Yes I remember the first Andrea's release altrought at that time I didn't have OS4 at home, but you talking about a 3 years old release, personally after 3 years I would expect mutch more than tabs support ...
OWB still doesn't support tabs and still has no GUI at all, let alone any of the other features you want, but since it's not a browser for computers but for CE devices such features are not required. It's using a newer version of WebKit, but it hardly has more own features now (the cookie support is much better and a few other things improved, for example it supports JavaScript alerts and select popups now which wasn't the case 3 years ago yet).

Implementing a complete computer web browser around OWB still doesn't make any sense at all, and of course that never was the goal of the AmigaOS 4.x port, no matter how hard you try to keep ignoring such facts. Even if I'd still have working AmigaOS 4.x hardware I never would have wasted my time doing something as stupid as that. If you want a complete web browser you have to use one instead of something like OWB, for example Timberwolf.
