No CSS Support in IBrowse 2.5

With 64MB Fast RAM, you can’t browse sites that require more than 650MB RAM to work. But for browsing HTML pages, it is enough and this is the market that IBrowse for Classic Amiga is aiming at. I don’t understand why they continue doing the AmigaOS 4 version which is running on hardware that can coup with today’s browsing standards.

IBrowse 2.5.5 update is a maintenance release with an important fix for a crash bug introduced in 2.5.4

IBrowse 2.5.5 Release Improvements

  • Updated Danish, Italian, Norwegian, Polish, Spanish, and Swedish catalog translations, by Niels Bache, Samir Hawamdeh, Kolbjørn Barmen, Mariusz Danilewicz, Javier de las Rivas and Pär Boberg respectively
  • Tweaked the installer to work around the broken Version command in A-EON’s Enhancer Software
  • OS4: Fixed truncated multipart form submission when any file upload elements were left blank (e.g. Gmail)
  • Fixed problems with the accept/reject from this server buttons not always working correctly in cookie action requesters
  • Added third-party and first-party cookie types to the information shown in cookie action requesters
  • Added AmigaOS 3.2 detection
  • Third-party cookies are now detected and can be blocked using the security and/or URL prefs settings
  • Resumed downloads in the download manager didn’t show the size, but now show the total expected complete size
  • Fixed corruption of auto resumed incomplete HTTP gzip encoded downloaded files
  • Fixed objects causing crashes, due to the previous changes in the ‘iframe’ code
  • Improved parsing speed of huge inline JavaScript sections
  • Don’t bother to copy inline JavaScript into a buffer, if JavaScript is disabled, improving performance
  • Tweaked puddle size of one of the main memory pools, to improve performance

IBrowse 2.5.5 is now available for download (OS4 users may use AmiUpdate instead). IBrowse is one of the longest surviving web browsers still in development. It doesn’t need CSS support to be useful. There are many Amiga-related sites that are HTML only, including Amitopia2 which I am still making. It is taken a much longer time than planned.

What sites do you browse with your Amiga?
