Software News   Software News : Rebuild of OWB
   posted by tomazkid on 11-Jan-2008 7:17:14 (3153 reads)
Jörg Strohmayer has made a less memory-hungry version of OWB (Origyn Web Browser) for OS4.
It is slower, but makes it more usable on Amigas, and with less ram.
It is an alpha version, so take care.



From readme:
Quote:


Rebuild of OWB with a special memory allocator, it's slower but needs much less RAM, on some pages 100 MB or even more.
I have only 256 MB RAM in my A1 and with this version most sites work, with Andrea's version I run out of memory even on quite simple pages.
For some very simply and small pages this version might even work on Amigas with 128 MB RAM, but 192 MB is probably the minimum to use it.

@jahc

First you get the lzma from his site.

then you run it with 'lzma d archive'

And he proberly choose the packer as its one of the best.

After being tipped off that he may be using an archiver that ported himself, I examined his "AmigaOS4 Software" column a lot closer and saw this on the same page: p7zip-4.16.lha

This archiver does the trick.

Thanks!

How much memory should the final build consume?

Will OWB ever work comfortably on 128 MB CSPPC?

@Metalheart

Nobody told you to delete the old version. And you are free to compile a faster version yourself.

@Jörg (if you are watching)

Tnx!

There's an updated version from today (2008-01-11) that's a lot faster.

If by "virtual memory" you mean demand-paged memory, that is already being beta tested right now and will be available in a future patch.

This is nice. I've often said the one thing that was crippling any chance at the Amiga being more than a doorstop/hobby machine was the lack of a decent browser. Now maybe that'll change.

@TheDungeonDelver

Yes. But it need text cut'n'paste to be anywhere near competing with IBrowse..

I tried to fill in a form with some text once which AWeb failed to send (IB had crashed and I didn't want to reboot just then) so I cut the text and started OWB. Problem was that I couldn't paste the text!
