K-Meleon 74 was listed on 29 Sep 2014 at FileHippo for downloading and also some other sites ... in case anyone is interested.


*** Also you can follow any additional news on KM 74 changes or news here :


K-Meleon 74 Release  (the first top sticky)





Latest posts from Page 2 :




* Also these websites seem to say "Windows All" or list all the Windows versions ... I am fairly certain it won't work with Windows 9x and also possibly not with Windows 2000 ... but I am not 100 % sure ... for XP and higher, I would think.


OK the last post at the KM 74 thread on page 2 seems to cover a few extras and what OS should work with this new version ...

The new version is announced on many software sites now.

But most sites claim KM74 would still run on Win2000

(Aside from showing old version screenshots and sounding like it were developed by Firefox)

We really could use a few basic details on the news/download/forum pages.

Perhaps something like that?


(Download KM74....)


Much improved display of modern websites.

New settings for hiding titlebar and tabs multi-line

Based on Mozilla-Code ESR24.


System requirements:

Windows min. XP SP2 / Disk space min. 64MB (empty cache and profile)

About tabs multi-line, dimly remember it was announced as experimental/for testing? Does it fully work now?

And still confused that UA says gecko 24.0 but platform.ini 24.7


FileHippo Main Page:





K-Meleon 74.0

I've been running the last two release candidates, and now the full version.  I never thought that K-Meleon would make it, but I'm glad to stand corrected.

how is it resource heavy ?

less or same as FF ?

If you want true Windows user experience
try Longhorn builds: 3718, 4029, 4066

I thought someone might answer your question, so I will reply. I have no real answer for you ... I don't use Firefox and I am not using this newer KM version at present.


I am using KM v1.8.24 which is "connected" to the newer version on early research or trials. I was using (and still have it available) the KM v1.60 by JamesD and then in August I discovered the KM v1.8.24 ... it's more like the KM JamesD version but newer. It doesn't seem to use much resources.


Go to the KM forum under the General tab and ask your question ... I am sure JohnHell or JamesD or someone will answer your question ... you do not have to be a member to post anything, I am pretty sure.


I seem to remember someone making a comment about FF and KM some time back ... it may have been JohnHell.
