  1. Modern Browser Project 2018

    I think there is some misunderstandings. Using Qt framework is easy! QTWeb Browser depends on QTWeb Engine from Qt framework! Even if you succeed to rebuild latest QtWeb Browser using older Qt framework (which I doubt), the functionality of the browser will be downgraded because it will use older engine! Version of Qt framework used for QTWeb Browser is not compatible with 9x systems! So, to make latest QtWeb Browser compatible with 9x systems we need to recompile the Qt framework(proper version) itself in such way to be compatible with 9x systems!
  2. https://developer.apple.com/opensource/ WebKit Support Library and WebKit Auxiliary Library Their name is self-explanatory... Old version is not available and license looks retarded - https://developer.apple.com/opensource/internet/webkit_sptlib_agree.html - @~♥Aiko♥Chan♥~ No, I don't need to use Qt Creator. This is only thing i used -> qt-win-opensource-4.4.0-mingw.exe - https://download.qt.io/archive/qt/4.4/ And old MinGW v3.2.0
  3. Maybe i will try it when i find some time, but i can't promise anything...
  4. This is not Cygwin! Like it's name says, it's just downloader for Cygwin packages. Complete Cygwin with all packages is big, it's size is in GigaBytes, lots of GigaBytes! When Cygwin installer/downloader is started it show list of mirrors where packages can be downloaded from, but problem is because they don't keep older packages. I have almost complete Cygwin archive from 2002-2007 it's size is ~30GB. You said that source is from 2012, so they probably used cygwin packages from 2011-2012. I have everything except cygwin(2011-2012) and this Apple libraries and QuickTime SDK.
  5. @winxpi Maybe there can be some issues. 1. Cygwin. The problem with cygwin is that they made changes too fast and they don't keep older versions. 2. http://blog.ashodnakashian.com/2011/09/building-webkit-on-windows/ -> I don't know which version? Are they still available for download? And how they are licensed?
  6. Both Arora and Qupzilla are based on QtWebEngine which now uses code from Chromium. https://wiki.qt.io/QtWebEngine And it seams that they are just small modifications on Qt demo browser. I compiled Arora and Qt demo browser, if someone need this they are here: Arora Browser http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_id=79658569515155393611 Qt_demo - Browser http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_id=35884629957549681339 They work natively on w98/Me.
  7. @~♥Aiko♥Chan♥~ You need Qt if you want to compile it. https://download.qt.io/archive/qt/4.4/ But this is old browser, it's allmost useless now...
  8. @98SE Yes i have CRT monitor and i use it for first machine, for other machines i use LCD... 1Gb is max without SYSTEM.INI mods. I just tried to see what's maximum but now with SYSTEM.INI mod, i used 1GB + 256MB and for 98fe maximum is 1086MB MaxPhysPage=44000, for 98SE max is 1150MB with MaxPhysPage=48000 if i put 2x1GB - 2GB It gives me BSOD And i did some "benchmark" on this machine with Quake III Arena with different memory modules and results are: 1GB+256MB @ DDR266 - 390 fps 1GB @DDR 333 - 398 fps 2x512MB @DDR400 dual channel - 438 fps
  9. Yes, fresh install and no, I didn't have to reduce memory. For System 3 if PCIE graphic card is used setup must be started with /p i switch. i did some modifications on NVAML.INF (nv82.16 driver) to add 7800GT and some wide screen resolutions.
  10. So where this free 32MB come from? If System Arena is exact 1GB and Graphic card eat 256MB of it, and Cache eat 800MB what's left? -32MB? And what about kernel stuff? It suppose to be there(in system arena) also. So, how is it possible that this system works at all?
  11. It means calculation is incorrect. 8 DOS terminals * 4100KB = 32MB which is 12.5% of 256MB - It is 87.5% used, not 96.5% Like I said earlier, i don't use DOS applications and all 9x compatible windows software i have works fine, so it's not a problem.
  12. @dencorso Thanks, i know about Xeno's VCache patch, but i have no problems with this configuration, if some problem shows up i will try it. @LoneCrusader i use both 98FE and 98SE but i like 98FE more, It's my old habit, Maybe it's my subjective feeling but I think it works smoother then 98SE. However it's not better with more ram then SE, SE was able to use 1.5GB on my old dead machine (Athlon 2000, MSI KT4AV, 2GB Ram, Geforce4Mx440) but FE was able to use 1152MB. it's easy with this tool: http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/winexp.html
  13. 8 DOS boxes available but when i put 128MB AGP graphic card 15 DOS boxes available. And it doesn't crash it just show the MessageBox with this message "There is not enough memory available to run this program. Quit one or more programs, and then try again."
  14. I thought we talk about Windows. If I'd care about DOS i would install DOS. Usually i don't need more then one dos box, maybe two or trhee sometimes and that's perfectly stable. Anyway, i will test it, later.
  15. Nothing was modified, everything is stable. For the Second and Third Machine 1022MB is usable The Third Machine have VIA RAID driver...
