  1. If you use New Moon 27.9 or K-Meleon 76.2 by RoyTam1, then you can set the YouTube UA override to a number between 44.0 and 62.0 in order to force the Polymer v1 layout. The same also goes for UXP browsers. UA string: general.useragent.override.youtube.com Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:60.0) Gecko 20100101 Firefox/60.0 PaleMoon/27.9.7
  2. Yes, the "Classic" YouTube UI is less CPU and memory intensive, but Google is going to stop supporting the "Classic" UI. FYI, New Moon 27.9 and K-Meleon 76.2 are also capable of supporting the "Polymer" YouTube interface, they just need a manual UA override.
  3. "rzbrowser-tls12-20200127.7z" and "retrozilla-suite-tls12-20200131.7z" still yield the same result. the "retrozilla-suite-tls12-20200131.7z" link should point to http://o.rths.ml/gpc/files1.rt/retrozilla-suite-tls12-20200131.7z
  4. Hint: All the links yield the same 7z file.
  5. System.ini [vcache] MaxFileCache=16384 or MaxFileCache=65536
  6. Nice job implementing ChaCha support! When will the URLs be posted?
  7. How do you think lowering vcache to 16-64 MB will impact performance in Windows 98?
  8. Thanks for the input. Personally, I don't care about my security (I don't do anything on my computers that require security), I'm all about getting the best performance on my computers. I've noticed that it isn't usually a huge drain on performance to have JavaScript enabled on Firefox 2.0 era browsers, but it will still lower system resource use. When it comes to the UXP and Tycho based browsers RoyTam1 maintains, I've noticed enabling JavaScript is a horror show on resource use. What I do is open 2 web browsers of my choice, 1 of them is for websites I use that requires JavaScript to work properly (YouTube and possibly a few others), and another browser with JavaScript disabled to handle the rest of the web sites I want to load.
  9. I only started caring about using older Windows versions when I dug up the older computers in my house for nostalgic reasons (October 15th 2016). When I used Windows 9x in 2017-2019, my web browser of choice was Firefox In that time, I went from seeing the occasional error message to being blocked from almost 1/2 the web. IME, there wasn't much of a problem with TLS 1.0 connections until mid-2018 at the earliest. It makes me sad knowing a lot of web browsers in upwards of a decade time span are becoming effectively useless due to TLS 1.0 deprecation, and knowing the browsers I used in my early years (Firefox 1.5.x and 2.x) are among those being locked out of the web. Fortunately RoyTam1's web browsers are still an option...
  10. Do you think it's possible that doing "security related tasks" with an old OS and browser will get more "secure" over time simply sue to the software (old OS and browser) becoming harder to program for?
  11. This has been a fun ride for me, and the SSL issue on Windows 95 seems to be officially solved.
  12. By default, the SSL protocol disabled problem on Windows 95 still persists, however, I noticed that coping NSS related files from Retrozilla, or K-Meleon fixes the SSL protocol disabled problem. If anyone wants a list of the files I copied, I will post back.
  13. Wunderbar98, I'm still confused by which OS you used to load Firefox. Did you install Windows 2000 in QEMU? Do you think upgrading the RAM from 384 MB will be possible? As for a more modern day standards compliant browser for Windows 98, my money is on RoyTam1's K-Meleon 74 and Pale Moon 26.5 VC 2005 (VC8) browser builds.
  14. Doing a quick test running Phoenix 0.5 on Windows 95 indicates the New Tab, and Close Tab bugs have been fixed. The about:config bug is still there (minor issue), but when I try to connect to an HTTPS website, I get a message stating the browser security component could not be initialized, the SSL protocol has been disabled. IME, this SSL error does not affect Windows 98 (tested with 98 SE) or later versions.
  15. As for CPU clock speed limitations, Windows 95 will fail to boot on more than 2.1GHz, however LoneCrusader has a program named Fix95CPU that is meant for making Windows 95 compatible with processors faster than 2.1 GHz. http://lonecrusader.x10host.com/fix95cpu.html I don't know if there is a similar project for Windows 98 because it feels buggy on processors that fast, but 98 SE In my Experience can run flawlessly on processors with a higher clock speed than 2.1 GHz.
