Just a little friendly hint, and the above only as short example: You intend to help, which is great, but you're probably the only one who considers 'stumbling-quotes' around each and every name and other normal words as helpful for reading. Additionally to all the other stumbling-*starlets* and uppercase emphasizes etc. too. If used moderately that's true, but stumbling over every second word feels for readers like wandering through a stony creek bed ;-) This would be much smoother already, even with still 1/3 marked words: > However, now, with Mathwiz tweak, the ADOBE PRIMETIME CDM Plugin install DOES solve the problem.
  2. Happy new year to you too, and thanks for all the work :) Regarding those suspicious access blocks by Cloudflare or whatever, have just tested this link https://o.rths.ml/gpc/files1.rt/phoenix-0.5-cl933-tls12.7z with httpS and old gecko K-Meleon1.5.4 (like FF2, max TLS1.0), and faked UA to IE7, and it still opens fine.
  3. Brandnew FUN-resurrection: 100year old PHOENIX browser, now with TLS1.2! (fixing websites denied due to "cipher" errors) https://msfn.org/board/topic/180462-my-browser-builds-part-2/?do=findComment&comment=1176643 (page 50)
  4. Roytam's recent resurrection: K-Meleon 1.5.4 with TLS 1.2! (era Firefox2, for vanilla 98) First build 2019-12-25 (page 37): https://msfn.org/board/topic/180462-my-browser-builds-part-2/?do=findComment&comment=1175258 most of GRE components are replaced with Retrozilla-based build (but not all) Update 2020-01-08 (page 43): https://msfn.org/board/topic/180462-my-browser-builds-part-2/?do=findComment&comment=1175918 archive updated with sha256 and sha384 support. Download: http://o.rths.ml/gpc/files1.rt/K-Meleon1.5.4en-US.tls12.7z KM-Forum for this build: http://kmeleonbrowser.org/forum/read.php?22,151512 ------------ Note for K-Meleon 1.6: Anyone using this for real on Win98 (needs KernelEx), and would like to get back read access for wikipedia, twitter etc. too? You can PARTLY upgrade it by "Do-It-Yourself" ;-) Have played around with this, using blind trial&error method by just copying over some files from KMzilla154 (as I call it). At first it seemed too good to be true, all those crucial domains are finally accessible again, for KM1.6 too. But it's rather shaky, only a crutch. Meanwhile have come across some domains which are still blocked in this messy KM1.6, although they do open fine with roytam's expert build KMz154. After a bit more testing, am now suspecting this tweaked KM1.6 can only open the same domains as Opera12.02? For now that's still a huge step forward, for KM to catch up at least with Opera, but if anyone can figure out more that would be great.

  6. By far the worst prob for old Win98 browsers in today's web is outdated https-encryption (SSL/TLS). Websites insisting to connect with modern TLS1.2 are completely BLOCKED, showing only error pages, usually this infamous one: Error code: ssl_error_no_cypher_overlap That desaster started only 1-2 years ago with Google's command to encrypt the whole public web with modern standards too, and things went downhill fast. Meanwhile half the internet is broken for old Firefox/Mozilla browsers! Amazingly, old Opera12.02 (needs KernelEx) is still holding up much better, it was amazingly advanced for its time, but now losing the uphill battle too. Lucky the people who can run the last Presto version (Opera 12.15?) Luckily, especially for Mozilla fans, rescue came from projects like Retrozilla, with TLS1.2, for pure vanilla Windows98. https://msfn.org/board/topic/174987-x/ And since a few years also from roytam1. Focussing mainly on Mozilla browsers for XP, but occasionally also a special build for older systems. Such a pity that he doesn't create own topics here for his fascinating Win98-browser updates. But hidden away in the middle of giant melting pot topics in the XP-forum that stuff just gets lost. Only just-for-fun hobby users of retro stuff (like himself) may stumble across it over there. So what do, to give notice of those gems to more regular users of old systems too? Which are HERE? Perhaps we can at least collect some links here, for real 9X users, to find that stuff easier. And there's probably more interesting stuff floating around out there somewhere, from other people, that could be added too. For longer discussions of single projects it would be better if anyone can create new separate topics around here, to keep that stuff together, then in THIS topic just post the link and a bit description.

The build itself is great, with TLS1.2 to get rid of most "no cipher_overlap" errors, just a little warning: 7z builds of KM used to be portable out-of-box, yet this one is NOT. The switch-file "profile.ini" (can be empty) is missing in the root folder. That means if you already have an older KM-profile in your systems, from whichever (younger?) KM-version, this build will snatch it and possibly modify it. Strongly recommend to make a backup copy of your previous KM-profiles before starting this. Or better, modify it to always start with the ProfileManager.
  8. Deja vu.... again.... again... Mods, please, split....
  9. Thanks! But the best are the comments, highlighting some consequences, obviously based on plenty experience with Googles hostility already, and in general with getting locked out from websites. This will be a HUGE prob for all alternative browsers or users on old systems, which today already get Google's threats e.g. on youtube "SOON WE WILL NOT SUPPORT THIS BROWSER ANYMORE" (or similar). In the future much harder to escape them and receive the page uncrippled. Probably deserves an own topic? PS: completely shocked again about this translator-block :-( So even if someone in fenced countries has access to free websites outside, it won't help much if they can't translate it. Or only translate with other services, which may take part in the blocking. (I've been thinking about uploading the translation somewhere, but then again, probably not much interest as this is just one report, and that subject will be covered and discussed on some english sites/forums too, with similar comments)
  10. A peach? Hmm, not so bad at all... Much more my taste as snakes 8-) A peach... and.... cherries... Shall we do fruits? His changelogs are full with "cherry-picking", very fitting :D
  11. roytam1 said: > can't read russian Uhm, neither can I. Not a word. But no prob, G-translation for EN/RU is almost perfect, so now confused: you kidding....? Or access blocked? Or free decision or....?
  12. Aaargh... https://www.opennet.ru/opennews/art.shtml?num=52182 next bomb in the war of the big monopolies to get rid of all alternative browsers, which are not their own latest-greatest versions, chock full with telemetry :-(( Especially a 100% success rate guarantied to kill all older browsers, which will not be able to respond to their new request method, much the same effect as all the broken-ciphers already :-((
  13. @VL Sorry but I keep thinking it's your own decision to waste that time, after first experiences. I know it's not quite easy to suppress an urge to reply anyway. I do highly appreciate all the help you give, it really is extremely useful, also for later readers. What I just personally find rather sad in todays world is that real trolls, who only post to disrupt and attack and offend, and enjoy it, never get any trouble, quite the opposite, instead it's usually kind people who never do any harm who get hunted for no crimes at all.
  14. Cannot tell about Win95 or vanilla98, but in my semi-tweaked 98se MediaPlayerClassic works okay. It's my favorite player for videos, incl. youtube. It does have one bug, I must not move the slider or it freezes. To jump forward, must remember to hit the space bar first or otherwise click PAUSE, then click (not pull) to another point on the slider, then click to start playing again.
