Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

IMHO remove Adblocker is bad.
You know, also some month ago here Dwb did goes over 900Mb of Ram so I'd to unistall it. Now I'm tried it again and it needs less Ram than FireFox.

BTW there is a way to save a web page in Dwb? Something like <^s> in other browser.

IIRC this is webkit's standard behaviour to make reopening closed tabs faster than other browser engines by keeping the last 10 closed ones in memory. See chromium for example.

If you refer to the chromium 'branch' I have to agree as I have seen this same behaviour in Midori. Though I haven't seen, at least I do not recall it, this kind of behaviour using a browser of the 'lighter webkit branch', that is, jumanji or uzbl.
Therefore I guess these 'cousins' of dwb do use a cache handling that avoids the 'RAM blocking' and the ultimate massive swap use.

I have been looking through dwb's 'Settings' and I am right now testing the browser behaviour with the cache model set to 'documentviewer'. For now it seems to reproduce the behaviour I am used to. I noticed though that once I resumed from hibernation that there was a heavy swap use but I do not know if it is related to this new dwb cache model I am testing.

EDiT - Seems it was a momentary joy as swap use just jumped to the previously used amount (without the use of an adblocker list - I use privoxy - nor disabling site elements setting enabled) sad

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

After a while fighting against vimium or vimperator I moved to dwb, and I like it !
Thank you for that great browser.

Only thing I did not manage to reproduce yet is the ignore mode of vimperator which disable normal mode on some websites/pages so you can use default keyboards shortcuts (e.g gmail).

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Hi portix
I verified if lib and script directory are in place but the error

** (dwb:2399): CRITICAL **: void webkit_web_frame_load_alternate_string(WebKitWebFrame*, const gchar*, const gchar*, const gchar*): assertion `content' failed

is there
also i have forgotten to mention also about this error

D-Bus-registration failed, using fallback mode

It is possible that the fallback mode is the problem?

The message that dbus registration fails is just a message, not an error or warning.
Are you sure that the files are in the right place? The assertion is only displayed if dwb cannot read lib/info.html or lib/error.html.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Hi portix
Thank you for your replay.
Im very sure about the files are in the right place. Could it be something else perhaps?
it is also strange why this lines are not working on my system

g_string_append_printf(content, filecontent, t->title);
g_string_append_printf(content, filecontent, panel);

(that's why I made the patch in my first post)

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Hey, can anyone tell me how they got HTML5 youtube playback working? I've followed everything in this series of posts but not having any luck.

With the youtube_html5 extension the youtube UI appears and is clickable, sometimes it reverts to the default crappy UI but nothing happens, no video or loading. Without the extension I just get the message "this video is unavailable". I'm really trying to avoid installing flash on my little netbook since it destroys my battery life.

There's also the autoquvi script, that uses quvi to play youtube videos and such in mplayer.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

I'll try that, but I'd still be interested to know why HTML5 isn't working (I tested other HTML5 video playback sites) --

Is it because I have a useragent pretending to be Firefox (this was to stop sites displaying in their mobile formats)?

Or maybe because I copied my config files over from a rather old version of dwb?

Edit: OK, autoquvi works, at least for youtube.. it's a bit of a pain though, having to manually choose quality and stuff each time. Also the fact it opens in a separate window. Nice not to have to rely on flash though. Shame the html5 stuff doesn't work.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Ok, html5 video doesn't work on any website and this feels like it should be reported as a webkit/dwb bug.

It works for me pretty well (YouTube, embedded).

If flash destroys your battery life you possibly don't want to switch to html5, it needs far more cpu than flash.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

I have a problem with adding search engines: I use "gs" or :save_search_field, I type a keyword but pressing Enter does nothing..
This has only appeared recently, I can't seem to find the cause

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

@portix: I think I've pinned the issue with closing high-res images down. It only happens when I've got auto-shrink-images deactivated and full-content-zoom acttivated (I use both of these options to "zoom" images with + and -). If I toggle both, the issue disappears. Though I need to test it thoroughly to be sure.

Are you using the hg-version or the community package?

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Whoa, this one has progressed quite a lot since the last time I tried it. I'm really impressed!

Looks like I can actually replace Firefox with dwb now. It does everything I need.

A quick question: Is there a way to add stuff to the user agent string instead of completely replacing it?

I actually upgraded to the newest hg version, and the issue is now gone.
I was somehow convinced that I had upgraded, but I hadn't.. my mistake, sorry

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Hi,

I created a small tool to create and manage and open bookmarks and search engines with the help of perl, yad and dmenu for dwb. Try it out and tell me if you like it:
https://bitbucket.org/bschnitz/dwbmt .

Benjamin

Btw.: Are there other interesting scripts you use with dwb? It could be interesting to create a list somewhere (Maybe in the dwb wiki? @portix: what do you think?). I know there might be some interesting stuff already mentioned in this thread, but I was really to lazy, to get through *all* of the 54 pages, it has by now.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Hello portix , Thank you for your nice contribution to the community.
I have a request. Is it possible to emulate the 'save image as' behavior on any image without following it / opening  on another tab and doing "gd" there.
Just like [;d] to follow link to download, Is there a way to follow image to download . Basically [;i] and [gd] or [;d] combined.

Thank you for your time.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

On the bottom bar on the right, there is [ S] for scripts, [P] for plugins (if required by the site). Those I know. But sometimes there appears [Q] and/or [ B]. What do these entries stand for?

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

B indicates that a site is bookmarked, Q indicates that a site is quickmarked.
