I can dump my test sfs to google code tonight; however, since I was going to be testing the combo as a seamonkey replacement, I added some dependencies that will benefit email clients... I haven't packaged those up yet. So far I have been able to open https sites as well as play embedded video and flash and go to full screen (even with flash9 thanks to a patch from patriot)... so far the only problem I have had is with large mixed media pages dropping out due to a threading issue with pthreads (may be fixed in Midori's SVN though - will have to see)

here is a quick test sfs for midori (rename the other to pup~435.sfs and replace it with this one)
http://code.google.com/p/puppy-development/downloads/detail?name=pup-435.sfs

it is the whole main sfs with just mozilla replaced with webkit utilities (not just midori and dependencies) It still needs a lot of tweaking I'm sure

/root/.config/midori needs to be set up for default configuration
there may be some apps that specifically call seamonkey or gtkmoz etc...

Subject description: update with webkit
 

Only had to type in terminal first: ldconfig
Then midori started right up, using it to post now
That was the fastest update and bootup I've ever seen. Everything else is snappy. I'll play around some more.

libflashplayer seemed fine. Played fine at fullscreen on a local tv news site.
With midori, some sites are stupid, so you can change the user agent header of midori to mozilla via the preferences: network>identify as>firefox

Do this if any sites say you don't have flashplayer.

Replaced the original pup-435.sfs in my frugal install with the test sfs ,deleted the save file and booted up.Not tested much yet, but most things appear to be working ootb.

Midori is fast.Going to give it a good run tomorrow to see if I can crash it. Smile Posting with it now.

Still a really solid overall effort.

OK, the following problems:
Critical
Unable to edit contacts on Yahoo mail
Passwords/cookies dont seem to be saving
Non-critical
Speed dial not working
No Notification of completed downloads (libnotify?)
Downloads show progress in status bar for first download only. Subsequent downloads do not display progress
Clicking download complete icon does not take me to the file (actually, it loads geany Smile )

All of the above work in Ubuntu 10.04 version, (2.2) so I guess Midori is capable.

Some icons are missing. Here is a tiny .pet that will install and activate them:
tango_midori.pet

If you find problems in Midori that are not broken in the "defaulthtmlviewer" - that would make a big difference, since the bug can be narrowed down to Midori instead of webkitgtk.

To open the defaulthtmlviewer, navigate to /usr/local/bin or just open a local html file.

If I click on defaulthtmlviewer, webkit launcher opens with /usr/share/doc/home.htm. If I then specify another local doc with specific path or a url it works. But, if a html doc is clicked in rox, via mime, it comes up with error message "URL cannot be shown"
Not sure if mine is different, I used the upgrade route. Midori proper is working fine.

I CAN edit my addressbook in Yahoo mail using defaulthtmlviewer (which gives me a workaround), but NOT with Midori, so I guess the fault is with the Midori build. Again, it is fine using the Midori provided by Ubuntu Lucid..........

dummy me tested defaulthtmlviewer by typing
defaulthtmlviewer file:///usr/share/doc/index.htm

whereas when opened from rox it does something like
defaulthtmlviewer /usr/share/doc/index.htm (missing the file://)

I guess we need a wrapper script for defaulthtmlviewer to convert /.... to file:///...

Oh, I see what you mean. Something similar to how defaultbrowser called mozstart, where mozstart did other checks?

Since midori is remarkably fast, for temp experiment, I renamed defaulthtmlviewer to defaulthtmlviewer.webkit, then copied defaultbrowser as defaulthtmlviewer. Now a click on .htm or .html opens in midori, so that's cool for a workaround.
