to the UXP folder and create there text file named .mozconfig this will be your building config mk_add_options MOZ_OBJDIR=d:/dev/uxp.32 mk_add_options MOZ_CO_PROJECT=browser ac_add_options --enable-release ac_add_options --enable-application=application/basilisk ac_add_options --enable-optimize="-O2 -GF" ac_add_options --enable-jemalloc ac_add_options --disable-debug ac_add_options --disable-accessibility ac_add_options --disable-necko-wifi ac_add_options --disable-skia ac_add_options --disable-tests ac_add_options --disable-webrtc ac_add_options --disable-webspeech WIN32_REDIST_DIR="G:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\BuildTools\VC\Redist\MSVC\14.13.26020\x86\Microsoft.VC141.CRT" WIN_UCRT_REDIST_DIR="G:\Program Files\Windows Kits\10\Redist\ucrt\DLLs\x86" Pay attentions on this things 4.1.1 MOZ_OBJDIR This is where it will get built files, may out anything valid path, prefer another hdd or ramdrive. 4.1.2 --enable-application This choose what it will build basilisk-serpent or palemoon-newmoon, or other thing any anotherapp\anotherstuff 4.1.3 MOZ_MAKE_FLAGS Usually when you build all computer power you have is ocuppied, therefore you hardly can do other things, however with mk_add_options MOZ_MAKE_FLAGS="-j1" it will build slower time but for example you can play heavy 3d game in the same time. 4.2 Unpack source and apply changes Unpack source for custom branch (assume custom is right branch in roytams source) C:\dev\git\bin\git checkout custom apply patches if needed or edit files by hand C:\dev\git\bin\git apply --ignore-whitespace file.patch 4.3 Save changes to the git If you not going to publish dont bother, thoug i can write about. 5. Building launch your bat file inside mozillabuild (look 3.4) assume you source folder in C:\dev\uxp type cd /c/dev/uxp then enter type .\mach build then enter So it begins, if you set another destination drive building will stop with message: 1:23.14 ValueError: path is on drive c:, start on drive d: 1:23.18 *** Fix above errors and then restart with\ Well, let them fix: edit the following file d:\dev\uxp.32\_virtualenv\Lib\ntpath.py go to the lin 527 and put # signs, this will cancel the stupid code # else: # raise ValueError("path is on drive %s, start on drive %s" # % (path_prefix, start_prefix)) Keep then _virtualenv to not bother with this again If you get error you can look for details in D:\dev\uxp.32\.mozbuild\last_log.json That's all for now, happy building...

  6. If you're a user of JustOff's "GitHub/GitLab Web Components Polyfill" extension, this has been very recently updated to v1.2.4, to mitigate mainly GitLab introduced breakage... https://github.com/JustOff/github-wc-polyfill/releases/tag/1.2.4 For those not in the know, this extension is indispensable to users of UXP-based browsers (official ones and forks) to enable them to work properly on these two popular web-hosted code repositories... After Microsoft acquired GitHub some time ago, they let go the old team of developers and quickly turned that platform (github.com) to target mainly their new "child" of a browser, Chromium-based Edge ("affectionately" also called ChrEdge...); support for "legacy" browser engines was dropped like a hot potato, their introduction of Web Components necessitated the creation of said extension for GitHub (because the venomous upstream devs couldn't port Google's WC APIs to UXP...). GitLab resisted more the implementation of WC on their codebase, but it has been steadily happening over the course of 2021; the extension was extended (pun intended ) to also cover gitlab.com pages on UXP browsers... In a move reminiscent of the pair Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome, GitLab is now in hot pursuit of GitHub: not only are they embracing WC for everything (even emojis ...), they have recently dropped support for Firefox < 78.x.x (breaking GitLab compatibility with WaterFox Classic, SeaMonkey and, of course, UXP-based browsers ) ; in doing so, they introduced RegExp with Named Capture Groups (a subset of V8 regexp code), which is only found on Fx >= 78.0 ; the latest extension update to v1.2.4 tries its best to remedy above changes... JustOff also extends an invitation to our "own" @roytam1 to consider porting RegExp with Named Capture Groups to our UXP fork, since a WaterFox Classic developer already did it there... But, without being a coder, I fear this task presents serious challenges, because WFC is Fx56-based, while UXP only Fx52-based; plus, there's a lot of code to be tested and merged as it is... Usability details: Those with the extension already installed in Serpent 52.9.0 should have been already auto-updated; those who want to install it for the first time on Serpent should install it directly from GitHub; those using New Moon 28 must first download the updated .xpi to disk and manually modify its install.rdf file (to target New Moon 28 proper versions) prior to installing it; I have explained all this in detail in relevant previous posts... The extension works as intended on fairly recent versions of UXP (older versions of Serpent and NM28 - recently put in the spotlight for generating better benchmark results - lack needed APIs to sustain the correct functioning of GitHub/GitLab pages). In the not-so-distant past, the extension could be force-installed on FxESR 52.9.x to restore some percentage of GitHub functionality, but M$ have broken it so much during these last three months, that such an installation is now moot... Affected in the same manner is Serpent 55.0.0; its web engine is considerably behind UXP (but better than FxESR 52.9.x's), force-installing the extension there will now only achieve very few github.com parts working as intended...

  9. You can try my Vista compatible rebuild. Though some specific functionality may still be missing. Patches required to get the latest version 3.16 to compile with MinGW32 included. I have a repo with old Rufus code on GitHub, wanted to publish it there, but they changed something about the login procedure. Maybe I'll figure it out some other time. rufus-3.16.zip

  12. Hi I don't have any 360loader.ini. Does v12 have one? You do not need "loader.ini" to have "User Agent" in Chrome, it is necessary to create a shortcut of your PRG 360Chrome.exe and then add in the properties of the shortcut the definition of the user agent, and then You verify with this address its operation by running the shortcut of the PRG. You have to leave a space between "and --

  13. @ClassicNick - If you'll forgive me for speaking up (and of course I'm always glad to hear @ArcticFoxie's input on these sorts of topics), I actually tested Roy's most recent build of New Moon 26 (the first version with the cubeb overflow fix), and found it still works very well for a fair number of sites. However, I wasn't able to get this forum to display properly in it (I couldn't even load the message box to type and send a reply), and YouTube videos won't work because YT seems to have deprecated VP8/WebM support some time ago (Invidious doesn't work in NM26 either). Since NM26 lacks MediaSource, lav dlls can't be added, but they do work with NM27. NM27 works with YouTube and with this forum; it's the only browser Roy maintains which has four optimized builds (Win32, Win64, SSE and IA-32), meaning it will run on literally ANY XP compatible hardware (even pre-MMX Pentium, which is the bare minimum for XP). For what very little it's worth, NM27 also displays emojis properly (NM26 uses black-and-white fallbacks, even if you natively install the Twemoji font to XP). NM28 will work with more sites overall due to its more advanced UXP engine, but NM27 targets older hardware better by loading mobile versions where applicable for some sites (and additional custom user agents for certain sites can be established in about:config). There is an SSE-optimized version of NM28, and I doubt it would run that much slower overall, but you will get a speed boost with NM27 (in fact, I'm going back to NM27 myself due to the superior speed overall). Both NM27 and NM28 should work fine if you keep JavaScript turned off as much as possible, but NM27 will use your 512MB of RAM better than NM28...it is the oldest browser I've tried, after tons of testing, that can still keep up with the modern web fairly well. At one time I would have recommended Opera 12.18, but it is showing its age and while it can still be used with a fair number of sites, you will not have a great user experience because the web has changed too much for its aging Presto engine to consistently manage. If you want more compatibility, NM28's your best bet, but if you need speed NM27 still has good compatibility and a faster engine. I hope this helps!

  14. This information was added on 31 August 2021 https://betawiki.net/index.php?title=Windows_Vista_build_6003&oldid=153735 I understand that it might look suspicious when someone's first post looks like mine . In my opinion the extended kernel should target Windows Vista with 6003 and SHA-2 updates but without KB4341832, KB4090450 and KB4089229 - meltdown/spectre patches that slow down the CPU. Also, I have an AMD Ryzen PC so if @win32 decides to make a patch for Ryzen problems I can test it and send some logs.

  15. Your skepticism is perhaps not unwarranted. I couldn’t help noticing that the BetaWiki link currently says “Last edited 5 days ago,” which was the same day the “news” appeared in this thread. Where did BetaWiki learn about this “new version of the HAL driver which fixes the corruption bug that affects Intel CPUs based on the Haswell and later microarchitectures”? Obviously not from the Microsoft link provided under References, which does not mention HAL at all. You also have a valid point that this discussion is rather OT here in the extended kernel thread. It might have been better to resurrect Server 2008 Updates on Windows Vista. (My link leads to the point where contemporaneous discussion of build 6003 began, but you wouldn’t find anything about Haswell+ issues there. Personally, I was rather concerned about 6003’s potential to break software that worked on 6002, and there were a few such instances.) Or perhaps Compatible hardware with Windows Vista, which AFAIK was where Haswell+ issues were first documented. On the other hand, I would very much like to hear what @win32 has to say about this HAL discussion. Your forum style is perhaps overly aggressive. I wouldn’t be surprised if TSNH feels offended, because I was once offended by one of your attacks. Let’s seek the facts without any flame wars.

  16. 4e is in relation to a user who is posting about a project they have created or is involved in, that is vaporware, or that the person is making promises about accomplishing something in the future but doesn't live up to the promises. So it is not relevant here, since the entity that made this so-called Vaporware is Microsoft and not the person who posted a link to it. Since Microsoft doesn't have an account, they can't get banned for posting about vaporware or have their posts deleted.

  18. Microsoft’s article on KB4493471 (April 2019) and associated links don’t appear to mention Hardware Abstraction Layer at all. Since it was a monthly rollup, any subsequent monthly rollup would presumably include the undocumented changes and perhaps even undocumented bug fixes related to those changes (but the Security Only updates might not include anything of the sort). If one were to install e.g. KB4499149 from May 2019, they should be able to duplicate your results and would also be patched against the once-infamous BlueKeep vulnerability. It might be worth noting that the SHA-2 update KB4474419 was not a monthly rollup, although installing it would change the build number to 6003.

YES; remove the LAV dlls adjacent to basilisk.exe, exit browser, relaunch browser and test: http://demo.nimius.net/video_test/ https://tekeye.uk/html/html5-video-test-page http://camendesign.com/code/video_for_everybody/test.html http://www.html5videoplayer.net/html5video/mp4-h-264-video-test/ https://ophi.org.uk/test-html5-video/ These DLLs have been updated by roytam1 on Sep 25th, 2021 ; they are based on FFmpeg 3.4.9 Those were based on FFmpeg 3.1.1 What does that even mean? What type of CPU are you on? If it supports SSE2 instruction set, download the default package; if it supports up-to SSE, download the ia32 variant; for even older CPU, give the noasm variant a try... The links are for the 32-bit architecture; the extracted DLLs must be placed adjacent to palemoon.exe (for NM27) / arcticfox.exe (for ArcticFox-Win); the browser has to be restarted to successfully load the DLLs...

  21. So in order to succesfully bypass iTunes os checks you need to do this: BEFORE YOU BEGIN! I only tried this on Windows 8.1 Fully updated up until september 2021 patches. I have no idea if this is going to work on Windows 7 too. Windows 7 works up until 12.11.3. Later versions require ntdll.dll and dxgi.dll from newer operating systems. Windows 8.1 works without any problem. 1) Download iTunes from apple. 2) Extract the installer 3) Edit the main installer with orca (drop table LaunchCondition) 4) Install iTunes and all of its components 5) Do not launch! - Download this: https://github.com/hejmus/win10verhack/releases/tag/v0.1 6) Put these files in iTunes install folder 7) Open notepad and put this in: withdll.exe /d:win10verhack64.dll iTunes.exe 8) Save it as Launch.bat on your desktop (since iTunes is located in Program files and you would need Admin access) 9) Put launch.bat to the iTunes install folder and open it 10) Done! (Optional, put launch.bat as shortcut on your desktop)

  22. I used to say Windows 10 is worst Microsoft operating system, but I have to take my word back, Windows 11 way worse . I did more testing with it more on my isolated lab network (Yes I highly trust new MS products). It is pain to configure for deployment. Yet have not found way to configure start menu template properly. Was way easier on classic start menu since mostly needed drop files to sample user folder on image or server. ADMX templates on servers need to be replaced. Also I do not like built in android emulator, because it may take developement away from win32 and 64 (or appx if someone even uses that). When Microsoft will enable it somepoint I really hope they add GPO option to disable it (more replacing files on server yey!). And worst of all it feels like running Windows 95 on 386 with 4mb ram despite test hardware is fast enough (ryzen 5 3600). I keep having high cpu usage from edge. And do not get me started on Windows 365. It is like returning to terminal era where all client systems were dumb terminals connected into company mainframe that generally was leased off big company like Digital or IBM that charged per cpu cycle at worst. I really really hope my or other workplaces wont get it. I see huge security risk on that too. Imagine your hard drive being on cloud and then someone hacks that service and downloads all of virtual disks. There goes trade secrets and others. I really wish could have had something positive to say, but Microsoft did not learn anything from Windows 8 or Windows 10 and future of computing looks dark . Well since it will be shoved down everyone throat who works on IT (or anything with computers) without questioning, time to start testing deployments. I have not tested, but pretty sure using bios will fail on MDT since Windows 11 needs uefi. Then test automated installations and other things.

  29. Updated links for my v11 and v12 rebuilds. Might be another day or so before I can update my v13 (I haven't visited it in a while and unsure of how many fixes/tweaks it is behind relative to v11 and v12). These fix a Google "feature" present since Chrome v69 where a Google cookie is stored in 'local storage' and does not clear on exit despite the user's preference to clear cache and cookies on exit (so no real effect for those that keep cookies from session to session). It also disables a few depracated embedded APIs (that were disabled in early v13 rebuilds but not 100% positive if they remained disabled in later v13 rebuilds after I merged my rebuild notes with some Humming Owl tweaks). A quick note - an easy way to UPGRADE and KEEP your current profile (needs performed when 360Chrome is closed) -- navigate to your CURRENT Chrome\Application directory (contains two folders and two files), DELETE the two folders and two files, COPY the two folders and two files from the below .zip into that Chrome\Application directory. When UPGRADING, you keep your existing 360Loader.ini, 360Loader.exe, and Chrome\User Data folder untouched. https://www.dropbox.com/s/v45xr0pj9g4ka7a/360ChromePortable_11.0.2031_rebuild_2.zip https://www.dropbox.com/s/aozhovtrevt4dii/360ChromePortable_12.0.1247_rebuild_6.zip

I always reply, "Less than yours" and they just laugh like I don't know what I'm talking about. So I always have to prove it to them! So I ask them, "How often do you do laundry?" Typical answer is always EIGHT TO TEN loads EVERY WEEK! (Families with one to three kids). $0.1029 per kWh. Me -- 50" LED TV = 95 watts turned on 16hrs/day = $4.76/month 32" LED TV = 55 watts turned on 2hrs/day = $0.52/month 20 watts per monitor turned on 10hrs/day = $3.15/month TWO loads of laundry per MONTH -- washer roughly 1000 watts and a 30 minute cycle = $0.10/month... dryer roughly 3000 watts and a 45 minute cycle = $0.46/month So just the TVs/monitors/washer/dryer runs me roughly $8.99/month (my bill is higher than that, throw a refrigerator and your air conditioner costs in the mix and those with washer and dryer are bulk of electric usage). Them -- eight loads of laundry every week = 32/month... no TV factored in, no computer factored in... washer = $1.60/month dryer = $7.36/month $8.96/month (their TV is costing them more than $0.03/month - I win!) Them -- ten loads of laundry every week = 40/month washer = $2.00/month dryer = $9.20/month $11.20/month (I win!) Eight to ten loads of laundry per week seems EXCESSIVE to me, but these people SWEAR BY IT. I'll rotate through three pairs of jeans for two to four weeks between washes. I honestly cannot fathom how a family can run the washer and dryer DAILY let alone WEEKLY, but again, they SWEAR BY IT.

  31. Also while some people get an extra cable TV box for a different room in the house, I have two cable TV boxes right here in my little corner of the universe. And an audio mixer that plays BOTH of the TVs and my brain is trained to be able to follow the audio on one and tune the other out, then switch on a dime and follow the opposite TV and tune out the other. Not that both TVs play 100% of the time, depends on the "news" of the day. And when I watch sports, I only "watch" sports, I seldom actually "listen" to sports (dislike broadcasters not rooting for the same team I'm rooting for!).

  33. Updated links for my v11 and v12 rebuilds. These now by default assume the user wishes to keep cookies from session to session (my logins would stay logged in from session to session, "mileage may vary"). I personally clear cache and cookies at every browser exit but several users new to my builds prefer session-to-session workability and more advanced users will know how to change settings and the loader .ini for more advanced needs. https://www.dropbox.com/s/2roh9848dwapzy1/360ChromePortable_11.0.2031_rebuild_1.zip https://www.dropbox.com/s/55z2z082oeu87m9/360ChromePortable_12.0.1247_rebuild_5.zip

  34. Installing KB4493471 will fix it somewhat, however, on occasion I still get a "Login initialization process has failed" message, but it isn't often. I would say that the bugs aren't fully fixed, but are greatly reduced.

  37. ... Serpent 52.9.0 on WinXP doesn't rely on LAV dlls for h264/aac decoding (i.e. playback); it uses a modified ffvpx third-party library; just make sure media.ffvpx.enabled is in its default value of true (FWIW, under Vista SP2 and higher, St52 defaults to using WMF system - OS - codecs; it can be configured to use ffvpx there, too, by disabling media.wmf.enabled; do note that ffvpx doesn't use H/W h264 decoding (Win7+), if your gfx card supports it, that is...). TL;DR: You should remove LAV dlls from within the Serpent 52 application directory! LAV dlls for NM27 (and related forks) were recently updated: https://o.rthost.win/palemoon/lav-dll-lite-3.4.9.7z https://o.rthost.win/palemoon/lav-dll-lite-ia32-3.4.9.7z https://o.rthost.win/palemoon/lav-dll-lite-noasm-3.4.9.7z Download the variant that is compatible with your CPU...

  38. No worries. I like "test" and "benchmark" sites but in the end it is usability that trumps test/benchmark "results". There are some "benchmarks" out there that when you see the "results" you simply have to roll on the floor in laughter. A FF-based browser which is quick and snappy and renders all 500 top-500 sites with ease will score 20,000 but an equally quick and snappy Chrome-based browser which again renders all 500 top-500 sites with ease will score 40,000 on the same exact OS and hardware. "Yeah, right!"...

  39. Now well wait until Microsoft will release Windows 12 and start hype it like crazy how it will revolutionize computing forever and is way better than Windows 11 . Then soon after it they will release windows 13 that will be unlucky release resulting MS go bankrupt because it requires quantum computer (that is only to load desktop that will still lag) that are not consumer market and google and others who got one refuses touch MS software on supercomputer . I am afraid Microsoft will jump to rapid release bandwagon and start bumping Windows version way Apple and Google does with IOS/Macos/ChromeOS/Android. F-91W is still best watch ever. It is dirt cheap and does what most new watches fails to, show me what time is it

  43. Thanks for the hint @RainyShadow, i created a userContent.css entry for the MSFN domain and will eventually make it available from the RetroZilla Community Edition thread. Didn't realize '@forum_member' was white on white. So far i've hacked something that displays '@forum_member' names, makes all white text visible, shrinks oversized/stretched avatar pictures and properly box wraps quoted text from previous posts (otherwise very confusing). Still no member signatures, needs tweaking but low priority. Forum member @Siria posted lots of info about this topic, will review this too. Spending time with modern browsers makes one realize how broken most sites appear in RetroZilla. By the way @Mr.Scienceman2000, your screenshot above is not visible in RetroZilla even with JavaScript enabled. I did see the picture on a newer system, thank-you for posting, always great to see other's setups. Thank-you also for your other posts and information. I meant a 200 MB MP4 file was big in the Windows 9x era for processing, not drive space, back when anything over 64 MB RAM was lots. For me MPlayer (not Windows' media player) is still the leanest for daily usage. Agreed on the smartphone, adds another layer of complexity that can lead to breakdown. Being without a phone for even a single minute makes me laugh, i am not overly social to begin with but there are many days my flip phone doesn't get turned on. I wish you well @Gansangriff with your FrogFind contribution. Maybe i'm wrong, looks like the project currently uses Google, so evil. Thanks for your contribution @ArcticFoxie, mental health and social media is a big issue, amongst so many big issues. A neighbour was so distracted last year, using her smartphone in the driveway before taking off, she almost hit a kid riding a bicycle on the sidewalk. Middle of the day, good visibility, big/tall enough kid, mother nearby. This is getting really crazy. Your system with 98Lite is vanilla enough @Mr.Scienceman2000. The 'vanilla' nomenclature started for me during an episode of much frustration over what software versions actually ran on a default Windows 98 install. The forum was littered with many confusing posts of systems running KernelEx or various upgrade pack combinations. So to me you've stripped Windows 98 further, whatever runs on your system should probably run fine on my 'vanilla' system. Your hardware and software tweaks are cool and amazing, should make for an extremely efficient and functional system. Two additonal Dillo web browsers were recently tested (downloads dillo-win32-3.0p9.exe and dplus-0.5b-setup.exe). Unfortunately one was buggy (crashed) and the other had limited TLS support, no longer functional on today's internet. Hopefully these projects will revive. I install Dillo as a lightweight, backup browser on my personal GNU/Linux systems, most times it's good enough.

  49. I was actually scouring some of my archives for an informed answer and @cmccaff1 posted while I was still scouring. I agree with everything that @cmccaff1 just posted. I personally take a "benchmark" approach and one of the benchmarks that I often use is called Basemark Web 3.0 -- https://web.basemark.com/ That particular benchmark would crash NM27 and NM28 - but please note that this pertains to versions a year old or so (I have been focusing more on 360Chrome lately than Roytam builds). But what I found at that time is that the OLDER (two years old versus one year old) versions of NM27 and NM28 would not crash when running Basemark Web 3.0. And you tied my hands in only offering those three options because my benchmarks show Mypal to perform better on low end systems. My personal favorite for low end systems is Mypal version 27.9.4. Mypal version 27.8.3 is also very good for low end systems. As is Mypal version 27.6.2. If I "had to" go with NM27 then my choice would be 27.9.1a1.win32-git-20180707. That version of NM27 should be able to do take anything you throw at it. My secondary backup for "modern" compatibility in the rare cases that 27.9.1a1.win32-git-20180707 won't work, I would use NM28's 28.1.0a1.win32-git-20180922.

  50. If you want , I can send you [I think I had said it a very long time ago] my version, not only it has a good dark theme , but with dark webpages (inverted) . Plays 4K on youtube [even wih XP] and has no russian language . With zero russians involved during the building process. Also , it can pretend to be an iphone without detection. Due to my laziness, it still has minor English language misspellings. I should say they are more like a weird translation made by a non-native speaker. {but not russian , lol}
