Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Do you get any errors if you start dwb from a terminal and try to add a website?

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Wow, trying dwb for first time and very impressed. Seems to render faster than chromium, but I have not done a proper test.
I would like to be able to convert all my chromium bookmarks to dwb format. If someone has already worked out how to do this please let me know, otherwise I might refresh my sed and awk skillset P

I wrote this simple script in python for this purpose.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Hi there,

I recently found out that there is a method to track down a user even with cookies/javascript disabled, it uses the cache (demonstration is at http://lucb1e.com/rp/cookielesscookies/ ). You can even type a message and the message will be there next time you visit the site.

So I tried to get rid of the cache by disabling the options enable-offline-web-application-cache and enable-page-cache, and the cache-model option is set to webkit, but that doesn't work, the website in question is still able to identify me.

I also used lsof to see what files dwb what using but no luck there. Closing and restarting dwb doesn't flush the cache either.

In comparison when I hit the clear cache button in firefox it works, i.e. my visit count at the website is reset, and the message I typed disapear.

Any clues at how I could reset dwb's cache?

Thanks in advance !

Is there any output if you start dwb from commandline and then try to add a website using sda?

@John0000: Have you removed ~/.local/share/webkit/databases, ~/.local/share/webkitgtk/localstorage and ~/.cache/webkitgtk after disabling html5 databases and localstorage?

Perfect - thank you very much lahwaacz! In the meantime I just dumped the Chromium bookmarks to HTML and have the HTML file bookmarked. That's fairly easy but your little script is a gem.

I'm not entirely sure, because I've disabled cache the minute I started using dwb, but what about ~/.cache/dwb ? This directory is empty on my system, but maybe you have stuff in there. If so, quit dwb, remove it and restart dwb.

dwb has a setting called 'adblocker', you must enable it, even if adblock_subscriptions is installed.

i have tried the following 2 commands directly from cmd line & none of them seems to have any effect :

i have started dwb without any parameters & opened www.google.com & tried to add website by using "sda" :

debian gnu/linux listing the package version : dwb (20130503hg-2)
excuse for the above.
the following packages are currently installed on my system, & i think i am using 1.0 :

~$ dpkg -l | grep webkit
ii  libkdewebkit5                         4:4.10.5-1                    amd64        KDE WebKit Library

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Your dwb must be linked to an older version of webkitgtk, speeddial doesn't work if dwb was linked against a webkit version < 1.10.
Btw, this is an archlinux only forum, i think this is not the right place to discuss debian specific problems. If you need support for debian you can join the irc-channel #dwb on freenode or write a mail.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Thx for the answer portix

~/.local/share/webkit/databases is empty, even while doing the test. I also tried with 000 permissions.
~/.local/share/webkitgtk/localstorage I don't have a webkitgtk folder neither here nor anywhere in my comp, same thing with localstorage.
~/.cache/webkitgtk  same

@sekret
I do have a ~/.cache/dwb, empty, even while doing the test, and I even changed its permissions to 000 afterwards.



However, the strange thing is that after a couple minutes, the cache seems to be flushed on itself, without closing dwb or doing anything, because after reloading X times the count on the site reset to 2 and the message I typed disapeared.
Either the cache should work always, or not at all...

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

The site you are referring to uses the image cache, the problem is, the cache is handled by webkit internally, dwb cannot flush the image cache because webkitgtk doesn't provide any methods to flush the cache. The only way to prevent webkit from using the cache is using reload_bypass_cache.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

The gtk2 version should work with the normal flashplugin, or with gnash-gtk. The gtk3 version will need nspluginwrapper I believe?

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Per default plugins like flash are blocked in dwb. Maybe that's the problem? Look on the settings page for a setting called plugin-blocker.

Yes, that was a problem.
But I'm using Pepper Flash, not flashplugin. It will be supported in the future?
