When I used your Opera 9.5 link I just ran "install.sh" from term. Any reason you don't do that? Worked fine for me.

ttuuxxx has a 9.64 compile available as a .pet, that works ok. I understand if people want more than the pet offers. Wink

ttuuxxx.

Maybe a bug with your Opera9.64 pet, passwords for forums etc seem not to be saving for me. Any idea?

Cheers

Naa its the full static package from Opera itself, nothing removed. Opera doesn't give you as much control over it as does Firefox, but if you really wanted to fix it, I"M !00% sure you'll find your answer in the /root/.Opera hidden folder. It would be one of those config scripts.

It works fine, but if you *don't* use the shellscript,you have a portable (sandboxed) Opera confined to one directory. That means easy updates / upgrades / backup:

When you're upgrading ,just delete everything but the 'profile' directory and extract the fresh build to the Opera folder Smile

Backup: You can copy the whole Opera directory to a USB flash drive and use it from there (a basic script will do the trick) Smile

I did the same about a year ago when FF3 was emerging, in Mandriva... (my pre-puppy days... dark ages Laughing )

Embarassed ttuuxxx, no problems... I just didn't know how to use the wand... the idea is a bit silly IMO

Would you also test ecofox in your report

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=40497

It was developed on P700/192mb's, it wont fare well in terms of speed against the other browsers (even though its been speed optimized in its config)m but users will save time not having to configure themselves Wink

I've been impressed with the recent versions of Seamonkey, especially since they've incorporated spell checking into the browser. I still use Sylpheed or Claws for E-mail though.

No numbers, because I've been flat out doing other stuff as well as testing. Even real life stuff! Laughing

Opera10 alpha is very fast in quite a few puplets, including NYP, spup, slaxer-pup and standard 4.21.

However in NYP a new browser enters the equation. FF3.07 which Mark has humming very fast.

I may in the next week or so take a look at ecofox... is that based on FF2.x?

Yep, 2.0.0.20 (the latest update of the 2 series as well as the last one planned) if I remember rightly.

No tests of "Epiphany"? I run it in other distros,..(with Java and Flash working well)...seems pretty fast and simple. Any pet packages or dot.pups of it?

Yes currently, although the .pet will update automatically to the latest 3 series, which one tester I had said produces faster results and he preferred...I havnt had chance yet to fully test if that breaks anything though....Its had a lot of features and tweaks added.

thank you 01Micko for providing this comparison, I look forward to reading your report.

I don't really trust 3, it seems to crash a lot. I'd be happier sticking with 2.0.0.20 as long as possible or even (since I'm posting from it now) Seamonkey 1.1.15.
