I have created a proposal for this template recreation - available here User:Kozuch/Web browsers. It is mostly rewritten the List of web browsers, but there are still few sections to add. I think it is nice to have a template that covers all web-browser articles on all pages because of easier navigation. I have no idea how the deleted template looked like though.--Kozuch (talk) 15:58, 26 March 2008 (UTC)


should we really keep netscape in the list, since the "project" / browser is dead? mabdul 0=* 18:01, 30 May 2008 (UTC)

The template seems to contain browsers both past and current. Netscape's not the only one; there's also NetCaptor and the older IEs. I suppose it wouldn't make any sense to remove Netscape by itself. Maybe, if you'd like, we could somehow differentiate between live and dead browsers in the template? -Clueless (talk) 23:40, 30 May 2008 (UTC)
that sounds better: a new group that contains disconntinued browser. maybe i will doing this in the afternoon mabdul 0=* 11:03, 31 May 2008 (UTC)
Or perhaps we could format the dead ones differently (italics or non-bold, perhaps?) so that they still remain categorized by their rendering engine (i.e., Trident or Mozilla or others)? Do you think that info's useful enough to keep? -Clueless (talk) 17:19, 31 May 2008 (UTC)
that sounds better. but no matter how we made this: we should del them, mark as discontinued or extra group or something els, because so it is too unclear. we could also del the internet suits out of this template since i made a new template extra for them. at that time i expand the internet suites article! mabdul 0=* 17:26, 31 May 2008 (UTC)
Speaking of Netscape, the box now lists "Netscape 6 to 9" in the Gecko category and "Netscape 8" in the category above it... RobertM525 (talk) 19:12, 8 June 2008 (UTC)

Related articles[edit]

What about to put "(list, list for Unix, comparison, history, usage share, timeline)" from the title down to section "Related articles". The title is a bit crowded now.--Kozuch (talk) 19:08, 3 November 2008 (UTC)

mmh, maybe creating a new group! mabdul 0=* 19:52, 19 December 2008 (UTC)

Lunascape (web browser)[edit]

The Lunascape (web browser) actively allows users to switch between three rendering engines (Webkit, Gecko & Trident). Not sure where it might belong on this template?—IncidentFlux [ TalkBack | Contributions ] 20:24, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

put in every section ;) mabdul 0=* 19:52, 19 December 2008 (UTC)
MB better create new section, eg multi-engine browsers? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:20, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

Redesign again[edit]

maybe we should made a redeasign and rm the disconntinued browsers/made an extra template for them. and we have too many template!

  • gopher
  • internet suites
  • web browsers
  • mac os x web browsers
  • early web browsers

maybe we should change the system to disconntiued / active and mac mabdul 0=* 19:52, 19 December 2008 (UTC)

browser in which category?[edit]

EGBrowser, KidZui, Zac Browser

also adding a offline-browser (maybe as a new group?!?) in example: WebCopier mabdul 0=* 00:55, 13 January 2009 (UTC)


I don't see it mentioned anywhere on the W3C website. I'm removing it from the template. --Toussaint (talk) 19:36, 22 February 2009 (UTC)


The Pwn2Own contest is a hacking contest to exploit web browsers. how should it more specific? The article is quite young, but in a few days all relevant information will be added! (the part that it is for browser is at that moment missing!) mabdul

Hi, I reverted your edit with the explanation that textbased browsers do also have not one layout engine. let us discuss this problem on the template-talk-page. mabdul 22:30, 2 February 2011 (UTC)

Hi, Mabdul. Thanks for the notice. I do not want to trouble you over such a trifle. I don't mind much. Well, I think text-based rendering is a form of layout rendering, albeit the extremely simple one. However, Java has nothing to do with layout rendering at all. In fact if you look at the browsers in Java section, each of them have their own layout engine. Oh, and one more thing: Before I split the mobile and desktop browsers in this category, Opera Mini was listed under Presto section, while it is known that Opera Mini is a Java application. (There were other mobile browsers too, like Mozilla Firefox Mobile. Some in this group and some in that.)

Like I said, I don't want to trouble you at all. If you are unsatisfied and wish to play fair, call a third opinion. But even if you don't, I don't mind. Fleet Command (talk) 00:51, 3 February 2011 (UTC)

DS & DSi Browsers.[edit]

Since when are those desktop browsers? The DS and DSi are mobile devices. (This is NuclearWizard; I just don't feel like logging in.)— Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:21, 3 October 2011

Nobody said that these are desktop browsers. Only that they are using Presto as engine. mabdul 06:29, 4 October 2011 (UTC)
