it isn't available for x86_64 but there's a 32bit rpm:

don't know if the 32bit dependencies will install without conflicts.

I tried the install from the yum repo myself, and the dependencies aren't complete/correct for an install on x86_64, you need to also do

Code:
yum install nss-mdns.i586
and restart the browser. (it installs the x86_64 version which may be an error)

Not sure if it's worth ~84 32bit rpm dependencies, it looks very basic, and has little functionality beyond basic page rendering. But it is fast and unfussy.

If you have any unrelated network problems after install then I would remove the nss-mdns package. But note that with it installed you get zeroconf via avahi (if avahi-daemon is running), and can access your machine via hostname.local from other similarly configured machines (open multicast dns 5353/udp in the firewall on each machine)

IMPORTANT: Unless it's fixed, and I don't believe it is.

Installing google chrome did, at least previously, pull in the i386 version of nss-mdns, which broke yum, ssh, and many other things. Make sure you have nss-mdns 64 bit installed first.

it installed the x86_64 version for me, so had to do the i586 version manually, whether you have problems afterwards seems dependent on your dns provider

Unfortunately, on x86_64 you need to go through the old 32bit fixes for plugins you used to have to do for firefox, which I can't be bothered with now. But I can see how it is popular on low spec 32bit machines, it's very slick

Thanks for pointing out the thread min, that covers pretty much everything I think.

Installed it in my 32bit laptop with F10 and turned out to be pretty unstable: faster than other browsers overall but it would just shut down at many pages.

Thanks.
Joe.
