Firefox 2.0.0.11 fixed a bug introduced by the 2.0.0.10 update in the <canvas> feature that affected some web pages and extensions.

1.) K-Meleon does not have many Firefox extensions that use <canvas>. smiling smiley

1.) The html tag called <canvas> that is effected is part of HTML 5 and that is not yet used by web pages because it is still a draft and that is not supported by browsers . smiling smiley


But we could update to advertize our browser smiling smiley

You can see the main difference in the "canvas" feature guenter is talking about on this page: http://developer.mozilla.org/samples/canvas-tutorial/3_1_canvas_drawimage.html
If you go to this page using KM 1.1.3 the square to the left is blank. (Actually, you may not even see the square. On the other hand if you go there using KM 1.5a within the square to the left, you will see a graph like figure.
I understand that the FF people also fixed a few minor security problems also. By the way Seamonkey 1.1.7 sees the graph properly.

@ Bruns: Er...How is your work schedule lately? :-) Your upgrades are the easiest and friendliest way to upgrade GREs for KM 1.1. Version 1.8.1.11 seems stabilized at last. It ought to endure for quite a while.

@ Fred: Thank you for your latest update for 1.02. I still keep 1.02 in my machine, and with your upgraded GREs it sure runs sweet!

Terry,

Fred's updated KM 1.0.2, as you say, has no problem with that "canvas" issue.

A nice little update imo.
