Morphos The MorphOS version of the Origyn web browser has been bumped to version 1.3. It comes with a long list of improvements and bug fixes. The OWB browser is used on a multitude of platforms, but recently it has been gaining a lot of popularity on AmigaOS4 and MorphOS because it's a small, fast, and modern WebKit-based browser. Since I'm currently borrowing a Sam440ep Flex machine with AmigAOS 4.1 from ACube so I can review the machine and the operating system for OSNews, I have access to OWB on Amiga and Amiga-like platforms, so read on for a few screenshots and some notes. Update: As commenters rightfully pointed out, I wasn't using the latest OWB version. The latest one does have tabbed browsing, as well as an updated interface. Check inside for a new screenshot.

OWB 1.3 for MorphOS

Thanks! True, OWB for MorphOS / AmigaOS 4 rulez! And OWB has much better ACID3 result (99 and 100/100) than Internet Explorer 8 (20) Mozilla Firefox 3 (71), Safari 3.2.1 (75), Opera 9.63 (85), Konqueror 4.20 (85). Only new betas Opera 10 or Safari 4 can compete.

OWB 1.3 for MorphOS (or OWB 3.13 for AmigaOS 4) supports tabbed browsing.

OWB 1.3 for MorphOS has much better user interface (MUI 4) and more features than OWB for AmigaOS 4 you are testing - I tested both versions, I have AmigaOS 4.1 and MorphOS 2.2 on my Pegasos II G4 machine. I hope you will have MorphOS 2 powered machine soon ;) MorphOS rulez ;)
