Wayfarer, the most feature rich Web Browser that the Amiga has ever seen so far, is apparently closing in on its 3.0 release. It will be based on the current stable WebKitGTK release!

Quote:
Work on Wayfarer 3 is progressing steadily. As with the change from v1 to v2, this implies moving to a more recent WebKit. In this case, this would be the current stable WebKitGTK, meaning the engine would be about half a year newer than in Wayfarer 2. That puts it at September last year for last feature changes from main.

Jumping forward or backward (by mouseclick on timeline) in YT-video does'nt work anymore.......

Some extra detail would be in order here: are you using iOS spoofing or MediaSource playback? Unfortunately I don't really have the time to look into this right now, so it'll likely be addressed in Wayfarer 3, once that's ready.

Version 3 already? And now it's on the Amiga? This is unheard of!

Well, only if you're running MorphOS on it

They haven't, there's no JavaScript JIT

@Mobileconnect

From one of the jacadcaps summary:

- A very recent WebKit with a standard JS interpreter with several big endian fixes. Compatibility with most websites is pretty good.

You have to solve endian issues with jit or without it.


Wayfarer is near:
Jacadcaps in morphzone

OK, so I'm writing this using Wayfarer 3... Generally more things work than I've expected. Had to fix pixel format conversions for example, but it seems that most of the JavaScript is fine - Void Linux JS patches are still there and working. I got OffscreenCanvas to work, which I couldn't get working with Wayfarer 2. Surprisingly, Cloudflare browser check appears to pass now (don't hold your breath, they may break it at will). One thing that so far refuses to work is Google Street View (renders all black). Media playback appears to work, and I was indeed able to repro the same issues with seeking in iOS mode as was reported here. Will take a look at that next I suppose...
