  1. @Jaguarek62: Here is my latest build. Just so you know, it differs from the copy @FranceBB patched by including additional code that tries unsuccessfully to disable DirectWrite. chromiumxp_test_11062019.7z chromiumxp_test_11062019.7z.sig
  2. @Jaguarek62: My latest build works on Windows 7 but @FranceBB says he patched the copy you have so that might be why it doesn't work on Windows 8.1.
  3. Hi everyone. I'm the author of Chromium XP (version 76.0.3771.0). I couldn't register here when I started but FranceBB suggested I try again tonight so now I'm available on here. You can also find posts by me on the Tao Kaizen forum. My post history on there -> https://browser.taokaizen.com/forum/search.php?author_id=848&sr=posts
  4. For the past few months I've been backporting Chromium 76 for Windows XP. I made GUI improvements as well. Here are some screenshots. https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/499221835225890829/570061156253958174/unknown.png https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/518172695439867904/570299310428651540/unknown.png https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/518172695439867904/570300563753795614/unknown.png https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/518172695439867904/570421865416491008/unknown.png https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/518172695439867904/570298720785268766/unknown.png I started with Chromium 76 and fixed a long list of errors on Windows XP before reaching the point where I have to replace DirectWrite with GDI. I tried several times without success. A few people have expressed interest in the code for my Chromium project but I declined to share it. I'm willing to share it now with someone who can help because I think it's more important to keep the project going. Here is a notice I posted on Skype and Discord: I'm willing to cross-license my work with anyone who can enable GDI font rendering. That means I'll give credit to whoever helps me, and they will be required to give credit to me if they release their own browser using my XP patches. Both of us can make our work open- or closed-source as long as we give credit to the other party. Here is the list of errors I resolved.
