There's an old ipk of Minimo floating around - it's not very good but as version 2 has now been released, I wondered if it was possible to compile it for pdaxrom?

There can never be too many browsers for pdaxrom biggrin.gif

minimo 0.2 was written for windows ce/mobile only. the developers thought that the windows look and feel was superior decided to make minimo windows specific. this means it will not compile on linux system since there are no equivalent windows apis on linux.
maybe once they got their windows only version of minimo2 stabilised and got some time on their hand, they will work on getting linux supported as well, but that's probably very unlikely. they probably will just continue on with minimo 0.3... minimo doesn't have such a good track record which is a big contrast to firefox...

you will be better off with firefox2 or osb-browser...

I get the distinct impression that anything Mozilla Foundation touches turns into a resource hog. dry.gif Hopefully the OSB Browser can stabilize quickly and get bit more feature complete.

I did suspect as much as I couldn't find linux sources but I wondered if someone had worked some magic on the old version.....

All I really find usable --for browsing-- is Dillo, but there's no javascript or css . I am hopeful that Osb-browser will make it some day, but right now it just bombs out too much to be usable. Firefox is just sluggish and memory hungry. But we all already know all this eh smile.gif

I will stay hopeful.

What about Links2 in GUI mode? It renders similar to Dillo, but with frame, table, and JavaScrip support.

I have tried to get used to links, and I use elinks quite a lot from the terminal, but it just doesn't feel the same for general browsing.

Do you know if there's a way to change the font/size in links-g ?
