Just FYI.

joerg has quit the OWB bugtracker on os4depot so it's probably pointless to report any further bugs there unless someone else picks up the torch.

I could only speculate so I'll refrain to comment on that.

Apparently OWB development (the main branch) stalled around six months ago. As such there is little point in further development of the Amiga port as it is.

Would still be nice with a download manager etc, while we wait for the ff port.

Whatever this means - I'm still thankful for your and Joergs port of OWB and don't regret any cent I donated. OWB is still THE browser for me and I use it intensely every day.

Joerg says many time that he want add any functionality to OWB since it was only something to use until TimberWolf was finished...

I'm also very thankfull for this piece of work. Porting OWB on AmigaOS 4.x was a huge (very huge) leap forward to help many users going on using their Amiga every day and overall stay on Amiga.

I gave money to Jeorg and will not regret it since he accomplished a very hard work (even if there were always people complaining about this or that).

I love webkit and love the way it's been integrated in OWB and even more how it has been ported to AmigaOS.

Once again, thanks a lot Joerg ! I hope you will work on another project which will give you a lot of satisfaction.

By the way, if any of you can read French, I wrote an "how to" to help using OWB at the maximum of its possibilties

Sorry to hear its not worked on anymore. I can only say thanks to Joerg for all the owb versions until today. I hope we get some usable version of firefox later on. Porting Fab version of OWB would be nice as it has some stuff our version lacks.

Thanks Joerg

Not completely true, OWB can be updated from WebKit directly, so you don't necessary need the Sand-Labs updates ..

Aniway this is not a good news :-/

I would have thought it was obvious. Any developer gets worn down by the constant complaining, "why don't you do this" and "why don't you do what someone else did". After a while it just isn't worth the effort and aggro to do all that work for for nothing.

I'm wherry disappointed, I donated money in the hope it did motivate him.

When he refused to implement stuff like download manager, etc, I tried to pickup where he left off, it was nearly impossible for me.

The question is way did this project get so much attention of members of this forum and other forums feat like it was not important.

My conclusion is that: if OWB is going to be continued it has be done by some that:

a) Has the time.
b) Has the patients to get it compiling.
c) Has the skills that's needed,
d) Has the interest in implement stuff that is needed.
e) has to be able to deal whit demands and idiotic comment whit out being effected.

That's sad news indeed. For me personally, OWB was _the_ decisive factor that made me buy a SAM: AmigaOS4 alone would have never been compelling enough to justify the purchase. Once I heard there's a usable browser that supports modern-ish web standards, I jumped in.

Like many others, I donated several times to keep the development going. And although I'm not happy about Joerg's decision, I don't regret, it was money well spent.

It would be nice to hear from Joerg what chance there is for someone (not me, though ) to take over the development.

Joerg say many times that he is not in interest to make OWB as complete web-browser. It was just our hope that he will, but as he say, the main decision for the work was "have something more or less usable, while there is not FF". Still, there is no usable FF, but OWB as it can be used up to these times. But will be good if someone brave enough will get the flagship and add more features to it.
