IBrowse 2.4 is it dead
 
I was woundering if there going to be any new updates cos you can't even purchase it anymore.

I have the demo version of it and want to get a key for it so I have the full version but it looks like that not going to happen..:(

Rebel-CD32 18 June 2012 00:44

Yeah, unfortunately it's never going to happen. You will need to find someone who owns a registered copy and buy their key off them.

Retrofan 18 June 2012 01:55

Yes, yes. Btw, did you get it working?

Bamiga2002 18 June 2012 07:13

Yes you can find the keyfile for it but I'd buy it if it was only possible.

Rebel-CD32 18 June 2012 07:52

I'd still buy it if I could, too. I still use it and think it's a great program, even if it's a little dated now.

It won't help you, but just for info: the (only) last legal way to obtain IBrowse 2.4 is purchasing AmigaOS4.1. But I must admit I don't know whether this is a special version or not.

I do have os4.1. Do I have the key there?

Yes thanks it working now.:D

Oh just wondering are all the browsers the same for the Amiga,bits of the theme missing from the website..like if you browse to eab in Ibrowse it looks different...??

Bamiga2002 21 June 2012 07:26

IBrowse is good but so outdated that many sites fail to display. Missing CSS-support etc.

Retrofan 05 April 2014 01:52

I've taked this thread to post this that I've read right now on the IBrowse page: http://www.ibrowse-dev.net/news.php?id=1393094281


22 Feb 2014 AmiSSL 3.6 and IBrowse 2.4 HTTPS vulnerabilities
Harry Sintonen has released an advisory document detailing some flaws and vulnerabilities in AmiSSL 3.6, used by IBrowse to support secure connections, and IBrowse 2.4's HTTPS implementation.

We advise that you should disable "SSLv2 support" on the "Security" page of the IBrowse preferences. And also in that section, on the "Ciphers" page, ensure that DES, 3DES (Encryption), MD5 (MAC) and Export (Cipher grade) are all disabled. These are enabled by default in IBrowse 2.4.

Additionally, you may wish to enter the following command in a shell: "setenv save AmiSSL/SSL_CLIENT_VERSION ssl3" - this will disable SSL 2.0 globally in AmiSSL itself so will get applied to all other applications using AmiSSL (not just IBrowse).

The IBrowse Development Team thank Harry for bringing these issues to our attention, and we will make any required fixes and HTTPS improvements for IBrowse 2.5. Hopefully, a new version of the now open-source AmiSSL will be released at some point, updated to use the very latest version of OpenSSL.

EDIT: YES, that means they are alive (that's also why they keep their web) and they are thinking in IBrowse 2.5.
Just IMHO actually I believe the 85% of people must be using the Googled key, but there is only one AFAIK, and IBrowse is the best browser by far, so I would be very glad -and I believe the most of us- to buy a new key as far as it would be updated somehow. To avoid pirate keys they only should have to change the program so it woudn't work with the Jess Tikkulator key.

Devlin 06 April 2014 03:59

Out of curiousity - I own a boxed version of IBrowse - is the key provided with that the sort that would be compatible with the latest current version?
Here's a pic of what I got..

there's four install disks for IBrowse 1.22, two for IBrowse2 and one each for Net&Web v2 and TermiteTCP.

There was a serial code for upgrades on the Hisoft site, but the url leads nowhere.

I would use the key on Google till they make a move. We can not wait a life for them, and we don't know if they will ever release IBrowse 2.5 after so many years.

tolkien 06 April 2014 09:43

Will be nice to have an update but I dont know what to think. Many years since the last move.

Michael 02 December 2014 19:24

Maybe the IBrowse2.5/beta that is surfacing in places will finally make it for XMAS this year ?

tolkien 02 December 2014 22:10

What? More info please!

ancalimon 03 December 2014 00:16

BTW, amigaworld works great with IBowse. Maybe there could be a special cutdown version of eab that's compatible with IBrowse?

I'm using iBrowse 2.4 when posting here on EAB right now, works fine.

It works fine.. But does it look good? :P

modrobert 03 December 2014 04:43

Yes, in its own way with classic CRT shine and huge lowres font. ;)

EDIT:

I did notice now that you can change the default style "EAB3 skin" to "Mobile skin" by adding &styleid=4 to the URL which gets stored in a cookie, forum threads load a lot faster on the Amiga after that.

It looks good with AmiKit Real.
