Maybe we should look at the problem the other way round.

Maybe a really good browser would help level up the user base and consequently allow editors to sale many other softwares to this increased user base.

In other words : a really good browser could help bringing new people to OS 4.

I agree with almost everything, but the JS JIT is not necessary to have a functional browser, see Odyssey.
Speaking of which, people were really spoiled because WebKit happened to be big-endian compatible and Fab built a browser around it and you made a port. There is nobody to fix the JavaScriptCore interpreter after 3 years (at least I'm not aware of anybody who tried), and they think A-Eon will port them a brand new browser from scratch? Good luck with that.

Slowly it goes on... who knows maybe, one day, IBrowse will be, again, the Browser for all the Amiga systems and, honestly, I will be happy!

I don't follow your logic. Sure it's gotten harder. All that means is that it's less likely some one is going to do it for free in their spare time. And that means the paid route looks more & more like the only option.

The main question is how it would be maintained once the initial port was done. I'd suggest some kind of subscription. A modern web browser is so necessary for so many things these days, it's probably the one piece of software that a subscription might be seen as worth-while by a large part of the user base.

Probably better to do the initial port, see how it sells, and if enough people buy it THEN decide on a subscription level for further (perhaps annual) updates.


The LibreOffice port is unlikely to need frequent updates to stay useful, so perhaps A-Eon can look at a web browser port after they finish the LibreOffice port?

I wonder if anyone has looked at this:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/tenfourfox
https://github.com/classilla/tenfourfox

I don't have a PPC MAC, so I don't know how good it is but it appears that it is still being maintained and updated.
