General discussion about K-Meleon.
[quote=ndebord] I would like to talk about an issue I've been thinking about for some time. Which is HOW K-Meleon handles search engines. The old method had one disadvantage. You had to manually update your list of search engines with new entries. But it also enjoyed one nice advantage. By right clicking, you were presented with a list of ALL your search engines (in my case that is now 70 engines) to choose from. The new method is what I would call a "Ring" of 10 entries. You can change the list of ten that are used, but this is now the official method for using search engines with K-Meleon. But you are stuck with only that list unless you change the defaults in configuration. I have noticed one possible side effect of this new method which is that fewer people seem interested in adding new search engines to the list in Wiki or post info about new search engines in the forum. Is there a cause and effect here? Can't say. I would like to propose that future distributions of K-Meleon include BOTH the old and the new search engine methodology (which is what I've done with my version of KM 1.0.2). I do NOT recall that there was a discussion about the changeover to the "ring" method, merely that it was something that was developed, looked good and was incorporated without much or any discussion. What do you think?[/quote]
