  1. I thought I would add links to 2 additional browsers , which are not up to date, although they do work on XP and for the sake of completeness, maybe somebody would be interested in seeing if they could update / improve on them as per whatever needs to be done and considering the Tobin situation, all potential alternatives may be in order to mention. Here is the link to a 32 bit version of IceCat that was posted several years ago in this forum: IceCat xp build of 52.3.0 https://mega.nz/#F!8spCWTSa!98kVn_QKDAvLMi69I-xkFA Here is the link to a build of IceWeasel that requires the not so functional Iceweasel-53.0.en-US.xpi addon to render some of the Chinese into English: https://sourceforge.net/projects/libportable/files/Iceweasel/Stable/53.x/
  2. Roytam - Could you please upload the IceApe for Aug 8th, because the file you most recently linked to ---------------- New build of IceApe-UXP for XP! Test binary: https://o.rths.ml/gpc/files1.rt/iceape.win32-20200801-id-eed056673-ia-41157bf-uxp-091749192-xpmod.7z -------------------- is exactly the same in name and contents as the build from Aug, 1. Thank you for your great work.
  3. @Roytam I have noticed that the ability of the browser certificate manager to import *server certificates* in Palemoon 27 is missing from Palemoon 28 . Can the ability to import *server Certificates* be re-enabled in Palemoon 28 ? For general reference other browsers which are still enabled include : Arctic Fox Firefox Browsers that currently also lack the ability to import *server certificates* include : Basilisk/Serpent Borealis Iceape I'm tending to think that choice and flexibility to import server certificates is better than not being able to., even if not 'critical' at this point, it may be required at some point.. What do you (and any others) think? Thank You for your time.
  4. Thank you kindly for the alternative and updated file link.
  5. Roytam1 - 1) The latest Iceape file has a new date (iceape.win32-20200523 ) on the installer , although in the the Help / about of the browser it still displays a date of May,16. 2) The New build of BOC/UXP for XP uploaded (bnavigator.win32-20200516-8150adea-uxp-9cf4eca9a-xpmod.7z ) is the same file from May,16. Please check. Thanks (!)
  6. @Roytam1 I want to thank Roytam 1 for helping to 'save the world' with his XP updated browser builds. I've been using all of them as I find that some sites and features may work better with different browsers based on my particular interests on a per site / function basis., although I tend to use Firefox and Borealis the most. I prefer function over speed, others may prefer speed over function, although ideally nice to have both (!) I religiously add these threads to the Internet Archives. Roytam 1 - I noticed that you acquired the source code for IceWeasel https://sourceforge.net/p/libportable/tickets/7/ to build the Netscape Navigator-like IceApe. I was wondering (if you are inclined at your convenience) to make the updated IceWeasel which is more Firefox based. https://sourceforge.net/projects/libportable/files/Iceweasel/Stable/53.x/i686/ Iceweasel does definitely work on XP with the English language pack, Iceweasel-53.0.en-US.xpi despite whatever Horlon states in the last post in the thread here : http://kmeleonbrowser.org/forum/read.php?12,141645 although the EN language pack has some limitations in some areas. Iceweasel - other potentially related links https://wiki.hyperbola.info/doku.php?id=en:project:iceweasel-uxp https://www.hyperbola.info/packages/extra/i686/iceweasel-uxp/ https://git.hyperbola.info:50100/packages/extra.git/tree/iceweasel-uxp https://git.hyperbola.info:50100/software/iceweasel-uxp.git/ https://git.hyperbola.info:50100/software/iceweasel-uxp.git/tree/installer/windows https://git.hyperbola.info:50100/software/iceweasel-uxp.git/tree/installer/windows/nsis https://git.hyperbola.info:50100/software/iceweasel-uxp.git/tree/installer/windows/Makefile.in I'm glad that adonais / libportable (and then Roytam ?) could made working browsers for windows XP from these files. I was wondering (if you are inclined at your convenience) to make the updated IceWeasel which is more Firefox based. https://sourceforge.net/projects/libportable/files/Iceweasel/Stable/53.x/i686/ Thank You Roytam and all of the members for their contributions.
