hey there,

I am not anymore using webmacs since some time, and I won't be able to be the maintainer of webmacs.

If anyone is interested in being maintainer, please say it in a comment!

Hi,

I currently use webmacs as a primary browser and prior to that conkeror for several years. At present I have free time and wouldn't mind attempting this.

By the way, would you mind sharing which browser you are using now?

Thanks for all your work on webmacs!

Hi,

Great news! Well I currently switched back to Firefox, and in combination with the stumpwm window manager it makes me happy - I use the mouse more than what I would like to, but it's still a pleasant experience. You can see my (quite basic) stumpwm configuration here: https://gitlab.com/parkouss/dotfiles/-/blob/master/stumpwm/.stumpwm.d/init.lisp

For the maintenance of this project, we can start by giving you access to the repository, how does that sound?

hey parkouss it is sad to see you have stopped development but I am glad you are moving it over to someone else. I am a novice when it comes to the project but I hope you can do well jane. I can also help in my free time also, it would be a cool way to learn python

That sounds fine! I will start reviewing and reading through everything tomorrow.

Stumpwm is a great project, it's made me happy as well :-)

@shuwan4 I will likely need help so please do keep in touch

Sad to hear, I've tried stumpwm, its pretty cool and solid, but I find qtile more maintenable in the long run.
Please do continue to help with webmacs, its great stuff!

Also does webmacs already unload unused buffers, because when I switch to older windows, the content is not already rendreded.

Someone looking for webmacs alternative can look for,
https://github.com/manateelazycat/emacs-application-framework

It is in active development and has all the features of webmacs. Looks like they are trying to imitate webmacs.

@HumHongeKamyaab imitate is going a bit far, it has a very different goal; integrating qt into Emacs just happens to give you a qt based browser as well.

But thanks for the note!
