Default Bug#634811: ITP: dillo -- fast and light web browser based on FLTK 1.3

Package: wnpp
Owner: Axel Beckert <abe@debian.org>
Severity: wishlist

* Package name : dillo
Version : 3.0 (yet to be released)
Upstream Author : Jorge Arellano Cid <jcid@dillo.org> et al.
* URL or Web page : http://www.dillo.org/
* License : GPLv3+
Description : Small and fast web browser based on FLTK 1.3

Dillo is a multi-platform graphical web browser known for its speed and
small footprint.

Background:

Dillo 1 was removed from Debian because it depended on GTK 1.2, Dillo 2
was never packaged because it depended on FLTK 2.0 which had license
issues. They're now resolved, but developement of FLTK 2.0 was stopped
in favor of FLTK 1.3.

So I plan to reintroduce Dillo in form of the currently active FLTK 1.3
port aka Dillo 3 which is close to it's first release.

I remember asking for dillo to be removed due to the above, I'm glad
someone has had time to fix the issues. Is dillo v3.0 using GTK 3 or
GTK 2 with no deprecated code or just FLTK1.3? (I'm assuming dillo3 for
Debian would change the default build to not statically link FLTK.)

How does the (unreleased) version compare with Arora (my current
candidate for "small but usable web browser") and how soon is it
likely to be ready for release?

Arora is just a yet another interface for webkit; it takes over an order of
magnitude more disk space than dillo+fltk, and I guess it has memory usage
in that region as well.

On the other hand, Dillo's support for CSS and such is sketchy at best.
There's no javascript or anything of that kind as well.

Another thing is, Arora is dead upstream and no one stepped in to revive it.

I mean, "how is dillo compared to links2 -g if they both have similar
restrictions and links2 -g is (well, was in 2007) IIRC quite light and
fast".
