Dillo

tested on SHR-testing (2009-03-03)

Introduction Very fast lightweight browser. start-up time less than 1 second (fastest Freerunner application). Configured by editing ~/.dillo/dillorc. Not well suited to finger navigation.
Tested version / Latest version dillo-ssl_2.0-r0_armv4t.opk/2.0 (changelog mentions 2.1, but only 2.0 is available for download)
Engine FLTK2
Installation

SHR-testing:
cd /usr/lib
ln -s libssl.so.0.9.8 libssl.so.0.9.7
ln -s libcrypto.so.0.9.8 libcrypto.so.0.9.7
ldconfig
wget http://misc.andi.de1.cc/dillo/dillo-ssl_2.0-r0_armv4t.opk
opkg -nodeps install dillo-ssl_2.0-r0_armv4t.opk

Start View Its own local index page with help.
Typing in an URL Easy, directly at the address line.
Back / Forward, Stop, Home Work all right.
Popups No popup window appears.
Tabs Tabs work quite well, however, new tab can be opened from the File menu only. loading in the background can be set in dillorc with focus_new_tab.
Frames Frames do not work - dillo offers you to choose which frame to display.
Bookmarks Bookmarks are handled by its own local dynamic web form which allows to add/delete bookmarks and organize them in sections.
HTML Forms Forms work ok.
Gmail Cannot log in :-( Dillo just displays annoying warning about meta refresh tag and clicking it does not go anywhere.
Google calendar No - the same problem as with Gmail.
Cookies Cookie test successful.
SSL Annoying message "The remote certificate cannot be verified (code 20)" for each https page load. But after "Continue" works ok (but not the page from Template - it does nothing, don't know why).
Password No.
Javascript No Javascript.
CSS Some "alpha" CSS support is in. This feature seems to be in development right now (March 2009).
ACID Do not pass (or just partly - requires Javascript?).
IPv6 No.
Notes Good for pages with mostly text and some pictures - works very fast.
