Re: Wayfarer Browser programmer interested in licencing to A-Eon for OS4.1

Cameron Kaiser is so right on what he says. Unfortunately, Internet is already broken.
And lets be honest, to have a good browser on AmigaOS 4 working fast, will need at least an X1000 and for sure an X5000, and of course multicores working in parallel for the many threads. I wouldn't expect that to work ok on a SAM 460cr or an A1222. And as Kas1e said, it will be slow, because of JS.

In my opinion, we should focus more on creating applications that move internet stuff to desktop, like watching video streams (i.e. aiostreams) or discover music and media (i.e. MediaVault). We should also keep updating applications that consumes streams, like AmigaAmp and Emotion.

For me, I am pretty happy with Odyssey so far. I can watch YouTube on 720p pretty fine, with the Emotion av libraries and Radeon va libraries, and I can visit most of the websites I care about. I can watch Twitch streams with aiostreams, and listen music while I develop something.

Sure, there are websites that seem broken on Odyssey. If we could update the WebKit to newer version, if not to newest, that would be awesome.

Again, in my opinion, Wayfarer licensing will not help, as much as I see it.
