For SnG: Microbrowser

Postby Moonchild » Tue Feb 07, 2012 8:47 am

For shits and giggles a proof-of-concept "microbrowser" thrown together in very little time.

one single executable of 652 kB, save and run

Very light and it works, but we cannot navigate when pressing enter. Click click go to get to DuckDuckGo.

Based on the same principle XD
The Neopets browser is pretty much dead though, considering Neopets is a joke anymore

Is it open source? If I do a little work could I redistribute it (for free of course)? :?:

No, it's not open source.
Also, you'd need to buy the RAB (Rapid Application Builder) package I used to be able to compile the application.

Actually might start using this for the smaller tasks, like searches and research instead of bringing out these hulks Lol
Great job!!! :thumbup:

WOW! :clap:

Just discovered this & already love it. My main browser is a palemoon x64 FULL of very usefull and carefully selected addons, but as we all know that sometimes means it is using 1.5 GB of ram....
So this micro browser is IDEAL for quick html and page viewing, to copy info, bla, bla.

My wishes:
1- go to site on enter.
2- make maximize window button work
3- some way to save preferences, aka, change home page, etc AND make them stiky on close.
4- tabs (with ctrl+clik) or capabilty to use win7 taskbar features

4 is NOT to come at speed memmory use expense... if not leave it.

Just wishes. Even as it is of now I am adopting it as one of my preffered tools. Let's see how it ages and wears out :thumbup:
