    5 Dillo is a is a fast, small footprint graphical browser. Version dillo-0.8.6 is now considered a very
    6 stable beta. Dillo does not support Java, Javascript or CSS, and the current version does not support
    7 FTP, HTTPS or frames. It is, however, very fast and so is useful on older, slower machines. It supports
    8 downloads and can support cookies.

    10 However, dillo depends on GTK+ which has been superseded by GTK+2. GTK+2 was considered too heavyweight
    11 for dillo, and the decision to base dillo2 on FLTK2 was made.  Dillo2 is not yet sufficiently stable for
    12 inclusion in BLFS, nor is FLTK2.  hence these wiki-instructions for the brave.  These have not had much testing - just like dillo2!

    14       Dillo always interprets web pages as if they had the ISO-8859-1 encoding. Thus, it is useless
    15       for reading non-English web pages.
     14The dillo project has announced a release candidate and will shortly release dillo-2.0 .
