It seems Microsoft has not been updating the Windows rendering engine since MSIE7 - so that is what you're stuck with in this microbrowser, even if you have MSIE 8 or 9 installed on your system.

Navigate on enter, clear URL on click and maximize were rather painless to add, so I've made an update to the little thing.
I'm aware that the URL isn't always the URL of the main page you are on - unfortunately this is a limitation of the way I've built this. It gets confused when external scripts/URLs are loaded in a "navigation" way.

Note that I won't be putting more time in this, considering the engine is old and poorly supported and can't easily be changed unless I actually embed a complete and independent HTML rendering engine myself (which is quite opposite the point of this thing ;P)

The MicroBrowser is light & works well. Great for quickie usage--I plan to keep it installed & use it often. Thanks for creating it, Moonchild. Keep up the good work... :thumbup: :clap:

Updated it to a slightly newer version, 1.0.1, since it seems to be semi popular anyway XD

Updated to 1.0.2 to fix an "oops" with the new "about" button stealing enter from the Go button, and leaving a test flag on the browser element that should have been off to keep maximum compatibility with the system it runs on.

Updated to 1.0.3 for a better rendering engine ;)

Note that the start page may not show up properly the first time you start it. If the page does not have rounded corners, the incorrect engine is used, and you should exit and restart the microbrowser.
This is caused by the inability to change rendering mode when the program is already running, and I can't be bothered right now to build in a detections/self-restart routine at the moment.

Also, new location to get it: ftp://archive:get@ftp.palemoon.org/misc ... rowser.exe

There's no real way I can spend more time on this, since it is just "for shits & giggles" XD

If people would like to have a poke at it, I can release it as Open Source, though!
Anyone interested?

Just downloaded Microbrowser to see how it looks like, and it was surprisingly a pleasure to go on 1 or 2 websites with it. Kinda unexpected. x)

Ublock origin is blocking that link.(malware domains.).
Just thought i would point that out.

I'm not even using ge.tt anymore so it'd be broken. See also the later post above re: new file location.
Also, ge.tt is a generic file hoster (like mega etc.); if ublock origin blocks it, then it's being as bad as some overzealous AV suites.

Thanks, of course I will... If and when I will find a time to make them :oops:
Huge delay of this response should say a lot about how soon is it likely to happen )

Feature I wanted (and still want...) to add: copying URLs from microb
(microb wipes it when user clicks on URL text field, most obvious fix is to select its entire contents instead)
