Amiga & AROS "The Timberwolf team is proud to announce the immediate availability of the first beta version of Timberwolf 4.0.1. Timberwolf is an AmigaOS web browser based on Firefox/Mozilla technology. This technology is more than just a browser, it is an enabling technology, bringing powerful tools such as html5, WebM, JavaScript, XUL, and more to AmigaOS 4.x. These are the building blocks for other applications as well, such as the email client 'Thunderbird' or the media center 'Songbird'. This first beta release includes almost the full functionality of the browser, allowing style-sheet enabled web browsing, secure connections, use of Firefox add-on and more."

Where's my 68K version?!?!

Yeah, yeah, I know old tech, blah blah, etc. Would love to have a PPC Amiga capable of running AmigaOS4 and finally have an Awesome OS that can browse decently ( I have an A4000 running OS3.9, but all the browsers are either buggy as crap (AWEB) or missing a ton of modern features (IBrowse) or is a pain to get working at all (Netsurf 68k)).

The OS is still snappy in a lot of areas where my 2.5GHZ quad core CPU running any modern desktop OS (Windows 7 and KDE4 or Gnome-Shell) isn't. Even though I don't have an accelerator (still 25Mhz 68040) and a Radeon using RAM of it for the system. With the Radeon OS3.9 just flies.

Wish someone would actually create new accelerator boards that didn't cost the same as me building a brand new i7.
