Subject description: Web Browser
 

I'm new to Puppy Linux, and I would like to know how to install the most recent versions of Chrome or Firefox on Puppy Linux, I checked on quickpet but it has outdated versions.

I don't know about Chrome, but Firefox has an update feature you can call from within Firefox. If you have Firefox 4 or higher, I believe it defaults to automatic updates. (There have been reports from Puppy users about problems getting Firefox 8 to work after it auto-updated from FF7, though, with some solutions, on the forum.) If it's not enabled, the check-for-updates button can be found within the About window.

If you have Firefox 3/3.6, I think you have to manually select the check-for-updates feature under the Help menu.

So, you can install an older version of Firefox and tell it to update to the newest versions, if you prefer.

Welcome to Puppy Linux [Edit]yadielfeliciano[/Edit]!

What version ov Puppy are you using: Slacko (there is only one version ov this: 5.3), Lucid (5.2.5, 5.2.8, etc), or something else?
It would be very useful to know that.

If you are running puppy and you're not sure what version you are running, you can click on the free space icon and a window will appear at the top of the screen. (The free space icon is at the bottom left in most puppies. It has green, orange, or red bar(s) depending on how much space is left in your save file.)

Since quickpet doesn't have the latest version, you should try the Puppy Package Manager.
It can be launched this way:
(In Lucid) Menu>Setup>Setup Puppy>Puppy Package Manager
(In Slacko) Menu>Setup>Puppy Package Manager

Is the version of Firefox or Chromium you want in there?

Oh yes, I actually was replying to the original post.

When I was writing the post, I scrolled down to see the poster's user name and the the list shows the oldest post first. I suppose that I wasn't paying enough attention.

Sorry for any confusion that this may have caused anyone Rolling Eyes

Beware Firefox 8 under Puppy. It may just be my settings, but it has a tendency to lock up on my machines.
