  1. Modern Browser Project 2018

    It seems that add blocking can make a browser horribly slow when using blocking lists because there's a huge number of blocking rules. That's what I found when trying Otter browser under XP.
  2. Antivirus for xp?

    https://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2016/08/researchers-crack-open-unusually-advanced-malware-that-hid-for-5-years/ So. Who still think his computer is secured ?
  3. @roytam1, do you have an idea about this bug ? https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1126635 I have it with any html5 video and with any Firefox release including New Moon and Basilisk.
  4. Antivirus for xp?

    If we need to run that kind of rotten bloatware, the advantage of running XP is totally lost. The only thing you can do to secure any kind of web browser is to use malware lists in µBlock Origin and to use a fake user agent. Nowadays there's a lot of "security experts" on forums, they seem really worried about how secured is their computer. I think it's because they don't know how a computer work. So they think that constantly play the Russian roulette with system updates gives them a great level of security and of course a great knowledge in computing. In fact most of these never wrote a single line of code in their life and totally ignore how a software work. That's precisely why they are so worried, not understanding how their system can be screwed up. I always wonder how many of these "experts" disable Remote Desktop services and of course how many of these "experts" regularly backup their data. How many of these "experts" don't save the password of their bank account on their computer then the browser asks to do so. Personally, the only system I hope is secured is the server of my bank account but for my personal computer I don't care a d*** if anyone get access to my holiday pictures. Instead of believing in fake security, I prefer on the contrary to know that my computer is vulnerable then I take care and I do some backups. I would do exactly the same with a supposedly "secured" system. There's surely some backdoors in any MS system anyway so computing security is done for simple minded people. Have a nice day.
  5. There's not much changes for now Congratulations.
  6. Compiling Chromium browser for XP

    It's unfortunate that it is so complicated, that would be a good choice. I tried to compare FF 52 ESR and Chrome 49 using Page Speed Monitor to compare page loading time and Chrome is clearly faster than FF. Apparently it's not possible to use the extension with Pale Moon so I don't know exactly. It seems faster than FF 52 and slower than Chrome but I don't know exactly.
  7. XP Apps Repository

    Great !!! thanks a lot. Is it the only patch needed to build ffmpeg ? https://github.com/tumagonx/XPitory/blob/master/static_port/ffmpeg/ffmpeg-3.x.patch I thought it would be a much bigger diff. Thanks again.
  8. I wonder if it would be possible to use LAVSplitters instead of Primetime thing.
  9. Compiling Chromium browser for XP

    Microsoft, Google and others done great efforts to kill XP so that people buy new hardware and new licenses, so it decreases of course. Firefox lost users because it's a bloated crap. In one hand they say they want to make a better Internet but in reality they didn't fix some html5 bugs that exist for years and now they drop million of XP users exactly like Google does so they are not better than Google.
  10. Compiling Chromium browser for XP

    I'm not sure but it seems that QtWeb has its own cert management like Firefox does and it seems to work very well with ECC. Unfortunately it uses WebKit and seems totally dead.
  11. Compiling Chromium browser for XP

    I use this one http://prxbx.com/forums/showthread.php?tid=2172 with a badly written start/stop Py script I done : ProxHTTPSProxyMII.zip That's very useful for all the cloudflare hosted sites with free account.
  12. Compiling Chromium browser for XP

    Firefox and it's 10% of users and it will probably decrease.... Chromium would be a better choice if it's possible to add ECC support like QtWeb did. But browsers are so complicated that I doubt it will happen.
  13. It works ! Thanks a lot, this is greatly appreciated and much more useful than other trollish topics. It would need more testing but at first glance it seems to work with a NVIDIA 8600M GT and last XP 32 drivers. Thanks again to you and to roytam1 for all the efforts.
  14. Windows XP - Deepest Impressions

    I done all these tests in Virtual Box. I took the total startup time, from the "start" menu of the VM to the network icon available in the task bar. It is surely longer in a VM than on a real modern machine of course. The host computer is also 10 years old. I tried also Debian 9 with a minimal LxQt and the startup time is even longer. It's 1m43s while it uses the same amount of memory than XP, about 80 MB. It seems than the kernel init is very long I don't know exactly why. A last note to say that the real host was installed in 2014 and the memory usage of XP on that real machine is 140 MB, so the memory usage grows a little bit with time apparently or maybe drivers take more memory, I don't know exactly. I use Clam AV on it, so there is no real time scanning. With Avast installed it uses 275 MB.
