Also, for some reason when visit specific web pages... such as twitter... an upper case letter will show and the rest of the word will be completely hidden. When I log out of Twitter, I will just see a "Y" and the rest of the word is gone. Has anyone else had this problem?

Since this is webkit-related, you can still try a newer version of webkitgtk, for example by compiling webkitgtk2-svn from AUR.

Is getting webkitgtk3 versions discouraged?

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

You can use the gtk3 version, it just has some disadvantages:
* gtk3 has a focus bug in window managers with sloppy focus like dwm, awesome, ...
* libwebkitgtk3 doesn't support flash
* dwb's colorsettings don't work with some gtk3 themes

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Alright I will stick with just using dwb-hg.

Another question: For fonts from other languages such as Korean or Japanese, how can I change the default fonts for those languages? In my case, I would like to change the default Korean font.

Is there a way to disable the history function in dwb? I tried setting the length to 0 but it apparently doesn't work.

Enabling private browsing works for me - is there a detailed description of what settings this creates?

@jakob: You just set history-length=0? Thats what I think of as a natural approach but somehow doesn't work - any reason which might cause this setting not to work?

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

With background-tabs set as true, using F to follow a link does not background the tab. Tabs are only backgrounded when middle clicked with the mouse. Is this the desired action? If so, could you make that configureable as well?

@bslackr: there is also a hintmode for background tabs, the default shortcut is ;b, so you could map hints_background to F.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

I noticed something with the pkgbuild for the new dwb-hg (1745-2).

I was able to build it with cinelli's pkgbuild modification but the original pkgbuild looks almost the same except for the brackets and the link going to _hgroot... but I can't build dwb with the pkgbuild provided. Also, I changed the pkgrel to 2 instead of 1.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

I've been playing around with dwb, like it a lot. However, page loads are 25-50% slower than they are with chromium... I've just been using dwb from the official repos if that matters.

Hm, as I started using dwb almost 2 years ago, I can't really tell if anything else was necessary to make history-length=0 work. Without giving any confidentials away, I pasted my settings file. Maybe you'll have to check the sync-files option: I've set it to "cookies session" and left history out… maybe that's the reason why yours is still being saved? Although that should be considered a bug then…

Thanks for sharing your config. I just tried using your config and it too only works when private browsing mode is enabled. Does the disabled history still work for you when you disable private browsing mode?

No, you are right. With private browsing disabled, the history file fills up regardless of the history-length=0 setting

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Just started using dwb - and it feels amazing how snappy it is, especially compared to Firefox.

I was just wondering: I am using zotero a lot for managing my references, and obviously it does not exist for dwb. However, there are so called “connector plugins” available for Chrome and Safari, so that one can use zotero standalone straight from there. Is it somehow possible to make them work with dwb?

I figure, the above is rather difficult, so is there someone here using zotero as well and could say a few words about how to integrate it into your workflow with dwb (e.g. using a filter to download/integrate a reference into the database)?

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Thanks for this wonderful piece of software.

I have have suggestion to dwb: toggle caret browsing by a keystroke. The benefit would be that you then can select text via the keyboard:
1) start to "search" for the desired text to be copied via /
2) switch to caret mode -- the cursor stays where the search ended
3) press Shift + arrow keys to select the rest of the text you want to copy
4) exit caret mode, copy selected text

I think this is the workflow which is implemented in vimprobable.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Hey Portix, it's been a while since I've used dwb, but I'm really missing it (Firefox is just too heavy). The only reasons I went back were because google-talkplugin failed to function correctly and HSTS support hadn't yet been / wasn't going to be implemented.

Have either of those problems/features been rectified/realized? If not, no harm, dwb is still one of the better browsers I have ever seen.

All the best,

-HG

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

@ball: You can toggle caret browsing with a keystroke, in the custom commands section on dwb:keys you could add

<shortcut>:toggle enable-caret-browsing 

@HalosGhost: I don't know if the google talkplugin works with webkitgtk, hsts was implemented by someone and will be merged into the default branch soon, the next release will have hsts-support.
@rg_arc: Setting different fonts for different languages is not possible. It wouldn't be too hard to write a script that changes the font setting depending on the top-level-domain, i don't know if that would be sufficient for you.

That's awesome news! I'll definitely be reinstalling it on next release to see if everything works. It would be fantastic to switch to a more minimalist browser, finally. Thank you again!
