My Browser Builds (Part 2)

Hi

I come back to the problem of radio.garden and you will see that not using webgl-angle of google does not satisfy everyone.

Hmm :D

Surprisingly, usually the opposite is true OpenGL the problem, not Angle

The decision for http://radio.garden/

GMA4500+, FX5100+ (soft), Radeon 9500+

webgl.force-enabled - true

webgl.disable-angle - true

Hi

The Grey_rat solution worked.
The problem was OpenGL, I have an Ati radeon HD 4650 AGP graphics card on the pc. The problem is solved on new moon 28.9, Basilisk 52.9 and iceap-upx
"Radio.garden" now works perfectly.
Grey_rat:worship:

I followed the advice of Grey_rat above and it worked perfectly until the day when a tooltip generated by the radio-garden website forbids me definitively to use webgl of my ATI radéon card.

And this, on all Roytam1 browsers except basilisk 55 which works with webgl angle. The consequence is a return to the beginning of my problem.:wacko:

 

The reactivity of radio.garden to modify the use of its website is surprising...
Thanks Google

 

I think you will all understand GOOGLE  webgl.angle is essential, and probably also has spyware for all browsers.:no:

 

update:radio.garden works again under "webgl angle of google" on new moon 28.9, basilisk 52 and iceape-uxp and seamonkey 2.49.5. The responsiveness is incredible. But the webgl ati radeon has been blocked

Regarding the problem with Radio Garden, with ANGLE disabled, it bombs out in this part of the browser code:

#ifdef XP_WIN
        if (gl->GetContextType() == gl::GLContextType::WGL &&
            !gl::sWGLLib.HasDXInterop2())
        {
            DestroyResourcesAndContext();
            MOZ_ASSERT(!gl);

            const nsLiteralCString text("Caveat: WGL without DXGLInterop2.");
            ThrowEvent_WebGLContextCreationError(text);
            return NS_ERROR_FAILURE;
        }
#endif

https://github.com/roytam1/UXP/blob/1ae4416c293f3bdde3d377643692e3d407747142/dom/canvas/WebGLContext.cpp#L966

It's checking for presence of NV_DX_interop2 extension, which isn't supported by any Windows XP compatible graphics driver since the extension is used for sharing Direct3D 10/11 resources with WebGL context.

Omitting the check for this particular extension from the code should make it work (maybe the correct way to go is doing HasDXInterop if we're accelerating the browser with D3D9 and HasDXInterop2 for D3D11).

Basilisk 55 doesn't seem to have that check anywhere, but it's present in current Firefox builds.

Hey guys just a question.  As it stands now in April 2020, is there a still a major compatibilitiy reason to run Serpent 55 as opposed to 52?  I run Windows 8 with the original Basilisk as my backup browser, because I need to use a web application that requires WebRTC?  If I were to use Serpent 55 instead, would there be better compatibility provided?  Is performance better?

Any downsides to Serpent 55 as it stands?

Pretty much the only one who can answer that question is you, since you need to use a specific web application that requires WebRTC. Run it and see how it behaves under Serpent 55.

IXOYE, add this filter to the ublock
radio.garden##.Modal_isAlert__1mI6e.Modal_modal__P3_V5

Angle can be turned back on, is already working with Angle. webgl.disable-angle false.  But then stop working WebGL2

However, there must be a collective experience thus far as o how Serpent 55 and 52 compare.  And yes, I understand that the whole two threads can be read through, but I'm sure someone can offer up a synopsis.  I appreciate it.

I disabled webgl2 on newmoon 28.9 with the filter on ublock. It now works without tooltips with webgl ati radeon, but I have slowdowns in music throughput with sudden cuts in radio sound that I can't explain. The CPU load is however the same as on Angle. With GOOGLE webgl angle, I don't have this random slowdown problem. Strange No?

thanks Grey_rat:rolleyes:

Well I tried it myself.  It tends to record and playback somewhat choppy with/without Direct2D and Hardware Acceleration enabled, so now I know.  Basilisk 52 (as in the original product) it is.

@roytam1

Firstly, I've been following your work since the days of hk.geocities.com/roytam1. Great to see you're still around and thanks for all your efforts!

Secondly, I was wondering whether you'd be able to make a build of Pale Moon 3.6.32 with support for modern encryption. This particular browser runs on Windows XP and non-SSE2 processors, has some HTML5 features and security fixes from newer versions of Firefox backported in, and is much faster and lighter than all the alternatives I've tried. I use it for sites where the non-availability of contemporary browser features is not a problem, and results have been great so far. However, I expect lack of updated TLS support to become a problem in the near future, now that old protocols and ciphers are being "retired" from the Web.

I was pleased to find that copying all NSS-related DLLs from your rzbrowser-tls12-20200127 results in TLS 1.2 support! But it does not enable modern algorithms (GCM, ChaCha20, Poly1305, SHA384), and adding the corresponding values to about:config has no effect. Furthermore, every single cipher suite that is supported by this browser is considered either weak or insecure by current standards.

The base source code can be found at https://archive.org/download/Pale_Moon_Archive_2015_08/Pale_Moon_Archive_2015_08.zip/Pale_Moon_Archive%2FSource code%2Fpalemoon-3.6.32-source.7z. Even a one-off release would be enough to make this usable for many years to come :)

Thanks in advance for any answer!

you may just use my 3.6 NT4 fork instead.
