ttuuxxx's Puppy "431"

Ttuuxxx has been remarkably fast!

He has already created an upgrade for 4.3:

He has built it with Firefox instead of SeaMonkey.

Note that removing SeaMonkey has a flow-on effect, rendering some apps unusable, such as PuppyBrowser.
Ttuuxx has posted a patch that is supposed to fix that.

I haven't tried it. It's 2.30am here, I'm going back to bed.

Well beyond the call
I believe I speak for most in expressing my appreciation for your "extended" service - well above and beyond the call of duty. You are a true inspiration. Thank you! 4.3 is going to be five-star.

FF & SM
Folks will know my dislike of SM. It gets worse. The NatWest Bank does not recognise it. On that basis alone it is long past time to pension off this thoroughly unpleasant browser. Good to see Sylpheed in the PM; why not swap it for the better version Claws, now a branched development?

Many Prefer SeaMonkey
The browser debate is more about opinions than rigid facts.

I prefer Seamonkey as it is an integrated suite rather than a collection of erratically compatible/incompatible apps.

NatWest Bank needs to fire their Systems Manager if their site will not recognize Seamonkey as it is essentially the same code-base as Firefox.

IMHO, YMMV, ... doc

Seamonkey is still the best choice
Seamonkey 1.1.18 > Firefox 3.5.3

Firefox 3.5.3 is a memory hog, the UI feels sluggish and the flash video performance is 10% slower.
