@Templario
Jörg (and Andrea - maybe NSAPI?) work on OWB. The Friedens work on Timberwolf.

If you have installed AmiUpdate it will do the update for you.

But it will be better that work in Timberwolf instead of Origyn because the time and resources they will can dedicate to one only good browser instead of two and not so good good as the origianl Firefox. The time is the key.

@Templario
They are not the same people, and they will never work together (ie: they will not join forces).

Also is always better to have a second browser actively developed.

Great news IMHO

@ Templario

There is enough room for two web browsers in our tiny world, especially when it's developped by talented people.

Thanks Joërg & Andréa.

I am sorry to report that the new cooking handling broke GoogleMail again - I cannot log in. I have "force https" enabled in GMail, if that makes any difference.

Also, Google would not remember that I use iGoogle. So definitely cookie problem, and probably not related to https.

On the plus side iGoogle's Google Reader preview now works.


Going back to OWB v3.15 now, as I need GMail

Well, we hope that it will be true and we'll have two good browsers.

That's great to see an update ! Thanks Joerg !

I wonder how it is possible to get sources and which tools are needed to compile it myself on OS4 ...

@Templario

Having both (OWB and Firefox) would be the best solution, freedom to choice is better that force one to use a single browser
Also don't forget NetSurf !

Thats what I thought too. There is room for three or four good browsers. Netsurf is a good browser too.

Timberwolf is a port of firefox, which uses the Gecko layout engine.
OWB uses the webkit layout engine.

Timberwolf will be a complete browser package and more, as seen on other platforms.
Joerg himself has said, he is only porting OWB, and adding Amiga enhancements, not developing a full browser package.

So two different sources, two different aims, and two totally different projects.

@ChrisH
I have a similar problem with my mail provider gmx.net. On the other hand the favicons are nice and it *seems" to be littlebit faster - but that might be a effect from being euphoric about the new release... Thanks Jörg!

@ Templario

I also want to add i prefer OWB/Webkit, so with this there are many reasons to be happy to see OWB updated.

Thanks for fixing #259 :) Now i can visit my homepage again and also redirects to my files. So now the only thing left to use IBrowse for is for downloading big files as there is no download manager in OWB.

Joerg muchos thanks :) Now its time to test it everyday and see how it behaves :) So far so good and now also commenting in facebook works again.
