w00t! can you tell i am excited? well, pick it up here. get the source here (xcode needed)
It seems to be coming along nicely. I'm even writing this reply in it, so you are definitely getting somewhere
About the source tree, you may want to rearrange things so that others can build it. All the .png files are hard-coded to /Volumes/TOM'S USB/tominated browser/ and so they're missing from the .zip, as is the PolishedWindow stuff hiding in your ../downloads/TunesWindow
I'm not entirely sure what it is, but it's pretty snappy!
true, i'll fix that up now
EDIT: the source with the images is up now
What do you use as your rendering engine, WebKit, Gecko?
it uses webkit. gecko is too slow for my liking
It looks very nice and works weel as far as I can see. The only real issue is that I think you need to contrast you buttons a bit more. It is hard to tell at a glance what each one does.
Great work, can't wait to see the next few versions.
thanks for all your feedback. i am glad you like it
it's nice to have a bare bones browser, it's a pretty quick little renderer. and i like the big progress bar at the top.
what direction are you thinking of going with it? more features, but slower or faster with less features? i recommend the latter.
i am going to try and keep it speedy, but with a few cool features, maybe even things like del.icio.us intergration
Nice work Tominated...nice barebones browser, and quite fast as well. Looking forward to seeing how this browser progresses.
Fast as f***! Seriously that is fast but personally I don't like the top heavy grey look to the windows. Great effort, good luck.
I really love that. With more features, I might switch to this permanently if you can keep up the speed.
BTW, I remember the first working version, with the big T...
I'd like to try this out, but the link isn't working.
ya, me too. linky no worky
Doing some poking around, I found it here. I'm downloading now...
Well, that didn't work so well. It downloads a DMG file that it reports as unrecognizable. Hmm. I guess we'll have to wait for the issue with the original link to get fixed.
Oh its so very fast! It actually feels faster than *any* other browser I have used. Ever. Congrats. I'd use this regularly if you got the features of Safari, but kept the speed. Oh, and a better skin.
Downloaded, unzipped, launched...
... no window.
I'd probably try using it a bit more but I'm a junkie for Tabbed browsing, and I cannot function without Command-[ for back and Command-] for forward. Give me those shortcuts and I might be able to get beyond the no tabs issue.
sorry it didn't work for a while. i was stupid and pointed macupdate to the zip file on the web server that i use, now most my bandwidth is gone, it took a while to uplad it back on to macupdate
EDIT: Idea! - i should put a new window option in the file/window menu!
That would be a great idea!
i'll find out how to do that now!
