Yes, released 4 days ago, but somehow never made it to the news here. If you knew about it why did you not submit it?

Me too. I never had problems with the back button, but I had problems with the redraw (in 3.17 and 3.18), but now it's being fixed.

No, but neither did the earlier version on my system?

Sure, non released software is always better than available software, obviously.

@Phantom!

The backbuttom seems to be a issue with pictures.

F.i. try to write Commodore 64 in google and follow any given link (f.i.) wikipedia, then press back..

If you search with google and pictures are displayed then you might have problems pressing back, no picture, no crash..

* sniffs my armpit, looks at the mirror * No, I have pretty face and I don't smell like a troll. No * shakes head * I am not a troll. However, this is not ment to be a troll post either, this is ment for clerfication and understanding that is all.

Me, personally, I figured if I have a firefox and an Amiga based browser I would go for firefox in a heart beat, does that make me a troll? O_O.

@Alkaron

I have the same problem. If I search for Commodore 64, soyuz, rose, or tiger, all these searches produce pictures and crash when I press backbutton to go back to the list. If I search for aminet there are no pictures and no crash.

I am sure they may be some who are not using AmiUpdate, who knows. It is just a lot more helpful if people would share news of updates.

/me gets a jump on the news, OWB v3.20 out real soon now...

OWB has come a long way & I use it for those times when IB just doesn't cut it any more, but it seems to crash a lot more with the newer versions. Wondering if is because we don't have os4.1.1 yet.

@ sundown

Please submit news when v3.20 is released.

I don't get any crashes while using OWB.

I just downloaded it and I'm having a problem. When I use this version (and all of the previous versions) to download something, I do not have a progress bar. Could someone tell me what I am doing wrong? Is there something I need to install or something to get one?

Thanks.

@Ned

OWB does not show a progress bar while it is downloading files. If your computer is hooked up to a router or switch, you should see more activity on the lights during the download and less activity after the download is finished. Some people use a program called ClipDown for downloading files. If I recall correctly, it shows a progress bar. I still use IBrowse for downloading large files.
