Thanks for your reply. I can understand that, of course.

firace, do you plan support for multiple tabs in a future version of Forkle?
For seriously collecting lots of information from the internet (as I do e.g. in my job), opening multiple tabs (and/or multiple browser windows) is essential for me.


No final decision on that yet. I do realize that single-tab can be a big limitation, and I'm looking at a few options, but can't make any promises at this stage.


My very subjective opinion.
Browsers with tabs are already enough.
You have a great start for a specialized browser to interact with specific HTML5 applications.
It would be great to have the ability to control the window from the application instead of using hot keys, or at least provide a choice between keyboard control / control from the application.

p.s. Today I use https://www.deepl.com. I hope it copes well with the need to get my russian to you

"Interesting" argument ...
Well, let's build a car without wheels then. There are already enough cars that have wheels. :mrgreen:

In fact I also constantly need multiple tabs open in my day job...
However at this time, I have to prioritize, so I am focusing on security aspects and basic functionality first,
with other possible features (such as tabs, bookmarks, preferences gui, general polish, etc) much further on the roadmap...

By the way I have found an issue where certain sites fail to render (eg: https://www.marketwatch.com) I am testing a fix and will release it shortly.

Maybe you can add a new entry to the right click menu: "Open URL in new window", then launch another instance of Forkle with that URL as parameter? That would already be very helpful.

I just gave it a shot but even that is a little less trivial to implement than I first thought. I should have a little more time to spend on it in the next 1-2 weeks.

The latest release (0.62.0.107) has a first implementation of this, where you can open a link in a new window by holding the Shift key while clicking the link.
It could still have some bugs. Do not hesitate to let me know if you encounter any issues.

(I can't guarantee that I will keep this feature enabled by default in future releases. I might make it an option.)

Forkle will now be the only browser on my USB thumb drive.

Does the forkle_dbg.log file contain those kb, that are not installed on the system?

Would it be possible to extract the necessary .dlls and put them directly into the
forkle folder (to make it independent from installed updates, e.g. when using
it from a portable usb drive)?

The log file lists the KBs installed that are currently installed.

Unfortunately, I wouldn't recommend simply bundling updated DLLs with the browser without patching the OS itself. It would be too risky - an application is only as secure as the underlying OS.

Is there a reason you can't install the latest security updates?

I just don't want to. Unless MS doesn't fix their sh** regarding testing their
updates so that they don't mess up the system anymore. Ok, I know, that
won't happen^^

I have other software in place (Malwarebytes, etc.), run regular scans with
HitmanPro, etc.

I see. I might add a "-danger" command-line switch to be able to bypass security requirements.
It would be for advanced users only, as it is obviously not a great idea in general.

I've just posted 0.63.0.150, which includes several bug fixes and optimizations.

You may also test Forkle's URL homograph phishing detection feature with the "proof-of-concept" link to a fake apple.com website at this blog:

https://www.xudongz.com/blog/2017/idn-phishing/

(Compare with Firefox for instance!)
