Stefan Burström writes on the IBrowse homepage: "Hello all of you! I thought I should break the silence just now before christmas. This fall has been an interesting one with lots of things going on. I originally planned the IB2.3 release about 1.5 months ago and decided to bring in some people from the mailing list to help us hard test the release candidate. Unfortunately (?) some of them took their job far too serious and told me that, no, you cannot release IBrowse in the state it was back then. Hm, back to the code again. Now 150 reported (and fixed) issues later I hope they are more pleased. We are currently about to begin testing of the very final release candidate and if everything goes as expected (and this time I am alot more confident ;) you will see an updated IBrowse around New Years Eve. In the meantime, you can check out the summary of the history. Have a great Christmas everybody!"

nice job! IBrowse is the no 1. browser on the amiga, and this 2.3 release will be great (hope they got most of the serious bugs).

happy x-mas!

In reply to Comment 1 (kriz):
I'm planning to make this my main browser instead of Voyager, assuming
the JS is as good as they say.

But not having Flash will be a step back. Let's hope that 3.0 with an
up to date implementation of Flash is not too long delayed.

There seem to be far more sites that require Flash than CSS, but of
course both are needed. I have come across sites that simply lock you
out if you don't have a browser that supports Flash Version 6.

CSS OTOH just gives you black text on a black background on Amiga
browsers.

There are plenty of sites that lock you out if you don't have IE or Netscape. If I spoof as IE then it works. BTW, can IB spoof. I bought IB & AW because some things work better in one than the other.

Yip, 90% of the flash that is out there is a waste of bandwidth, thankfully i've noticed a decline in the number of sites using it. CSS is nicer to use anyway :)

but its possible to configure external flashplayer ? like swfplayer on
aminet or Voyager's player ?

most of the movie official sites uses flash, and I usally gotta download
the swf files and load into editor to get the url's in them for wallpapers
and trailers :)

You can try to use swfplayer it is also in PPC, it isn't the best you can expect but it is still in development.

Really want more powerful javascript!

Having to pop out to an internet cafe because a button won't respond to a click, is not very good for credibility!

hmmm...I hear Microcrap are about to assimilate Macromedia. I doubt much that flash will work with anything other than IE after that. Resistance is futile.

Even if that isn't a rumour, it's not a done
deal yet.

IMHO Flash is a waste of bandwidth but still it is
used by too many sites as the only method of giving
you the information you need.

In reply to Comment 12 (koan):
I agree Flash is a big waste of bandwidth. Unfortunately it is sooooo seldom that the best technology wins out on the Web. In the world of computers marketing is king. A master marketer with crap product will win out over great product with crap marketing pretty much all the time. I guess that explains why advertising execs make the big bucks.
