Questions, Comments, Requests, etc. I shall respond to them.
Actually, I wondered, is it okay to modify your Borealis Navigator, if you remove the trademarks and don't distribute the branding?

I like the look of your browser, but I would like to see all proprietary parts removed. If possible,

I mean is it possible to do that? Just curious, it looks exciting though. :)

I know its not released, but I am more then sure it will be very, lightweight indeed. :)

You will have to wait for it to be released to do anything with any covered code.

Alright, that's fair, I look forward to seeing this masterpiece of yours. :)

Good news! So when do you hope to be releasing Borealis Navigator?

"When it's done" was also the motto of Duke Nukem Forever's project manager George Broussard.

Yeah but it isn't gonna be a disappointment if you are expecting exactly what it is intended to be.

The same could be said for Duke Nukem Forever ;-)

Off-topic:
Duke Nukem Forever was a disaster in slow motion - they decided to change the game engine from the Quake one to the Unreal one after around 2-3 years of development, thereby throwing away all of that code (sound familiar?), and eventually ended up forgotten over time. Finally the game was finished by another studio - and it was complete shit compared to its 1996 predecessor. In fact it bore little resemblance to the E3 trailers that had been released a couple of times in the beginning.
@Tobin - not saying it's a disappointment (Hell no!), but I just wish it would get to an official binary download and an addons page (given I've made several of mine work with it).

{offtopic blurb about DNF}
You clearly missed my point :)
DNF when finally released was exactly as it was intended (by the studio releasing it). So if that's what people expected, then there was no issue! People just didn't expect what they got.

Off-topic:
That's the thing - the studio releasing it was not the one that originally worked on it, and it looks as though they had never played the original given how much more inferior and dumbed down for console the final product was. 3D Realms gave up on it and outsourced it to Gearbox Software. People expected it to build upon the 1996 hit, instead they tried to make it a copy of a generic console shooter and got rid of all the zany weapons of the original, limiting the player to only 2 at a time (again, sounds extremely familiar, doesn't it?). Expectations had been built up over the years with the teaser trailers during E3 2001 - and after keeping it secret, the final release was a huge letdown given that a new generation of gamers had already grown up that didn't know anything about the franchise anyway.

Completely irrelevant.
