TODO

CHROME
Chrome dropping 32bit OSX support
http://www.zdnet.com/google-chrome-drop ... RSS2452425

-Chrome 28 can be used on Windows 2000 if you obtain the chrome tool! According to sources Chrome 30 (Is or isn't?) the last version that supports pentium 3 processors and so on...the last version of Maxthon browser capable of running on Windows 2000 with Ullrollup updates is based off Chrome 30 as well. I'm not sure if Chrome 30 will work or not.
Note: The latest versions of Firefox will not properly work with Blackwingcat's kernel32! Version 26dg??? seems to be the last version that properly works with the last version of firefox!
Note: UllRollup updates seem to be only good with about Firefox 44 before giving the message requires Windows XP SP2 or later!

Last ver to support XP
Last ver to support Vista
Last ver to support OSX 10.6-10.8 (v50?)
Last ver to support 32bit Linux (v50?)

VIVALDI

SAFARI
-Safari (Just thought it would be worth mentioning...I believe there is a patch to get the last version for Windows working on W2K, but I haven't tried it myself. This browser is kinda dated anyway.)

Firefox Portable 28.0 and 24.8.1esr (Note: UNOFFICIAL VERSION OF FIREFOX) according to here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1052888 (Probably the best version of Firefox without installing unofficial patches and updates!)

RETROZILLA

QUPZILLA
-Versions of Qupzilla that use Qt4 web kit (Qupzilla 1.43, versions before 1.6.6 untested). It will require you to download Qupzilla 1.1.5 and copy its Qtwebkit4.dll, you also might need to copy Phonon4, Mscvr90, and Msvcp90 if the newer browser doesn't have them(Version 1.6.6 and later doesn't work not sure which is the last version to work on Windows 98/ME, thanks jumper from MSFN!!!)

NT 3.1 and Netscape 3.04, Netscape 4.08 and Opera 3.62?
http://www.betaarchive.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=23034


Include compatible flash versions:
http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/152471- ... ge__st__20






I tested various Seamonkey versions:

2.1b2 - 2.7 - bookmarks doesn't work
2.1b1 - black window without text (in all compat modes)
2.1a1 - 2.1a3 - OK

I upgraed from 2.0.14 to 2.1 alpha 3


I'd tested SeaMonkey 2.4.1(Engine:Gecko/20110928 Firefox/7.0.1) in November (KernelEX Wiki). System: Win ME; KernelEX 4.5.2. It works, but not recently visited addresses, history and bookmarks. There's the same problem with Firefox 4 and higher. For Firefox it's possible to install an add-on like HyperBK. I believe there isn't such add-on for SeaMonkey.


I can't honestly remember the last time I even used a bookmark. heh





http://weblogs.mozillazine.org/asa/

IIRC blackwingcat has the VC++ 2010 working in 2000 so this shouldn't be an issue


Rumored that FireFox 13 is not compatible with 2000:

Requires Kernelex for Windows 2000 by blackwingcat:

or Wildbill http://bristols.zxq.net/windows2000/updates/#kb2393802

Chrome Offline Installer\Standalone





Netscape Communicator 4.08 on NT 3.1
Netscape Communicator 4.79 on NT 3.51

According to this post http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/155384- ... ge__st__20
Firefox 13 requires the unofficial kernel update by WildBill


Blackwingcat may also have it working with his wrapper

Qemu 14 - Windows 98-ME-NT4
(Requires modification of qemu .exe files to use Qemu v14 on the above listed operating systems)

Tested System Rescue CD v2.0.1 on 98-ME-NT4 using Firefox v3 on 11-16-2011

Also tested with Tiny Core Linux v4.0.2 using Chrome on 11-16-2011

Any Linux OS that works in Qemu should work but keep in mind memory limitations of the host and host processor speed.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lightweigh ... stribution


Latest Qemu doesn't support KQemu. Check older versions of qemu and/or vmware and vpc.


Qemu Manager v7.0 works on 98-ME-NT4 (with KQEMU for hardware acceleration)
(Need to hexedit qemu.exe and replace "freeaddrinfo". "getaddrinfo", and "getnameinfo" with "gethostname". (May be able to use KernelEX for 98/ME instead of doing this)
Also may need to change in the VM options to change "Main Display" to "Qemu Window".

Tested with Tiny Core Linux v4.0.2 using Chrome on 11-16-2011.


Either Dual-boot with Linux, or use a LiveCD. Using Qemu on 9x\NT4 on older machines is not ideal due to older processors and memory.

I thought Chrome dropped XP support. Or does it still work with 64-bit XP?

Hello, this is Aiko-Chan from MSFN. There is some information I can confirm to you for sure

Windows 98/ME
Opera 12.02 is the final working version on 9x WITH KERNELEX

Windows XP
Chrome 49 is the final version of Chrome on XP
Advanced Chrome backports a newer version of Chrome (mostly from 51, and some parts of 48 and 54)
Windows XP 64-bit
Waterfox 46 is the last working version on XP, currently. I heard the author plans to fix the issue but I haven't seen one yet.
https://www.waterfoxproject.org/blog/wa ... e-download

I believe it's indeed possible to backport a Webkit browser into 9x. However, no one at MSFN, including myself knows enough about C++ or Qt 4.3.3 in order to backport newer QtWebKit code onto Arora Browser. Also requires using an older version of MingGW (I have a copy).
