Dillo web browser
Dillo is a multi-platform graphical web browser, known for its
speed and small footprint, that is developed with a focus on
personal security and privacy.
The dillo3 series uses version 1.3.x of the FLTK GUI toolkit
The core team currently plans to focus on implementing the CSS
feature of floating elements. This will greatly improve
dillo's web page rendering since many sites have adopted floats
instead of tables.
The core team welcomes developers willing to join our workforce.
NOTE: With FLTK-1.3, when running on X with Xft enabled (the
default), font naming is more restricted than it was with FLTK2
as used by dillo2. If your font_* preferences are no longer
working well, please try the fc-list command as it is shown in
Here's a list of some old well-known problems of dillo:
* no FRAMES rendering
* no https (there's a barebones prototype).
If you don't have FLTK-1.3 (try 'fltk-config --version' to check),
you can get it from:
and build it like:
tar zxvf fltk-1.3.2-source.tar.gz [or latest 1.3.x version]
sudo make install
tar jxvf dillo-3.0.3.tar.bz2
sudo make install-strip
In order to use the hyphenation feature, pattern files from CTAN need
to be installed.
This can be done with the script dillo-install-hyphenation.
Call it with ISO-639-1 language codes as arguments, or without arguments
to get more help.
These are installed by "make install". If you don't have root
access, copy "dillo" and "dpid" to some directory in your path
and install the dpis by running "./install-dpi-local" from the
top directory (they will be installed under ~/.dillo).
Dillo compiles on *BSD systems; please report on this anyway,
and note that you'll need GNU make.
If your dillo crashes or locks at times, just use:
so dillo uses a single thread for name resolving.
Dillo may compile and run OK on Solaris but (please report):
* use gmake (a symbolic link make -> gmake works OK)
Solaris is very inconsistent so you may need to add/remove:
at link time.
