I've been using OWB 3.7 for a few hours now. IMHO, this is the best update so far. Very fast on my machine.

Thanks,

I cannot believe this, this http://acid3.acidtests.org/ website have done 100/100 and passed in all tests except time in Amiga system verses Windows FireFox have done 71/100 and stopped and internet explorer have only done 20/100 and stopped.

What does this mean?!

@Foody

Guess you could say that PC browsers suck. OWB fails the link test, but scores 100/100.

@Foody: Hehe, the beta version of safari 4 passed also the acid 3 test with an 100/100 score and failed the link test too *lol*

On the other hand sending E-Mails with GMail is still not working (except if you switch GMail to html mode), I think such things are more important than the acid tests... This was supposed to be fixed in Galekid, seems it didn't make it.

Congrats Jörg, very nice

Now when is this going to become the 'official' OS4 browser?

@cHaOs667 Could that possibly be because they're both Webkit browsers? :)

Of course opera 10 alpha is the only one that passes acid 3 without any failures. Regardless, kudos to Joerg for another great release!

I just tried it and my net banking finally works with OWB, it didn't work with any of the previous versions, so good stuff!

I'm also delighted to see that gif anims also work now.

However the default FONTHINTER still makes the fonts look blurry, I have to adjust the FONTHINTER tooltype to FONTHINTER=0 to make the fonts look nice and sharp, I think FONTHINTER=0 should be default.
