  2. Now I had tried Invidious on my weakest computer (Pentium 4c (SSE2),VIA PT880Ultra, 2GB, NV GF5900XT). It works, with K-Meleon76, RT's Firefox 45.9.33 (with added lav filters), MyPal and Centaury, but not with Firefox 52 or 35 (no compatible source was found for this media). Invidious doesn't seem to support VP9. Retrospect: I must disable hardware acceleration to run youtube videos when using GF5900XT. I had tried Workarounds for Firefox 52 from msfn/board/XP to support AVC1 some weeks ago. These attempts failed with crashes on browser start here on ME. Furthermore I noticed Invidious is optimised for 16:9. I have an overlap due to the player with 4:3 fullscreen.

  5. Thanks, I'm aware of Invidious, but the test on my older machine is still pending. On this here it works really fast. I don't see sound problems on my RM's. Creative SB PCI128 (Ensoniq ES1371/1373) Sound Cards
  6. I wasn't so diligent. I don't know how to increase the stack commit size. I installed the PE Explorer (trial 30 days). It gives a Data Value for the stack commit 00001000h (chrome.exe version 6.0.453.1). I also don't know what higher value makes sense. So it will be trial and error. I fiddled a bit with different KernelEx modes and different versions 3,4,5,6,7. I got them from https://web.archive.org/web/20190412050719/http://www.oldapps.com/Google_Chrome.php. 2K SP4 seems to make it a bit more functional, but I wasn't able to open a website. On Xp I had set two http sides for the start on ME without success. Versions 3 and had 4 has let the LDT resources go into the red area. KexApiLog - first try: After the error message, the logging continued to run somewhat crumbled. I have to take a closer look.
  7. no special steps - I only copied chrome.exe into the 6.0.453.1 folder and started the exe from that folder. But that's not yet running. not even the otions/tool button works. If I try to insert something into the url bar, it crashes immediately. This is only the ui.
  8. Yes, I also can start your chrome 5 and even my version 6,too. Here I get another error message "chrome has caused an error in Crypt32.dll" after 10 seconds . But the Dependency Walker doesn't show red boxes (no modul warning / no unresolved functions) for Crypt32.dll (original ME file 5.131.2133.3). These old versions are interesting for troubleshooting, but not for browsing, because those don't support TLS 1.2.

  9. does not work at the moment http://www.oldversion.com/windows/download/google-chrome-5-0-307-1 504 Gateway Time-out I've 6.0.453.1 here. Error in secur32.dll: QuerySecurityContextToken seems suspicious to me. It's not supported by KernelEx. I've it in the stubs.ini. InitializeSecurityContextW, EnumerateSecurityPackagesW, AcquireCredentialsHandleW, QueryCredentialsAttributesW are supported by Kexbasen. Nothing happened on 6.0 start here.

  10. Thanks. And do you have stability or other browser problems on 98SE in your VM? Are Firefox 52 or MyPal e.g. sluggish?
  11. Thanks for the confirmation. What system specs do you have? Hardware, graphics driver, VM(what kind, which) or RM, directX,... . The more testers participate here with different systems , so that better insights and knowledge we obtained. What steps did you take (e.g. BCW ChromeTool?)? Which exact version is that? Where can I catch it?
  12. Hallo oerg866, it depends on hardware, software (directx, grahics driver), RM, VM, ... what works and what doesn't. Firefox 52.9, MyPal 29.3, Centaury 0.17, NewMoon 28.9, RT's 45.9.33 run here in my opinion quite usable or even good on my ME machines. There are several issues on 98/ME of which most are solvable here. Not solved for example, the ten years old issues "bookmarks and recently visited addresses aren't saved". https://sourceforge.net/p/kernelex/feature-requests/7/ K-Meleon 76.x.x: The submenus are largely unreadable. The usefulness of this browser is therefore questionable. Meanwhile, the use of YouTube on my oldest computer Pentium 4c (SSE2),VIA PT880Ultra, 2GB, NV GF5900XT is no longer possible. The CPU is probably too weak for such a bloated Site. In general, these browsers are quite sluggish on this machine. I keep the fist post up to date. Everything important is summarised with links to the associated posts. I don't see a possibility for a simple two-line summary. This is too complex. I recommend to proceed step by step, run the improved Firefox 31.8 for 98/ME, then try to get 45.9 running and finally 52.9 to keep error possibilities lower.
  13. Correction: Apparently I had only tested NewMoon version 28.1 with skia. 28.8 and 28.9 work with "gfx.content.azure.backends" skia.
  14. I've older versions of NewMoon (28.0 -28.9.0) running. The problem in XUL.dll can be circumvented by a substitution with an adequate file version of MyPal. Here: NewMoon 28.9.0a1.win32-git-20191214 (Xul.dll with Xul.dll of MyPal 28.8.4. Too bad that NewMoon doesn't accept skia for gfx.content.azure.backends. Some icon glitches remain due to cairo. Newer versions seem to lose compatibility. I also have basilisk52-g4.4.win32-git-20191214 running, but the used Xul.dll of Centaury doesn't have such a good compatibility. Some functions are not available.
