Amiga Events : AWeb 3.5.10 special update for AmigaOS 4.1
Posted by broadblues on 2012/5/20 18:04:03 (987 reads) News by the same author
Amiga Events

After some considerable time, I finally tracked down and fixed the "last" of some nasty bugs that were intrduced / revealed by the update of AmigaOS to version 4.1



This release makes those fixes available.

Why AWeb in this day and age of OWB and Timeberwolf? Well AWeb is fast, and if you don't need CSS then it leaves any other Amiga browser standing. This makes it particularly suitable for reading local documentation in html format etc.

If you're a webdesigner it can be useful for seeing how your pages degrade in the absense of CSS, you can see very quickly id your page structure is sane, and likely to be navigable but non visual user agents.

AWeb also has some powerful and under used features in it's ARexx interface. It can call scripts from local pages and thus build quite sophistcated dynamic applications. IIRC a magazine coverdisk used to use this feature to great effect.

(this does not work pages on or from the web for the obvious security reasons)

Excellent!
OK, it doesn't render most webpages these days (including, ironically, this one)....

... but boy is it fast.

Plus I'd wager it's the best way to browse the web on OS 4 classic....

A good browser as you say to read html docs, where the CSS and other visual effects aren't neccesary.
Thank you, for your work.
