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.

Awesome, tabbed browsing on Amiga ;) .


Wasn't the Amiga the first platform with tabbed browsing?
I remember being told that a while back. Some Amiga browser had it, then Opera then everyone else.

Yeah, IBrowse browser on Amiga was the first one browser I know with tabbed browsing support ;) It was cool to have this featere, very comfortable. IBrowse 2 was good browser, PNG alpha support, resume downloads support, some features are still not available in common browsers. CSS was planned in IBrowse 3 which was never released. So OWB for MorphOS and AmigaOS 4 is the best browser application now, OWB / WebKit core rulez and other features like GUI interface, resume downloads, etc. is added and improved very often. Author of MorphOS version: Fabien Coeurjoly (fab) and AmigaOS 4 version: Jörg Strohmayer.
