Thanks for the update.

In general it seems to work well, but for some reason my gmail web login is no longer working with this release. Is it just me or are other people also having problems using gmail with this release?

@Dwyloc

Both 3.16 and 3.17 seems to have problems with logging into several sites and also with preserving the logging status information (f.ex. quitting the program seems to lose the information and, on a couple of sites, the same happened after just making a post). It is also impossible to even load the login page of PayPal.
To me, it looks like the "new" handling of cookies is broken. For this reason, I've returned to 3.15.


@klx300r

Yes, I can confirm that kind of delays reappeared (they're not as bad as they used to be, though).


@Jörg

I already said it somewhere else, but I guess that repeating it won't hurt: thanks a lot for your hard work!

I personaly think its great to keep getting updates, but now that firefox timberwolf will be out next year sometime, do we still need efforts placed onto OWB?

Or is the ultimate plan to have two new browsers, and OWB being the default web browser for Amiga OS5 for example?

Whereas Timberwolf will be a package that can be bought for x amount of dollars?

Cheers

This is not right thing to say. Timberwolf is new thing (and I will belive when I see results) and OWB started long ago. I think author deserves every right to be celebrated inside this small comunity, and he deserves every support possible.

Comments like this are not supportive. Everry platform today has few working browsers (IE FF Opera Chrome etc)

After all, man does it free....
