K-Meleon Reviews

Super fast on slow hardware

about K-Meleon · · Helpful Not helpful 1 Helpful Report as spam

As Firefox/Opera may soon no longer be updated on XP computer without NX-bit (Windows 10 cannot be installed), I tried some browsers. K-meleon was by far the fastest I tried. Faster than Opera, Firefox, Slimjet.

Midori I could not even start as DLL error message appeared, but I managed to install/uninstall.

Really lightweight with some advanced, not complete but easy to use privacy features. Simple design and customizable toolbars. No download manager or addon support.


Lightest browser that still works with modern web, WIN 2000 looking User interface, for very dated hardware.

plays youtube, look's ancient, runs fast, works well for 2000-2005 era hardware,

lacks very modern features, user interface feels clunky

It is very light, it is true ^ ^ "
it consumes 4 mb of RAM and 15 MB of V-RAM at startup, which is a BIG plus.

Which repel some, it's the look, a little customizable, but "Windows 2000/ME" style, so it is very simple.

I also noticed that alot of links are dead, the official website ... this is weird.

Well I'll use it when I have stuff to do fast, because I use QuiteRSS to navigate (this is a RSS Feed manager) for some time, but sometimes I need a real browsers especially to activate objects .js ...

In short, it's still a nice browser, I see these functions more closely later.

the Final Release of it (barring any quick fixes) has been packaged onto its server. You can get it by going to [url] http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/files/K-Meleon74.exe [/url]. The changes are that the issues of it loading the wrong page when going back via the menu and K-Meleon giving the wrong locale to a website have been fixed.

This is an excellent, very lightweight and fast browser, recommended.

Beautiful! Lightest among modern original browsers.
