I love Nightingale. It's one of the hidden treasures online, and I certainly think that more people should be aware of its existence.

A few glitches aside, it's a beautiful and intuitive piece of software. Though it crashes when I switch from a radio stream to a music file. (Sometimes)

One of the things that I do enjoy doing on Nightingale is browsing the web.
Can anyone be kind enough to tell me, which version of xulrunner Nightingale is using?

Anyway, since Nightingale is a hybrid piece of software, I was hoping that there would be some basic browsing addons available. An Adblock, for instance, would be nice.

I'm not a coder so I can't really take matters into my own hands, submitting bugs and feedback is as much help as I can give.

Thank you so much for all your hard work in crafting Nightingale! Big Grin
There used to be an adblocker, but as we're using a quite ancient version of Gecko (the backend from Firefox), only very old versions of AdBlock run in Nightingale without bigger efforts.
We are working on upgrading our Gecko, but it happens to be a huge pile of work we're slowly digging through (well, mainly johnmurrayvi does).
Adblock Plus 1.3.9 works for me.

I wouldn't recommend NG for regular browsing though:

It uses an old XULRunner version which potentially has security vulnerabilities.

Unless manually disabled, it can use all installed plugins, which are potentially vulnerable, e.g. like Java, or Adobe Reader. Open a new tab and type 'about:plugins' (without the quotes) into the URL bar.

There are no modern browser security features like Click-to-Play (yet).

It doesn't support TLS better than 1.0, and thus is vulnerable to the BEAST attack.

It's also vulnerable to the POODLE attack, unless one manually disables SSLv3 (that's true for other browsers though).

I honestly had no idea...

Thank you for the warnings.

Truthfully, the shoutcast plugin doesn't find every station that's actually there.
Sometimes I have to go to Shoutcast.com just to listen from their site.

That makes no sense to me, considering that it is shoutcast and all stations should be searchable...
Anyway, I'll be more careful about using NG for browsing. I pray that a newer version with updated Gecko is released soon. There's probably already one in development...

Thank you all, for your amazing work. Smile
