Syllable, AtheOS The Syllable project has reached another long-time milestone. It was always planned to factor out the web rendering engine of its web browser, ABrowse, into a library with a native Syllable View widget on top, so it can be embedded into more applications than just a web browser. Kristian Van Der Vliet did just that: building on Arno Klenke's WebCore port, he updated that and then stepped up the modularisation by creating the WebView class. He rewrote the browser on top of that and named it Webster [screenshot]. The first alpha version is available in the project's applications downloads. The latest Syllable 0.6.6 development build is required to run it, as several bugs in the system were fixed for the new browser. The next development build will have Webster included. The source code is available on the development site.

What a great comment.

Silverberg's Internet Explorer team sized around 100 by 1996 (IE3), probably over 400 the next year (IE4) to reach 1000 by 1999 (IE5).

Comparing a full time money-backed team of 400 1997's achievement to a part time will-backed team of 1 2008's achievement... oh yeah, make so MUCH sense.

Congrats.
