This is exactly the project I have been waiting for. I'd contribute to
but I'm already working on a sprite system for Microwindows. Perhaps
code will one day be of some use to you guys, probably not. Still, I
to thank you for your work and to wish you all the best.

I have a laptop with 64 megs and I am a student. I will not be able to
update the laptop for a long time, I have to make that 64megs work for

Since the web browser is the single biggest peice of software I use, I
believe, what I need is a smaller web browser. A smaller Xwindows would
nice too, course, I'm already working on that project :)

With either of these, I can do more with my laptop. Furthermore, a
better designed, faster web browser is what I think computer users need
everywhere. And not just internet connected ones. I often read html
and scientific papers on my laptop, as well as on my handheld. A
faster, more efficient web browser is a godsend!

When LinuxCE is finished ported to the handheld, X Windows is not going
work, so they will use nano-X. Then, of course, Netscape isn't going to
fit. So they will use, no doubt, Dillo.

I recently downloaded and installed dillo-0.2.4 on my Linux system.
I must say that I am very happy with this browser: it is fast and it
is able to show a lot of pictures.
I also tried "armadillo/gzilla", which seems to be a competitor to
To my opinion, however, dillo is far superior in speed and performance.
With "gzilla" it was even impossible to work with the search-engine
"google": "gzilla" only displays the first character of the google-logo
and then stops.
On my RedHat 5.1 distribution (with libc5 and without changing dns.c,
and even without praying !) dillo works well, but it is not really small
because I had to install the most recent versions of gtk+ and glib.
Up to now, I was not successful in downloading programs via dillo, but,
of course, after having seen the address, I can download via ftp.
I also tried "mnemonic", which is also based upon gtk+.
However, it seems that this browser can only be installed by hackers.
For me it is no realistic option at the moment.
I wish you lots of success with your development of dillo.
I will gladly follow your progress.

I suggest to make an arrow button pointing upward in the middle of the
Left and Right button.

The button should point to the top of current document, or even better
to the last used link in the document's table of contents. As it is
today the Left buttons goes one document back. As is now, it is annoying
when reading a large document, as you need to use the schroll bar to go
back to top of page.

Sorry that I am not a programmer, else I should have joined the team.
Dillo is the fastest browser I have ever used.

bastante.Todavía falta mucho por hacer,es cierto,pero el proyecto se ve
muy prometedor.Es ligero,rápido y visualmente agradable.
  He pasado mucho tiempo buscando un navegador para linux eficiente,que
haga lo que tiene que hacer sin consumir grandes cantidades de memoria y

 I am a ph.d. student in molecular biology and free-time simpleton
programmer (
 I just wanted to say that dillo rocks. It is the fastest browser I
ever tried on my 486 laptop, sometimes even faster then w3m (when I'm
browsing the gtk+ documentation, for example). Of course, it would need
tables to gain the basic functionality -- but for an alpha release, it is
great, stable and all. I especially like the idea of a gtk+ based
aplication *not* requiring GNOME. This is something annoing me immensly
with most of the modern GUI application: they rely on heavy shots like
or Gnome. I hope I will be able to add some patches to your project. Good

Dear Jorge,

 I would like to thank you for the use of your dillo (0.3.2)
browser. It compiled without event. and works well and quickly. I needed
this to
install a browser on my 50mhz 16meg 486. It even ran without quarrel on
that machine. (netscape, wordperfect, and netraider all fail on that
machine). There is one problem, however, I'm not sure if this is truely a
bug, so I hesitate to list it on the bug tracking system. Under VNC on my
pentium desktop I get the following:

** WARNING **:    unable to find a suitable visual for color image display

followed by:

** CRITICAL **: file dw_image.c: line 718 (Dw_image_get_cmaps): assertion

Would you have any suggestions? Please forgive my not investigating the

assistace would be appreciated!

browser is absolutely great, it does not crash, and it is very fast on
machine I run it on. I beleive the 0.4.0 version is more stable then my

I just thought I'd put in a good word for the browser because I like it
alot. One thing I'd like to see, although, is a way to use the mailto:
command. I use Balsa GNOME email client, it has a command to just bring
a 'new message' and let you compose. The command is 'balsa' the entire program does not come up, just the
message' window... Would it not be easy enough to add this feature to
dillo, allowing to write a responce to a mailto:?

Thanks again for creating the dillo browser!

You seem to be the man in charge...

Below is a quick, _clean_ addition to the UI that is half of what Dillo
missing. It adds four lines to the
file menu.c,
function a_Menu_popup_new,
line 177:

This adds Ctrl-H and Alt-H as Back and Forward hot keys:

   Menu_add(menu, "Back", "<
            a_Commands_back_callback, bw);
   Menu_add(menu, "Forward", "<
            a_Commands_forw_callback, bw);

This was a 'quick' fix and took at least several hours to track down.
NOT figure out how to get that fscking BackSpace key to work so I used
instead. Hint hint :-)

The other thing that is needed from a basic UI perspective is for the
Web page
position to be stacked for recall upon return. Really hate it when I have
1/4 meg web page up, am half way down it, hit a link and then have to
where I was all over again after a Back operation. I would contemplate
fix it, but in view of how long it took just to add a couple of
you guys will have it fixed before I could even figure it out. But all
of this
is just a
_minor_ quibble.

Really Fine Work! This is what a browser is supposed to be. Don' need no
steenkin' key clicks, this is fast enough to make its own sonic crack

I'm one of those XFce users who've been following Dillo's progress and I
wanted to say that the newer cvs builds with the table support are great!
I've been browsing most of the night and am really pleased with it.
It's too bad that sites like LinuxToday and Slashdot can't remember me,
but perhaps cookie support would slow it down too much and so that is a
sacrifice I"m willing to make.
I personally love using Dillo in that really compressed, everything on
one line, mode.
Great work.

I see you have your eye on the ipaq/agenda/yopy/exillion/whoknowswhat

-    Wheel mouse works fine in dillo.
-    Very happy to find the middle click worked on links
-    Space bar won't advance by page
-    No back/forward on context menu

After table cleanup, maybe you could do like w3m and just render frames
tables? I think that would be fine for everyone. I think frames
deprecated anyhow. Background image wouldn't hurt, but hardly matters
much. Less for java (everyone I know hates to wait for java). Java
has its moments though.

a general html reader for a long time :-)

Have been trying different web browsers on my Debian workstation to find
something that is light and fast to work on a P133 laptop I have been
given. I normally keep well away from alpha stuff but thought I would
try it since I was so disappointed with everything else I have tried.
I'm very very impressed, Dillo is fantastic and just what I have been
looking for it's really fast compared to anything else I've found. It's
light with the basic functionality I want ,open multiple windows, open
new window clicking on window, renders tables and graphics with most
operations able to be done from the keyboard. This is just to say
thanks your work is really appreciated and I will definitely be keeping
an eye on developments. There are far too many bloatware web browsers
round now this fills a gap for sure.

I noticed there is a bug report regarding viewing items on eBay, is
there anything I can do to help with this? I don't know anything about
C, but I do development for HTML and Zope if there is anything I can do
regarding testing etc. let me know.

Thanks again and have a fantastic day.

Benn using Dillo for a   bit over a week.
Trying Dillo is a fun    experience.
I was reading the bug    trak ..many are more features than bugs and it's
by reading them
than noticing anything   that i have a lil beef..

Many of the feature enhancements requests mentioned would make dillo just
like any browser.
What's fun right now about dillo is this.It dosent support JAVA ,it has
NO plugins
it dosent animate ,dosent support cookies and there aint a thing wrong
with this.

What is missing is downloads,frames and text cut and paste from/to the

Why did i download Dillo ? Fast, no frills.
If i wanted frills id get Mozilla which i trashed and dont use.
If i need a reasonably fast browser with pulg in support for fun pages
and downloads
i use Opera.

Traditional   browsers are a pain.
Mostly they   do many things and do them bad.
I see Dillo   as the alternative to bloated,slow large and inefficient
traditional   browsers.

See if i need a page real quick i use Dillo
If i could have a fast no frils browser that supports keep
it .
I dont need cookies , animations, flash when i want to get information

I beleive Dillo has acheived this.
Fast to the point and no frills.

Downloads,frames and cut and paste of text, that would be it for me .If
you put in cookies
a way to disable them totally.
Once Dillo is at that point ill put it on archive and keep it .

Nice   work .
It's   a great lil   browser as it is, cant   wait   to see what's up next.

Cookies work. Yes indeed, they work well. The fact that I am sending
this message from dillo proves it (i am away from my home box, and am
using OpenWebMail on my mail host). This needs cookies to work, and it

to leave dillo (I don't go anywhere that uses frames anyway). My one last
reason for using anything other than dillo is gone :-) !

Hello, Just a note to let you know how much I enjoy using Dillo. I
I've tried, and cursed, just about every browser out there for years but
well remember my first reaction upon loading Dillo. It went something
"HOLY SH*T,it's loaded already!". I knew then and there that I had hit
gold. The only thing faster is maybe lynx.

I use Dillo everyday, It is my primary browser of choice. I still keep
Netscape 4.7 and mozilla around for emergency viewing of troublesome
(image maps,java,persistent cookies and the like) but it is a last resort
that will make me fire up anything else. I look forward to a new version
Dillo like a 6 year old looks forward to Christmas.

Thank you very much for all your hard work, it is deeply appreciated.
Gotta go, Ive got a proggy to compile (0.6.3 is out).

I love Dillo. I use it daily and dread the times when I am forced to
up the diesel engine called Mozilla for programs that require cookies,
ssl, java, flash, etc. (which is rare by the way) Before Dillo was
into my lap I was using a script written by Hobbit (l0pht) powered by
netcat! The extra crap is cute and all but hardly worth the wait.   With
Dillo I don't have to sacrifice speed for legibility.

I haven't looked at the cookies patches because frankly I haven't been
able to get any of the patches people have put out to work (except the
forms patch which is great!). Is it possible (I'm sure the answer is
to include "imaginary cookies support?" To just placate the web servers
and accept the cookies but just hold them in memory (ccache.[ch]) until
Dillo is closed. There is really no need to keep them. Web pages don't
require that you have the cookie already, just that you are willing to
accept them.

Maybe this has been covered before and you can all fill my inbox with
mail if I'm beating a dead horse. But, why doesn't Dillo support the
html code? It seems to me that that should be a primary concern. For
instance the <

thanks for Dillo!!! And for the way you implement it!

As a user of an "excotic" platform (Motorola 68040/68060 based), I very
much appreciate that Dillo is purely written in C, and its small size and
high efficieny! Great that libs like GNOME are not required.

Of course I am hoping for new features, but I'd also like to state from a

The largest problem with xfce upgrades is lost links to menu icons.
I'll not go through digging those out from obscure places again, for it
takes too long. Olivier's suggestions may cover the problem. I'll
investigate and, if need be, get in touch with him.

I've used rxvt for quite a while, both with Linux and Cygwin. Some
application was having fits with rxvt, though. I tried the simpler
aterm, and that solved the problem. I'm typing this on the NT side of
the machine, and cannot recall just now what application was causing
difficulties. Some ncurses-based thing, I suppose.

I've done just enough programing to appreciate the labor that goes into
something like dillo. Lots of work and plenty of pitfalls, too. Pretty
neat when things come together.

I just wanted to take a moment to say what an excellent
browser you and your Dillo team have put together. I found
out about Dillo from the XFce site.

With the help of some documentation from a newbie site, I
was able to compile Dillo after loading a few libraries,
and was surprised at how easy the process was. Dillo IS a
very fast browser. Dillo and XFce make my old Pentium I
machine usable again, and my Pentium III is really fast
with the two of them.

I was surprised at the functionality of said
version 0.6.4 is alpha code, but for viewing and navigating
web pages, it is very stable and (again) fast! The
about:splash screen and the dillorc file make configuring
Dillo easy.

Again, many thanks to the Dillo team for a most excellent
project. Please keep up the good work.

hi....i just used the dillo briefly and fell in love with it...:)
nice work!

being a native korean speaker, i tried a thing to display korean
characters on

I changed the line 247 and 252 in dw_style.c as below;

sprintf (fontname, "-*-%s-%s-%s-*-*-%d-*-75-75-*-*-iso8859-1",
sprintf (fontname, "-*-%s-%s-%s-*-*-%d-*-75-75-*-*-iso8859-1,
and 252;
font->font = gdk_font_load(fontname);
font->font = gdk_fontset_load(fontname);

and in result, i could view the korean characters on web pages
of course, the korean font must be pre-installed to work....

Each release that i've tried has been getting better and better. Up until
now however using dillo wasn't
really all that realistic for most of my browsing. However, with this
release, it has been quite pleasant with
its stability and speed. I usually use Opera/Netscape combination but now

I wanted to drop you a note thanking you for your work with dillo. I've
got a reasonably low end system, and doing html editing can be annoying
when mozilla takes so long to load up. It's nice to find a functional
slim graphical browser to supplement my net use (and it's pretty).

I'm interested in seeing a few features though:

- A commandline feature to let dillo load a URL in a current dillo
window, as with:
dillo -current /foo/bar.htm
This would let me edit a file (in nedit), and call on dillo within that
editor to do a preview of the file.. without bothering to surf around
within dillo to load the file, and without bothering to have dillo
called up for a second instance.

and two little features
- alt-left/right to hop back/forward in the history
- ctrl-r for refresh

Again, fine work.. =)

Recently upgraded to a machine with 256Mb RAM running Debian and was
rather shocked at quite how much memory Mozilla used - it's pretty but
I'm not sure that it's worth the memory and dillo runs _much_ faster
work as simple web browsers I think Dillo is my only realistic choice.
One little question (and if I wasn't buried alive under coursework I'd
try it myself) are you going to support several pages within the same
window - I found the tabs feature in Opera and then Mozilla really handy
for fast browsing - is it likely to appear in Dillo?

I posted a note here about beyond linux from scratch (blfs) a few minutes
then re-read the digest. Seems some of you might need to know how to
libpng from sources - and where to get 'em. I recommend the blfs book
common sense instructions on this and other source builds.

Although designed for the 'Linux From Scratch' (lfs) pseudo-distribution
a book on how to build a leading-edge linux using sources alone), the
instructions work for many other distros too.

Just don't ask 'how to's' on their lists unless using lfs! :-)

I want to add my thanks to El Cid, too.   Let's have Moor! :-)))

Cheers, Richard

Konqueror is an excellent browser. However is main disadvantage is that
t is=20
a slow starter. Therefore I appreciate dillo very much. I use it for
local .html, especially documentations, and as an super quick internet=20
viewer. Therefore I configured dillo as browser for my mail client,
and many more programms.=20

It has probably been said a million times (however I could only find 1)
but I like to thank all of you guys for writing Dillo.

It is a great piece of work, that makes the internet actually look

Thanks again

I folks,

It is just to tell you that it is really a decent piece of software that
you have written. It is lean, fast and free.

For web browsing and writing of simple html texts, I use mozilla. But I
was looking for a reader for documentation written in html, and loading
mozilla takes far too long for that. So - congratulations. Should you
decide to inflate dillo to a full fledged web browser, stuffed with all
kind of gizmos, please keep offering a small, fast version such as the
actual one.

Dillo: the ***fast*** browser I was awaiting for ...
No boring stuff like other browsers, all is so simple and easy-to-use!
I just come to compile the last version (0.7.2) with a customized toolbar
(pixmaps.jg.h), this is now PERFECT :)
I don't find u really have to add something (even if I need Javascript
for online shopping sometimes, & I've to launch another browser

POST-IT: just a remark about the PNG support, and the alpha channel:
once the browser has loaded the picture, if it's used again -on
a different zone- the background (which should be 'transparent') remains
with the first
background color...a cache pb?

LAST WORD: Thank u !!!!

First of all, sorry for my english :) , I want to thank you and other
developers of the Dillo browser, for all that you're already done.
I've got a 486 DX4 75Mhz , 24Mo RAM, 3Go HD, on a 640x480 TFT display
Debian Sid.
Under Xfree 3.3.6 with the fluxbox window manager, Dillo is what i use to
see the web because it's really fast even on my old laptop. I know links
and lynx, but i prefer see the web with colors fonts and pictures.
Dillo widgets seem to be based on GTK1.2, it's slower than lesstif but
reasonnably responsive, and good looking.

I tried fresh GTK-2 apps like gftp, and even with simple fonts (no AA,
etc.) it's incredibly slow. I don't know if it will be as fast as GTK-1.2
in the future, but now i can't use GTK-2 based apps on this machine. So
i hope Dillo will stay with the fastest libraries.

Another wish, i like CSS 1 and 2, XHTML and hope to see a good standard
css engine on Dillo ! :)

What do you think about tabbed browsing, and a possible tabbed one in
is it hard to do ? Or a sort of arborescent menu in the middle click of
a page

[close current tab]
[open new tab]
[open bookmarks in new tab]

Just an idea like that, if i middle click on the current page, this sort
of menu appear, i click on [open bookmarks in new tab] the current "tab"
(main window) is cleaning and bookmarks appear, now i middle click again
and one field is added

[close current tab]
[open new tab]
[open bookmarks in new tab]

the littles [<

[Tab 1:]
[Tab 2:]
[Tab 3:]
[Tab 4: Bookmarks]
[close current tab]
[open new tab]
[open bookmarks in new tab]

that's simplier, now i click on [Tab 2:], the main window
this one, and i can middle click on it and choose [close current tab] ...

[Tab 1:]
[Tab 2:]
[Tab 3: Bookmarks]
[close current tab]
[open new tab]
[open bookmarks in new tab]
Maybe a close button near each field will be more fast

[Tab 1:][X]
[Tab 2:][X]
[Tab 3: Bookmarks][X]
[open new tab]
[open bookmarks in new tab]

I know middle click menu need two clicks to go to another tab, opposed
to mozilla or firebird which need only one in apparent tabs, but in the
middle click navigation menu, you don't need to move the mouse to far.

I don't know what can you do with those ideas, i'm not a developer, but
i'd like to see that in dillo if possible, but it's not essential.

Thank you

I discovered dillo yesterday because I was looking for a light browser
for my old laptop. I think it's a great job, and I congratulate you and
the other authors.

I hope this project will stay so active.

Thanks a lot !

Congratulations! I have been using Mozilla Firebird 0.6.1 and it is very
disappointing that it takes half a minute to start on my good old P1-200
with 64 MB RAM. Even when it is running, it runs really slow and uses a
lot of memory. I tried the new dillo 0.7.3 and, wow, it started in one
second and it renders 90% of the pages I visit everyday quite good and

I really look forward to watch this browser grow more mature but stay
small and fast.

Best wishes,

Hi I'm new to Linux and have been reading about all the clever things
you can do with it. I wanted a lightweight browser to put on my laptop
and my friends PC. I tried Dillo and was blown away by the speed and
simplicity. Its absolutely perfect for our needs. Please thank the team
for the excellent work!

Many thanks

Hi Jorge!

I managed to compile Dillo on my SGI Indy running IRIX 5.3,
by commenting out G_DNS_THREADED in dns.c. The only other
problem I had was with vsnprintf(), which doesn't exist in
every OS.

You're using glib-1.x, and you already called g_snprintf()
instead of snprintf(), so why not g_vsnprintf()? The attached
patches fix that.

I like Dillo very much! A fast, modern and compact browser,
which makes surfing on my 100MHz R4000 fun again. Before I
used Netscape 4.08 (the most recent Netscape for Irix 5.3),
which is slow and crashes every few minutes.

Wishing you all the best with your project, and hoping to see
a version which supports frames and CSS! :)

Dillo is a classy piece of software. Thanks for the hard
work, and thanks for sharing.

Thanks once again for dillo, I use it everyday and really love it.

I think my favourite use is in my ~/.mailcap for viewing html emails in
mutt, eg

text/html; dillo -f -l %s ; nametemplate=%s.html

dillo opens and loads so quickly, and renders pages so much more nicely
than something like w3m or lynx, in fact, all mutt users should add this
to their mailcap :)

But I also use a lot of hardware with limited resources where dillo
makes web browsing usable, I dread to think how long it would take
before some of those systems started thrashing if I started up firefox or
something! dillo just blows everything else out of the water for
required resources to features ratio.

  I want to say thanks for your great work on dillo. It's really
great to use the efficient browser dillo is. And even greater to
see that there are people caring about software efficiency and
reaching out to the people who can't or don't want to buy new
computer hardware. The whole point of view behind dillo gives an
extra good feeling when using it. Altough I still have to
overcome my distrust on paying over the internet, I hope I'll
donate once to you.

Friendly greetings,

Gunnar from Belgium
