OWB - Origyn Web Browser
Michael Grunditz
Monday 18th September 2023, 7:45pm

This was going to be general chat meeting, but after an announcement earlier in the day by Michael Grunditz that he had released a new beta of OWB (Origyn Web Browser), he generously volunteered to give us a demo.

OWB is based on Webkit v1 so has much better javascript support than NetSurf, although not as good as Iris which uses Webkit v2. However it is much faster than Iris, so offers a good intermediate step, particularly on slower machines.

Chris Hall also gave us a quick look at the really tiny new computer from RISCOSbits the PiRO Qube.
