  2. they tried hard to make me laugh :) "unable to cherry-pick"? actually not, unless they never release any new source. since they're still releasing source with every new versions, I can still make a diff and figure out which part of changes should be in same part. yeah they did that do throw me back to pre-VCS "stone age", but it is NOT the end.

  3. (Sorry, didn't have time to respond to this before.) I agree with your general point, but I'm not sure how much Google is to blame in this particular case. The thing is, programmers often tend to be pretty lazy when having to do maintenance tasks, because these aren't seen as "cool" and "innovative"... And this bug is a bit of a special case, because it takes almost 30 min to run a single test case, whether you're trying to track down where the regression originated, or trying to fix it. Let me give you a rough rundown of the process I went through with this (let's skip this long story for them normal people ; and this isn't about me looking for extra credit, honest! ) OK, so now consider that during virtually every step of this, you have to run a whole lot of 30 min (or longer) tests to make sure of your guesses or fixes. I am, of course, a great guy and all , but even with my highly vested hobbyist interest in solving this issue it took me several months to get through this all. Obviously not months of straight work on this alone, and obviously I didn't just sit around gaping at the screen every time I ran a test, but started the test and then did something else while it ran, but the whole thing still took time. Now, imagine I was an elite coder working at Mozilla , and generally supposed to work on some other stuff besides this. And, let's say you were my manager. Are you sure you'd let me spend all this time on this one, apparently (but really not) intermittent issue that seems to be affecting only a few people (really affecting all, but 99.99% of those people wouldn't put 2 and 2 together and notice the very specific interval and would instead write these freezes off as internet issues or whatever else) on a "legacy" OS that doesn't have that long to live anyway (or so you think, not knowing about POSReady, and MSFN )? And would I, an elite Mozilla engineer , want you to make me spend my precious time on something like this? I mean, even without the whole Windows driver dive and leak hunting thing they obviously wouldn't get into (the leak hadn't happened yet, either), it's a lot of work that isn't "cool", nor "innovative"! This is not to say that I excuse the fact that they don't even run tests for longer playback, etc., etc. We all know Mozilla has lots of problems with their attitude and policies, and there are many things they aren't doing that they should be doing (and vice versa). I definitely do blame them for letting this fall through the cracks and not doing more to fix this. But as far as Google goes, since they probably weren't using cubeb, maybe they themselves never ran into this bug (at least its more obvious, 2x:xx version), and since this isn't an issue specific to Youtube, I think I wouldn't blame them too much for this one. But there is Microsoft, who introduced this bug in the first place with that pretty dumb coding error...

  4. I guess this is my cue to stop procrastinating and finally post the fix I made for this I've had a few people test it for 4 months now on all kinds of sites on both XP x86 and x64, and the jury says this indeed fixes the 2x:xx video stoppage issue and doesn't seem to introduce any new problems. I honestly didn't intend for the testing period to be quite this long, but summer heat can have a detrimental effect on one's brain and thus plans. Since my own browser builds are based on Centaury, but I still consider myself a (lurking) MSFN patriot and this is the home of @roytam1's Serpent, I'm just going to post the fixed media/libcubeb/src/cubeb_winmm.c on Pastebin to avoid playing favorites (and signing up on Github ) I'm not sure how often @feodor2 visits here these days, so maybe someone on Github could mention this in https://github.com/Feodor2/Mypal/issues/1 if he doesn't pick this up soon enough. What has been tested: MP4/VP9/VP8 (and plain audio MP3/etc) streaming/local chunked/single-file sped-up/slowed-down 27+ hrs long playback (see the technical details for why) Youtube/Twitter/Facebook/Instagram/TV station streams/etc/etc (nor did we forget p0rn/pirate sites, which of course are no different from a technical POV... ). Among other things, a 75-year old lady watched the entirety of Prince Philip's funeral with this fix in effect and had no complaints. What has NOT been tested: Pale Moon-based builds (as opposed to Basilisk), because I don't use NM or Mypal. Since this is a UXP platform level fix, the front-end should have no effect. I obviously don't have access to every sound card out there, but since the MS driver causing these problems should be common in all configurations, I'd expect the fix to work with pretty much every card. new-fangled formats like AV1 (I'd expect them work, though). DRM-ed streams, since no Widevine on XP (but again, this should work with those as well if DRM itself worked). @roytam1, @feodor2 I didn't create a preference for turning this fix off, because it turned out the normal pref system is no longer compatible with C code, and once it became evident enough that the fix was pretty solid, I didn't feel like hacking something together to make preffing work for a library-level change like this. You're welcome to pref it, of course, but based on the length of testing with no issues discovered, I dare claim it's safe to include without a pref. Here's a general overview of why this problem was happening (you may be surprised ): And, some more technical specifics, incl. about where the 2x:xx times come from (this is also included as a comment in the source code): EDIT: Writing this up amply reminded me how much I LOVE making long posts using this board's post editor... BBCode FTW!

  5. I think there is more to the old operating systems than just internet. These machines are resources of creativity with the tools, that run on them. Writing programs, graphic programs, music programs, programming tools... even if there would be no internet at all, the old computers are capable of plenty of things. I can work best with the tools that I know best, which are the old tools. Okay, the resolution may not be the highest. But as long as the hardware runs (whose spare parts cost 0 money on the scrapyard)... it would be an uneconomic choice to switch. Consider the time you need to learn new programs! Speaking of Linux? Fantastic for modern internet browsing, but not if you need special tools. Sometimes, the Linux counterparts are poorly designed, too. LibreOffice will never perform as good as Word 97. In fact it performs worse every year! On limited hardware we have to add. My decision is set in stone. Windows XP until repairing the hardware gets expensive. On to the future with Windows XP!

  8. Whatever happens from here on out, I will continue to support @roytam1 in whatever he decides to do with his browsers going forward. MCP seems hell-bent on destroying anyone and anything that tries to get in the way of their 'vision' for their browsers. The way I see it, they're on a road to self-destruction...their browsers are going to fade further into irrelevance, while people will continue to follow Roy and many others and support their hard work. MCP and their browsers are going to become more and more the reflection of everything they were once fighting against, everything they had tried so hard not to have their browsers be or to themselves become. It is a shame that they could be so arrogant not only to XP users but users of the 'regular' Pale Moon and Basilisk, so greedy about the source code, and so selfish in not allowing people to take their work and build upon it. And yet, without Mozilla they would have had nothing to build from, no starting point to begin with. They were (and are) nothing without Mozilla, much as Atlas in Teen Titans was nothing without the mechanic who did maintenance (see the episode "Only Human"). When the mechanic abandoned Atlas he was battered into spare parts...and as people abandon MCP and/or if Mozilla themselves should see fit to abandon them, they too will be battered & broken. Thank you, Roy, for all of your hard work--I appreciate you and your efforts VERY much. It ain't over 'til it's over!

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  16. I'm not sure whether @roytam1 or other members here became aware, BUT: The story thus far: 1. MCP, effectively spearheaded by M.A.T.'s actions/decisions, forced the Centaury & MyPal forks into brutal extinction (sudden death I'd call it in sports terms...) 2. "Some person" (perhaps one supporter of those killed projects?) "flagged" M.A.T.'s GitHub account: https://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.php?p=220044#p220044 The story from now on: Chapter: Revenge of the enraged beast(s) 1. The UXP platform in its current form shall be NO MORE; the GitHub mirror of UXP (infrequently updated by M.A.T. after major Pale Moon releases) https://github.com/MoonchildProductions/UXP has been hidden/removed... 2. The main UXP development repo, hosted on Moonchild's own Gitea instance, has been archived and moved to https://repo.palemoon.org/mcp-graveyard/UXP 3. Development repos of applications Pale Moon and Basilisk have also been archived in https://repo.palemoon.org/mcp-graveyard/Pale-Moon https://repo.palemoon.org/mcp-graveyard/Basilisk 4. The development of the "new" Platform (tentatively named "Platform Codebase"), as well as that of the "new" Browser application pushed out by MCP (rebrandings are to be announced) WILL FOLLOW THE PATTERN OF BINARY OUTCAST APPLICATIONS, i.e. all code repositories SHALL BE PRIVATE (like the Interlink and Borealis Navigator ones are currently ), Source Code will only accompany the releases of executable forms (i.e. binaries). https://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.php?p=220136#p220136 (I don't want to publicly voice my opinion here, as, most probably, forum filters will censor it... ) The above effectively puts the New Moon 28/UXP and Serpent 52/UXP forks out of commission, and with 0 hopes of a new fork based on future MCP iterations... A most sad day, indeed...

  17. Greetings, everyone...I hope my presence here will not be unwelcome. I have been following the happenings on this website with great happiness and excitement for many years. It is wonderful, as a longtime XP user, to see what many of this site's users have been able to accomplish in keeping it a viable OS long after many mainstream companies started leaving it for dead. For me, XP represents Windows' finest hour--while retaining remarkable compatibility with many legacy applications and older hardware, it is still modern enough to be amazingly reliable as a daily-use OS. Hassle-free installation, easy to customize and tweak to your liking, and built on mature, stable code...MS truly outdid themselves. I wasn't planning to say anything, but in light of recent events I felt compelled to speak my piece on the situation at hand, and of course I am speaking strictly as a sideline observer. First of all, I want to say that I have tremendous appreciation and the utmost respect for @roytam1 and @feodor2. Their programming knowledge and dedication to maintaining XP compatible forks of Basilisk and Pale Moon is admirable by any measure (and Roy's other browser projects, past and present, are also commendable). Though I have admittedly been sticking with Roy's Serpent52 weeklies, I have tested some of Feodor's MyPal and Centaury releases and always found them rock-solid...I didn't have a single problem with any of the builds that I tried. I'm not going to comment on Tobin personally, only the way that he and his peers have handled the circumstances involving Feodor. I do not believe they have approached it diplomatically or respectfully--it definitely seemed like there was (and is) malicious intent. From where I stand they are completely in the wrong to attack Feodor the way they have. At the same time it seems they were given a reason and opportunity to attack because (if my understanding is correct, and please forgive/correct me if I'm overlooking anything major) the source code was not available or easily accessible for every Centaury build going back to the earliest (whereas MyPal builds always have the source code for the corresponding build available and accessible). I don't hold it against Feodor at all, because for what it's worth Basilisk builds are not as clearly definable as Pale Moon ones since Basilisk is more of an experimental platform for UXP that also happens to double as a worthy successor to the Australis-era Firefox (whereas Pale Moon is the 'main event', the featured attraction). What's truly ironic to me is that Basilisk was created as a way to maintain the Australis interface and restore features eliminated from Firefox, while the same applies to Pale Moon (except it's the 4-28 interface). You would think that the Moonchild developers' dedication to sustaining all of these different elements after Mozilla deprecated them would translate into great enthusiasm for those who are trying to sustain compatibility with older OSes. I've never seen any of them say anything remotely nice about Roy or Feodor (please correct me if I'm wrong)--I'd think they would actually be quite impressed with how they got their officially 'incompatible' browsers fully functional in an OS they abandoned. Instead of showing respect, honoring their hard work and working with them to get the best out of these browsers and out of each other, they have dismissed them and expressed great disdain not only towards them but those who (like me) prefer XP over later versions of Windows. I will say this, however: I do have tremendous respect for the Moonchild team & the effort they've put into their browsers for so long. There are definitely a lot of talented coders over at MCP, and I wish them all the best for continued success because their browsers have helped to keep alive all of the old features that we appreciated back then, and can thankfully still appreciate and make use of now. But though their browsers are good, when they express toxicity/hatefulness of the sort that I've seen, it makes their character look bad. I realize that this message has gotten very long, so I'm going to wrap things up here. From the bottom of my heart, I offer my most sincere gratitude to Roy, Feodor, and everyone else who is working on XP related browser projects (shouts out to @Humming Owl on the 360Chrome builds, as well as @ArcticFoxie and @Dixel [who I know are also doing their own builds], and everyone else who is helping to keep XP useful for the Internet and anything else you could ever want to use it for!) I hope you'll all keep up the good work, and that you won't lose your passion for this great OS...long live XP, and God bless everyone! -cmccaff1

  19. - Windows NT 5.x family windowsupdate.com links for available languages, including all (any?) Custom Support Updates - The updates links are grouped for each build, slightly sorted, and ordered lexicographically per update number or file name as possible - Superseded (replaced) updates are not filtered or excluded - The dump is available as csv files containing updates name and url, or plain text files containing updates url - It's recommended to use CSVFileView to check the csv files https://www.nirsoft.net/utils/csv_file_view.html - You can filter or extract updates for certain language using findstr (Vista or 7) e.g. findstr /i \-enu NT_5.2.3790-x64-Custom.csv > NT_5.2.3790-x64-Custom-enu.csv however, few update have different language identifier or none, so it's best to review the whole file first - NT_5.1.2600-x86-SP2-Custom and NT_5.1.2600-x86-SP2-Custom-IE are ment for the EOS Windows XP SP2 x86 only - NT5-ia64 is for Itanium-based Server 2003 / Windows XP - .NET Framework packs and updates for NT 5.1/5.2 are in a separate list files, likewise Windows Media Player and some eXtra updates # P.S. Maybe it's best not to post the links explicitly in the forum replies or text sites (pastebin, txtuploader..), and share them in the txt/csv files # Download https://gitlab.com/stdout12/adns/uploads/9ca06a12dd08c06edd889e65afa637fa/NT5_WU_URLs_csv.7z https://gitlab.com/stdout12/adns/uploads/33fcfd0b0f6c1a0cb74472cb8407800d/NT5_WU_URLs_txt.7z

  20. Many thanks, indeed! palem's post there is, I think, highly representative/reflective of the major part of Moonchild browsers' userbase, and should also encompass users of Roytam1 forks here... The actual URI of the post (by M.A.T.) quoted is: https://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.php?p=211976&sid=0181647fb5c2204a1c681cd16e21004d#p211976 ... As far as I know, no-one here has already gone/will go nuts over it, all is needed is to keep a vigilant eye on UXP+PM issue trackers/UXP+PM master branches and selectively revert/omit what is deemed unneeded for our tree... Even if that, eventually, will just buy us more time (hopefully lots of it...), it would be highly worth it! E.g., I have already warned readers here of the new plan (envisioned by M.A.T.) to move to an install.json based extension ecosystem (deprecating the install.rdf one), I think these developments should be dealt with on a case-by-case basis/when they present themselves... OT: To Sampei and to all observing Easter tomorrow, may you have a very Happy Easter Sunday (... Unfortunately, divisions between communities of the same Faith mean that over here Easter Sunday won't "arrive" until May 2nd ) ...

  25. Due to the doubts and the incipient erroneous articles published on the Internet saying that Windows XP does not have updated browsers, I open this post indicating the complete information on all the companies or software programmers that make versions of browsers compatible with Windows XP. But first it is necessary to clarify some fundamental concepts. The first fundamental concept is that today there are only 2 Internet Explorer projects for any Windows. The Chromium project and the Mozilla foundation. No, the basic existing browsers are not Google Chrome, Opera, Firefox and Microsoft Edge. Opera abandoned its own "Presto" browser engine in 2012 and Microsoft stopped developing its own browser known as Internet Explorer. Now both the Opera browser and Microsoft's browser are based on the Chromium project, an open source database for developing a web browser, maintained by various companies that later use the source code to create their own version of the browser with additional features. Google develops Chrome and Microsoft develops Edge, as well as various companies using the same codebase. None of these companies create versions compatible with Windows XP but many others do, for many they are unknown companies but in China they generally work with Windows XP due to the delicacy of the manufacturing processes and the independent control provided by this operating system. By not needing direct connections with Microsoft and therefore with the US Government. There are many Chinese browsers based on both Chromium and Mozilla, the Chromium versions come with telemetry for the Chinese Government to know which websites you visit (Google also does it for the USA and stronger) but there are versions that have this capacity removed . There are also browsers from other places but they are less developed such as Otter Browser or RetroZilla. Based on Mozilla we can also find updated browsers even for Windows 2000, although for this system they have not passed the beta phase as forks of K-Meleon and PaleMoon developed by Roytam1. For Windows XP: Chromium-based versions can be found in English and Chinese. Multilanguage only come with Kafan MiniBrowser (except installer), Maxthon and UC Browser. For english Mozilla based versions, many can be patched in another language. I recommend using the English Chromium-based versions because of their speed compared to Mozilla-based ones. We must change the preferred language in which we want to see the web pages to our language. Below I indicate which are the best developments for Windows XP and its base code version in June 2021: 360 Extreme Explorer (Chromium 86) It is the international version of the Chinese 360 Secure Explorer browser. You can download this Russian version without telemetry here: (several users report that the telemetry is not completely canceled, that the deletion is partial) https://rsload.net/soft/browser/17362-360-browser.html or here: https://lrepacks.ru/repaki-programm-dlya-interneta/182-360-extreme-explorer-amp-portable.html New english mod version without telemetry (testing): https://msfn.org/board/topic/182876-360-extreme-explorer-modified-version In this post on the MSFN forum you can ask questions: https://msfn.org/board/topic/178380-extreme-explorer-360-chromium-78-general-discussion To work with Chromium it is essential that we understand the Windows certificate system, since https web pages will depend on their being up to date. While Mozilla-based browsers already have them integrated into the browser itself. To update the Windows XP certificates, download a package updated by the Japanese BlackWingCat on its Windows Legacy Update website: http://win2k.org/wlu/wluen.htm We go to the manual update section and look for certificates. Unzip the file with 7-Zip or WinRar and then install it (the files on this website come in a format that I have not been able to use in XP in Spanish or discussing it with the author, so don't get complicated, unzip with 7-zip and install). Based on Mozilla, the best browsers are these: By Roytam1: -New Moon (Pale Moon fork & Firefox fork) -K-Meleon (K-Meleon fork & Firefox fork) -Serpent / UXP basilisk52 (Basilisk fork & Firefox fork) -Serpent / Mobieus basilisk55 (Basilisk fork & Firefox fork) All are versioned by Roytam1 and lack telemetry for the use of any Government, this is their website to download: http://rtfreesoft.blogspot.com/search/label/browser And in this post on the MSFN forum you can ask questions: https://msfn.org/board/topic/182647-my-browser-builds-part-3/ He also has forks of: -Artic-Fox (MAC fork) -Borealis (Borealis Navigator fork - Netscape Navigator fork) -IceApe (IceWesel fork) And special versions for SSE 1 processors.

  27. Changes in the latest Vista Extended Kernel release: A new function has been added to user32 in x64. This should help with newer Adobe applications. Two new functions have been added to ntdll. This will allow Windows 7 WordPad to run. That function was contributed by Ximonite. Most of the K32* series of functions have been implemented to kernel32 x86. The SetDefaultDllDirectories bug is now fixed for x86 applications. Run x86 VLC and you will see the difference. GetLogicalProcessorInformationEx is also implemented on x86, without issue. Version spoofing is now implemented. Make a file in your Windows directory named osver.ini. If you have Firefox/Thunderbird 91 or above installed, or Waterfox G4 installed, copy the path of the executable to the file and place it in brackets. Write "Enabled=1" below. Then write "FirefoxFix=1" below. Then run Firefox/Thunderbird/Waterfox. Font rendering also differs slightly with this option set on older versions of those browsers.

  28. Work continues on the Vista extended kernel. With the next release, you will be able to spoof version numbers on-demand, for either a specific application or the entire system. The values will be set in osver.ini in the Windows folder. Because I had difficulty accessing high-performance, Vista-compatible hardware for the past few months, I was initially forced to test it on NT4.

  30. Fingers crossed. Honestly, unless they're hell-bent on flushing all memory of XP, I can't think of a good reason for why they wouldn't accept this fix. Let's hope Tobin won't have a heart attack if his so-called "MSFN hackers" manage to get official recognition. (Less name-calling, cussing, and paranoid lashing out at people who have been helping their project, and maybe they wouldn't need appeals like UXP development: it doesn't magically happen...) EDIT: If Tobin or someone else from PM reads this: sarcasm aside, I'm actually not saying this to fan the flames of conflict, the point is that it's painful to watch the upstream I believe most of us would ideally like to support and root for make that as hard as possible, and not just for MSFN members, but also a number of those in their own community.

  32. ... Freedom of expression? My... behind! (pardon my French ... Pun intended, as OPer is from France ). Loading the linked URI in latest Serpent 52.9.0 32-bit, I'm seeing the following: ShadowRoot is part of Google Chrome's WebComponents framework... Shaka Player is a Google-owned web player framework, in the posted screengrab it's looking for EME (Encrypted Media Extensions), i.e. DRM support (aka WidevineCDM, another Google "asset" ) in the browser... Finally, apart from the CORS issue spotted by @roytam1 , the site produces two more errors: To sum up, this is yet another site coded in a way to cater exclusively to latest Chrome and variants ; I wouldn't call this "freedom", would you? (at least where user freedom to choose a browser is concerned... ); in the same vein, citing that 360EE and (Chr)Edge can handle the site/web player fine is a redundant thing to say; the web of 2021 revolves solely around Chrome, period...

  40. Thus far.. @roytam1 has done our community an enormous service with his proficient browser builds. So, between Firefox 52.9.1 ESR; Serpent, and New Moon, I'm able to do everything I need to. When I do have to use Chrome, regrettably, Vivaldi/Opera/Iron are all only based on 49, so I only use it when I truly need to because of 5 years of gaping security holes. Otherwise.. I'm basically on a 'Rickroll'

  41. For me using xp is not just the internet. It is lot more too. I got adobe photoshop, gimp2, paintdotnet, illustrator for photo editing. Then pinnacle 12, adobe premiere, avidemux for video editing. For listening radio/scaning radio freqs I got SDRsharp with RTL-SDR dongle. For tv I got happauge wintv soloHD DVB-C/DVB-T/DVB-T2 tuner that I use with DVBviewer to watch/record free tv channels. Then I got lot of films/videos/music/other contect on my hdd and windvd to play ones I got on dvd. For remote management of computers I got putty (latest build). Then I got old visual studio, pythonXP, microsoft XDX, symbian SDK for coding. For web I use mypal browser by Feodor2 and for email mailnews and for chatting escargot msn messenger 7.5 trough httpsproxy. I am sending this post from that xp system. For word editing office xp and openoffice. For pdf view sumatrapdf, then to sync data off phone nokia pc suite Then got plenty of games (half-life 1, 2, ms flight sim 2004, sims3, toca 3, quake 3, doom3, gt legends, dirt for starters) and all of my games controllers works on xp. I cannot see lot more things I would have to do on pc. So no XP is not going anywhere soon on me. And for some claims I found online. 1. XP will get flooded with viruses when connected to internet: well possibly will get attacked if connected to internet directly with public IP like ADSL broadband did back in 2005 here. 80% of computers are not connected to internet rather to lan that redirects requests to gateway on router and to internet. I got NAT and proper network level firewall (no upnp) and did not have that issue. I also use up to date browser with noscript 2. XP cannot support sata hdd or over 137gb hdd: yes xp cannot see more than 137gb if you got pre sp1 xp and no services packs at all. For sata if on achi mode need have sata controller driver I got 2x1tb hard drives on xp at SATA mode (both formatted at setup) and zero issues 3. XP cannot utilise multicore cpu: XP home edition is limited to 2 physical cpu/cores and pro to 4 physical cpu/cores. Multi cpu and core systems were out way before even vista came out. I have seen xp workstation with 4x pentium 3 xeons long ago. I got quad core phenom x4 945 and all cores works well on multicore enabled application. 4. XP is not optimised to fast computers: how do you define fast system? And it is not xp that utilises all system resources to it own use. Apps do and I have used lot of cpu intensive apps without notable slowdown compared win10 for example on same pc if no sure test it and do not believe all FUD they spread online.

  42. I wouldn't consider myself to be a hardcore diehard; I just enjoy it, and for me, it's a challenge to keep it running. When somebody says you 'can't' do something, that makes me want to prove them wrong even more! I intend to hold on to it so long as my aging hardware continues to grow old gracefully :)

  46. I was under the impression that this topic is about using software that requires Win7 or above on Vista with the aid of win32’s extended kernel. It has become clear to me that you are not particularly interested in security software, and therefore see no reason why others wouldn’t be content with a legacy version of Malwarebytes. Personally, I am not very interested in gaming, but I would never presume to declare all discussion of PC games as being OT in someone else’s thread.

  47. Updated v9, v11, v12 and v13: - Updated the New Tab (Added JavaScript). You can change the values of the shortcuts while being in the browser now. It was my first time using JavaScript, hope it works well! - Fixed a bug related to the password saving and autofill options. Some modifications to the "chrome.dll" file related to the ".cn" entries and the Search Engines made the mentioned options to break the Gmail login page. Cheers.

  48. Official Pale Moon requires at minimum Win7, so support requests for it should be better directed/placed in the respective OS forums... Be that as it may, if users of PM wish to install "legacy" Firefox-only targeting extensions, against the wishes of PM's makers, the method to go by is probably the one below: 1. First enable the setting pointed out by @nicolaasjan, i.e. PM won't block any blacklisted add-ons (the same setting can be achieved via about:config, by disabling the blocklist completely, extensions.blocklist.enabled => false or, alternatively, render it ineffective by setting extensions.blocklist.level => 3 2. Install in PM the latest version of JustOff's Moon Tester Tool: https://github.com/JustOff/moon-tester-tool/releases/tag/2.1.3 3. Have the "legacy" Fx-only targeting add-on available in the form of an .XPI file, saved on disk; the latter can be obtained from CAA, other online repositories or, possibly, copied from the profile of another application where that add-on was already installed (limited to extensions that were not unpacked during installation) ... 4. Use the .XPI file(s) to install in PM with the aid of MTT (Moon Tester Tool); the extension(s) will appear inside PM's add-on manager (AOM) with a [TEST] prefix; those extensions won't be auto-updated, but this isn't an issue for unmaintained legacy Fx extensions, completely forsaken by their original authors... However, I don't see the reason myself why you should choose official PM if on Win7+ over either Mypal/New Moon; these two browsers do not impose any restrictions upon legacy Fx add-ons and, to the best of my knowledge, will launch and run without issues on OSes other that XP...
