Software News   Software News : Odyssey Web Browser 1.14 for MorphOS released
   posted by guruman on 8-Aug-2011 23:48:05 (2900 reads)
Less than a month after the last update, Fabien Coeurjoly has now released version 1.14 of his web browser, and also changed its name to Odyssey.

Here are the highlights of the release:

Read more...



- 05.08.2011: Odyssey Web Browser 1.14 (July 2011)
- Changed the name to "Odyssey Web Browser". Like it or hate it, but you can
still call it OWB, anyway. :)
- Updated to WebKit r91657 (July 2011).
- Updated to Curl 7.21.7.
- Use OpenSSL 0.9.8o since 1.0.0d introduced issues with some sites that
used to work previously.
- Added a popup menu in search string showing Google suggestions for the
currently typed word.
- Added a cookie policy option in URL settings (possibility to filter on
both URL and cookie names with regular expressions).
- Added a cookie policy option in global settings.
- Allow deleting a cookie domain (and all its cookies) in cookie manager
window.
- Decrease rootgroup spacing in fullscreen mode.
- Added FULLSCREEN REXX command.
- Added a fullscreen menu entry, for people lacking F11 key. :)
- URLs with video/audio MIME types can now be played directly inside the
browser, if the related MIME type action is set to "Internal viewer"
(assuming the codec/format is supported).
- Don't show scrollbars in video fullpage mode.
- Fixed a possible deadlock in MediaPlayer when the object is disposed
very early.
- Made support for FLV and OGG optional in media settings (disabled by default),
since these formats can sometimes confuse some sites like DailyMotion (refusing
to play anything if OGG is available ?!), and YouTube (serving FLV in HTML5 mode ?!!).
- Honour the "attachment" attribute in Content-Disposition response header
and force download when it's set.
- Implemented the necessary logic in CURL backend to upload documents in
Google Docs and YouTube (it could already work before by spoofing to
older browsers versions, but they're not supported anymore).
- Upload progress is now notified to the DOM (allows scripts to display progress).
- Show an appropriate status/progress and lamp for upload connections in network
activity/network lamps.
- Fixed month display in FTP view.
- Make use of a FTP template page (resource/FTPDirectoryTemplate.html) to enhance
the look of the FTP view.
- Set a proper mimetype (based on extension) for the URLs with a FTP scheme,
instead of displaying them as raw text content.
- Fixed YouTube HTML5 fullscreen mode, since it changed again (Youtube_Fullscreen_Fix.js).
- Updated youtube.js userscript to work after the recent YouTube changes.

No, it says "Odyssey Browser" is "A user customizable web browser". And a commercial one at that. :(

iBrowse
AWeb
Voyager

Time to go for a trademark then if they don't have it for the name and sue them !

Actually I don't care for the name, what I do know: it works !

Regarding IBrowse, Stefan had it covered, at least regarding the PowerPoint IBrowse.

dunno regarding iBrowse with a lower case I, but Apple does pay Cisco for the use of iOS, complicated world this naming business.

Guess what? Two wrongs don't make a right! Just because someone *may* have done something wrong, does not mean you should go ahead and do something else wrong too.

Additionally, those browsers (that you quickly found using a Google search) were likely not around when their Amiga name-sakes were introduced. If the Amiga software predates the similarly-named software you found, then I doubt the Amiga software would loose a legal case. (note: IANAL)

Additionally, "Celframe Voyager" doesn't seem too similar to "Voyager".


FINALLY, I would like to point out that I look forward to the OS4 port of Fab's OWB, and in no way intended my earlier post as an attack. I simply pointed out that Aminicle's rebuttal (to tomazkid's stated problem) was clearly wrong. There may be other reasons to discount tomazkid's stated problem, but I haven't seen a valid one yet. And well, Fab may simply not care in any case, but at least he now knows there is a potential problem.

@Rose

I was referring to this pointless debate on naming of what is essentially a free product. I seriously doubt Fab will hear anything anytime soon in regard to the use of the name Odyssey.

Yea, it's doubtful. And as said above, this other Odyssey browser doesn't really look like a real product, anyway.
