Firefox or Dooble for the OS2World Forum
« on: August 30, 2023, 12:15:03 am »
Hello.

I need to ask this because I haven't updated the OS2World forum script and I found out long time ago the SMForum 2.1.x is incompatible with Firefox 45 (There is an issue on the reply text box where you can not see the text menu options). If I update the script we all require to change to Dooble. So I need to know.

Regards

I usually use SeaMonkey, with scripting disabled.

I generally use whatever browser I have open, on whatever system (OS/2, Linux, or Windows) I happen to be working at.  Most often that's some version or other of Firefox.

I like browsing OS/2 World with Firefox 45.

Dooble is too light on features to be a comfortable browser. Last November at Warpstock we talked about needing bookmarks and saved passwords as the basic features that a browser should have. Filling out forms automatically is nice, but not really needed.

I agree with Neil in total. I want a little more out of Dooble before I switch.

Hi Martin

I use Seamonkey - thanks to all involved in Dooble development but it is currently a very unreliable browser prone to crashing the system so is not a working alternative for me.

I have been using Dooble, for most browsing recently, but it is not very user friendly. I tdoes work fine with OS2world, as it is. It also works fine with Firefox, so don't go breaking something for no reason.

Hello.

I think I will not update the forum script, and ask again in a year to see our browser situation.

That is a good idea Martin. Dooble is making progress.
