    I was watching a .Mac how to video on Apple's page and they talked about Safari and IE and Netscape. While doing a demonstration of how to access your .Mac info on the web they used a very odd looking web browser. I took a snapshot, here: http://www.homepage.mac.com/ibook238/.Pictures/dotmac_browser.jpg
    maybe this is a browser I don't know about, you take a look.

    Any ideas?

    ? No idea....
    Can't imagine Apple making another browser.... Safari isn't perfect, yet.
    And making one for Windows... no way.

    I wonder how long ago the demonstation was made. Maybe it was a much earlier version of Safari.

    looks like a proprietary browser for apple demonstrations.

    It can't be--if you notice the webpage, wasn't that from the other month when Apple was trying to get people to re-subscribe to .Mac?

    Something else comes to mind. There was a programming article somewhere showing how simple it is to "make your own browser" using Apple's frameworks. In a few programming steps, it showed how to make a functional but crude-looking web browser. Maybe this was a quick-and-dirty web browser made using that framework, just for the purpose of making the .Mac demo.

    they could have been doing a tech demo of how easy it is to include webcore and used the "no lines of code browser" trick. it depends on how old the shot is. can you give us a date on the movie LimeiBook?

    i remember seeing an AppleScript Studio app once that was a no frills browser. i think it used a combo of Cocoa GUI and shell or perl or some other Terminal scripts. dont remember what it looked like though. this looks more like an in-house browser for testing and so on.

    At the WWDC they showed how to make a web browser very similar to that. It appeared to be a very functinal browser.

    I'm pretty sure that this is just an example of webcore neato-ness, like others have mentioned. I highly doubt that it's an über-l33t h4x0r browser that us lu53r scr1ptk1dd135 aren't allowed to play with.

    I think you can do it now in Jaguar with Xcode (or Project Builder). But I think you also need Safari 1.0 installed.

    You have to download the WebKit framework, if I'm not mistaken.

    Yeah well this has to be pretty recent, definetly after Safari 1.0, I know this because the game "Marble Blast" that is a vavliable through .Mac is fairly new. I know because I donwloaded it :)

    Well the browser looks pretty nice, I think Safari is better...:D

    It's definitely a quick Project Builder/XCode browser. That would take approximately 2 minutes to create. My friend showed me when he got back from WWDC.
