As promised I have contacted dbsoft on his forum to see if he is interested in continuing Basilisk. We shall see.
We have seen and it has (not unsurprisingly) fallen through. Between the offer I made being rejected, the alternative I offered being dismissed, and dbsoft basically wanting all Basilisk assets and rights as a free plaything with no guarantee he wouldn't be screwing users over the moment he got his hands on it, it was a no-go.
Not forgetting insisting that threatening to drag me to court to "test a theory" is perfectly normal and I was actually a fool thinking he'd ever admit to a temporary lapse in judgement in that respect, and showing a great reluctance to even supply the basic personal details needed to draw up the necessary paperwork, I've declined his efforts to take over Basilisk as a whole.
To make it clear to anyone reading this: I re-iterate once again, this involves an official and legal transfer of rights to branding, the domain and trademark. That requires a legal agreement and (to make sure whomever takes over the browser is actually invested in making it work and continuing and not an SEO quick sell cash grab, if nothing else) a token sum of money.
