K-Meleon 1.0 Released

Sunday August 13th, 2006

K-Meleon 1.0 has been released. K-Meleon is a standalone Gecko-based browser for Windows, designed to be light, fast and highly customisable. This first non-beta release is based on the Mozilla 1.8.0.5 code base (the same as Mozilla Firefox 1.5.0.5) and introduces many new features, including a find bar, autocomplete in the URL bar, site icon support, new preference panels and many other improvements and bug fixes. The K-Meleon 1.0 Release Notes have more details and a full K-Meleon 1.0 changelog is also available.

K-Meleon is still built on top of Gecko and XPCOM: it's basically everything Firefox is without the XUL frontend. Extensions which aren't UI gimmicks can usually be coerced into installing on the "native" browsers (Epiphany, K-Meleon, Camino) with a little effort. When XULRunner starts being used as the backend for these apps they even get extension manager functionality for free.
