# First Release

I'm happy to announce that today we have a web browser for AmigaOS4 that
supports almost all modern web technologies. Since it's a project in an early
state I'll first list a few things that doesn't work just yet..
Don't expect things like Toolbars and such to be present in the browser. But I
assure you that we are working on this. But I wanted to release at least
something for Christmas and also to get some feedback from you all.

ok.. let's go:

# Cookies: sometimes and on some sites, login is impossible.
# Crashes: There are some sites that causes a crash and you could get a crash on
exit. But don't send me crash logs.. the functions that crashes are known..
# Chars: Some international characters like some Italian ones are not
printable.. :(
I can provide a special version for this, but it is better to wait for a new
release where this is fixed
# Sites Display: 99% of sites works correctly.. but you could find some sites
that doesn't render well. On some sites you could have problems with window
# Chinese fonts are not rendered (I think.. or I haven't found a right ttf
# Don't expect Flash/Movie plugins (Yet)
# Sometimes the browser could send a bad request to the web server. Go back and
click the link again
# Copy/Paste of text doesn't work at the moment
# There isn't a scroll bar yet
# File transfers
# And probably a few more minor things

# IT IS FREE.. ;)
# Javascript should work on basically all sites
# CSS and all web technologies works perfectly
# True Type fonts are used to display fonts (see notes on how it work)
# SSL works (see notes)
# It's (quite) fast even on an A1200 (well.. don't expect the same speed as on
an A1..)
# It's updated daily by the OWB developers (and me..)

Copy the fc-cache file in the C/ directory to your C: directory (even if it's
not needed) and run it
Copy the files in the FONTS/ directory into your FONTS: directory
Copy the file in S/ directory into your S: directory
Mount the RANDOM device from SYS:Storage/DosDrivers (or copy it into DEVS:)

To launch OWB just click on its icon or run from a shell with this syntax:

owb URL

The first time you run it, it will search the FONTS:_TrueType directory to
see what ttf fonts are available and it will create some cache files, so you
might have to wait a few seconds depending on how many files you have in that
directory. If you run fc-cache first then the owb launch will be faster.

To navigate back and forward use:
ALT -> to go forward
ALT <- to go back

Thanks to all the guys that are working/testing it.
Thanks Mason and Kens for the icons
It's Christmas.. remember me :)

Thank you and Merry Christmas!
