Conkeror is a programmable Web browser based on Mozilla's
XULRunner, inspired by GNU Emacs.

Type `C-h t' to view the tutorial, or see the wiki at for more information.

Installation instructions

Run `make' to compile conkeror-spawn-helper and create the
conkeror launch script. Run `make install' to install

Compilation options

   - make PREFIX=/usr:
     Install conkeror to /usr instead of /usr/local.
     Needed in both the build stage and the install stage.
   - make DESTDIR=../pkg PREFIX=/usr install:
     Install conkeror to ../pkg/usr.
   - make etags:
     Extrude etags for ease of emacsing.
   - make dist:
     Create conkeror-$version.tar.gz, where
     version=$(grep '^Version=' application.ini | cut -d '=' -f 2)
   - make clean:
     Removes conkeror, conkeror-spawn-helper, versioned
     tarballs, and etags from the current working directory.
   - make uninstall:
     Remove files created by make install (remember to set
     PREFIX and DESTDIR, if need be). You should probably
     install by creating a proper package using your
     disribution's packaging tools instead.
