A good & working net browser?

Postby mzry » Tue Apr 11, 2017 10:22 am

Hi all,

Highwire is working perfectly on my system (Latest Vanillamint 1.19) but I cannot get Netsurf to run reliably, it keeps crashing with get_wind AES call errors. I've tried both MyAES and XaAes without any luck. Highwire is too old and incompatible with modern website standards, does anyone have a good build of Netsurf maybe especially compiled for 060 I could have? I've even tried the nightly builds, they don't even open.

Thx

If I remember correctly, netsurt needs 16-bit color mode so do you have Radeon, Super Videl or so?

Highwire is working great but is outdated and really not much you can do with.
Netsurf is a good and working browser for those who have a SV or other video adapter.
Otherwise you can run it on text only mode, disabling images (and transparency) on choices file, and it will stop crashing on 256/16 color mode. Read readme file for more.

There were some 256 color experimental builds. The rendering was reported slow.

It would be nice if someone who has a build environment share a 256 color build. I can provide the settings variables (thanks Ole:)

Recent version looks not work anymore, nobody to support Netsurf evolution for AES interface

You can try this version : http://gem.lutece.net/download/netsurf.zip
