@ALL
As I mentioned over at AW, while you won't notice much on light-weight websites (although I noticed on AW that it loads the entire page with all the avatars in the blink of an eye, instead of slowly loading them one by one like OWB) rendering on heavy pages is FASTER than OWB and scrolling is smoother (not perfect yet, there is room for improvement, but if this is an Alpha, well we are in for a treat!).

Point in case: http://www.ign.com

It doesn't work right in OWB, scrolling the page vertically is almost impossible, and the main graphical rolling menu (where you get the thumbnails at the bottom and bigger detailed pictures in the main part) is dead slow loading all the different featured items.
On Timberwolf is very fast, all fancy menus work fine (and fast!) and scrolling....smooth! (aside that after a while you get some redraw glitches, but still smooth scrolling on IGN.com on Amiga? never seen this before!)

If the final version will be faster, well, the myth of Amiga making things fly on weak HW will be re-inforced ten folds

It's very impressive how far they have managed to develop Timberwolf for AmigaOS4! Amazing stuff, really!

It's still an Alpha, but now we are getting somewhere, i would say.

Hello,

tested and run fine....

For an alpha, no DSI or crash, even with features not finished (open local files,...).

Some site work fine, some other like OWB and some verry slow because heavy site but this first Timberwolf alpha version work verry fine.... I'm impressed...

For sure with the redraw only one time for all time, timberwolf will be verry good on the Amiga

Good news. Pleasantly surprised how well it works given the Alpha status, graphical 'blacking out' glitch quite evident. No crashes.

Cool icon, reminds me of thundercats!

Look forward to Reaction GUI and Flash (of course) in future updates!

Tested a bit and it looks great, just a few little note:

When I start it (double clicking on its icon), it open me TW in a very small window at the top (at top left) of the screen

About window, but maybe also others windows doesn't redraw/show any text, but you can show them selecting them with the mouse ...

Apart some glitch is an awesome work, congratulation !!

Experience same glitch with tiny window but does open out into a larger window on it's own accord, guess this is down to GUI elements taking a long time to load.

Timberwolf played first html5 demo video I tried at www.html5video.org, albeit slowly and without sound.

There won't be a Reaction gui, the GUI itself is a part of the layout and "fixed". Mason has been working on an AmigaOS theme though to make it look like the real thing, we just didn't get that into this release.

@samo79

The little window in the beginning is the default application window that Mozilla opens. It then loads the browser chrome which goes into it, which also re-sizes the window.

The user interface is actually mostly XUL with javascript bindings.

I am writing this from a 2 GHz laptop, and I can say the same (although it has sound of course). Video playback here is pretty slow and choppy.

Try this one too:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_Buck_Bunny

The exerpt at bottom of the page plays quite good on my SamFlex (no perfecion of course), just out of curiosity OWB greets me with this instead:
"Sorry, your system does not appear to have any supported player software. Please download a player."
