Lightweight webkit browsers

The last days I am trying webkit browsers like uzbl, dwb, surf, luakit etc. I find them great. I would never think that in this poll https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=170384 dwb would be the 2nd choice!
Till now I prefer dwb and surf.
Some features I miss is mainly the different visited links color and secondly the sync between pcs.
Is there any workaround for the visited links color?

Nope. And there won't be, because webkitgtk-1 isn't being developed anymore. webkitgtk-2 has this feature, so you'll need to wait for these lightweight browsers to switch to that. Upstream bug 32789, marked wontfix: https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=32789

Re: Lightweight webkit browsers

Yes https://www.archlinux.org/packages/comm … 86/luakit/


Edit: Wait a sec, dwb-git depends on webkitgtk2 too, but all the links are blue after I restart the browser. Am I missing some setting?

webkitgtk2 is webkit 1. webkit2 is something different all together.

Re: Lightweight webkit browsers

Ah, I mixed the versions of gtk with the versions of webkit. Thanks for clarification.

I'm staying with firefox at least until version 665 ;P

Re: Lightweight webkit browsers

surf does need a lot of customization, installing patches, configuring dwm config.h and recompiling dwm etc. When all is done how does it compare to dwb which has all these features out of the box?
