Tiny HTML viewer improved

MU has done some work on my original Genie HTML viewer and greatly improved it.

Here are my original blog posts:


Here is MU's latest version:


Mark has figured out how to create a profile, and text is now rendered antialiased.

Mark, one thing I couldn't figure out, is how to get the forward and back buttons to grey-out as appropriate. Any idea how to do that?

The executable 'html-viewer' is just 10KB and starts virtually instantly. I'm thinking that I might use it as the internal HTML viewer for Woof alpha7 -- that will be for the Help page viewer and the CUPS web interface.

Grumble, grumble...
I have just been through the exercise of compiling and 3rd party drivers and have got everything ready to upload, including a source sfs file.

Looking at lwn.net:

I'm announcing the release of the kernel. All users of the
2.6.29 kernel series are very strongly encouraged to upgrade.

It looks like lots of bugfixes. Sigh, I suppose I will go through the whole exercise again.
But, alpha7 will have the kernel.

I'll do it one more time, but that's it. Unless they fix some super-serious bug in, I'm going to stay with for a long time.

k2.6.29.30 brings substantial EXT3 performance improvements
"The 2.6.30 kernel will contain fixes which seemingly eliminate many of the latencies experienced by ext3 users. This article will look at the changes that were made, including a surprising change to the default journaling mode made just before the 2.6.30-rc1 release."
