OK, I was under the impression that Haiku was ok for limited daily use. That it was for the most part stable. Granted it is missing some software but I expected the software that is part of the default install to be basically stable. For the most part this would seem to be true… but Web+
My experience so far with Web+ has been pretty poor. First it’s slow. I can forgive that. But, it started crashing on me randomly. I entered a ticket with the crash report. These are not good because I can’t give reproduction steps to recreate the problems. The issues is. It’s random. I can go to any given page. Yahoo, Cnn, Haiku etc and it may work or it may crash. It may crash immediately or I may be in the middle of something then it crashes. But there are not “steps” I work in software QA so I understand. Reproduction steps are important. But, having random crashes is not a good user experience either.
I keep my Haiku updated. I check regularly. About 2-3 days ago I started getting KDL problems. Always when Web+ is running. Again it doesn’t seem to be anything I can reliably reproduce so there is no use in reporting it. Today, I came home from work and booted my Haiku Laptop. In the last 30min I have had 4, yes 4 KDL. Only when Web+ is running.
This make the system totally not usable for me. I can handle it missing some software. I can handle Web+ being slower than any other browser. I can handle it not being perfect. But, it is unusable for me. I have had to go to my Windows PC to type this because I can’t keep Haiku running long enough to enter in from Haiku.
My install is less than a week old.
Is anyone else having these types of issues? I am ready to just format the drive and say Haiku is just not worth the hassle.
