The available resources are grouped into different categories depending on what you want to do.
The best source for K-Meleon information is in the Documentation section. There is also the User's Guide and Reference Manual, both for K-Meleon 0.7 and last updated in 2003. Among the external K-Meleon resources you can find some links to other general K-Meleon pages.
The skinning tutorial shows you how to install a new skin that you have downloaded from the Themes page. You can also download older skins for 1.1.x & previous versions Old Skins. Extra Throbbers can be downloaded and used together with any skin or theme. The external K-Meleon resources page has links to skins and themes pages located throughout the web. To customize your Windows desktop or personal web page there is also a list of Icons, Buttons, and Banners for K-Meleon.
You can download translated versions of the K-Meleon menus from our Localization resource section. That is also the place where you should find links and pointers to help you localize the Mozilla part of K-Meleon.
This information is kept in the ConfigFiles. You can edit these files through the PreferencesDialog. Beginners should use caution when editing these files and it is helpful to create a test profile for extensive customization.
Much of K-Meleon's behaviour can be altered through the PreferencesDialog. Even more can be altered by editing the PrefsJS?, UserJS, UserChromeCSS? or UserContentCSS files directly. These files are read by the Mozilla/Gecko rendering engine. Further information is available in the following documents.
Non-official plugins are available here.
You can, for instance, install and use an external bookmarks manager or an external cookies manager together with K-Meleon. Or you can use an external mouse gestures program. You can also use a download manager or miscellaneous tools like a tool to make K-Meleon your default browser or a password manager.
The skinning tutorial shows you which files to edit to make K-Meleon look the way you want. Visit the ThemeTools page to see a some of the recommended applications that can be used to help create K-Meleon themes.
K-Meleon uses Gecko, the rendering engine from Mozilla.org, and should be detected as such. You should use K-Meleon to see how Gecko handles your pages, not how K-Meleon handles your pages. Gecko aims to be fully standards compliant. If K-Meleon fails to follow the standards due to limitations in Gecko (and thus is also visible in Mozilla and/or mfcEmbed) you should report your findings to bugzilla. If K-Meleon is the only browser that fails to follow the standards on a certain page, it should be reported to our bug database. Never ever try to get K-Meleon to "work around" bugs we have. Write standards complaint pages and let us know if we fail to handle them correctly. That's all.
On the Unofficial K-Meleons page you can find unofficial versions that could be interesting for you.
Experimental K-Meleon Extension Setup (KMES): On the Experimental K-Meleon Extension Setup pages you can find a description of this extension setup system and more interesting for the users, a lot of extensions (some Mozilla extensions, for example) adapted for K-Meleon.
K-Meleon Extensions Central: http://kmext.sourceforge.net is the place where you will find many of the popular mozilla xpi extensions modified to work with K-Meleon as well as many other non-xul extensions written especially for K-Meleon.
