Currently the best web browser for A1200 030@50/128MB/OS3.1?

I understood that IBrowse isn't available at the moment? What would be my best bet for occasional (graphical) surfing?

*edit*
Elinks would be coool also, should it be available for Amiga OS 3.1?

With your setup:

With graphics card:
Origin Web Browser 68k version
NetSurf 68k version

Without graphics card:
Ibrowse (It is worth buying a secondhand key as it is faster than Aweb)
Aweb (it is free!)

Thats it!

PS: We have no Elinks port on the Amiga.

So where can you actually download OWB for 3.x? I can only find OS 4 binaries.

I uploaded OWB 1.6 68k to The Zone for you to play with. Remember it requires a GFX card!

Thanks gulliver, unfortunately I don't have any gfx-card (yet) Would Graffiti qualify? Or do I need to "towerize" my Miggy?

Does the latest AWeb APL Lite for 68000 (found on Aminet) support codesets.library? Any other OS 3.x browsers that do?

@emuola

Graffiti wont work, you will probably need to towerise, unless you are good at hardware hacking!

Choices for you:

mediator pci busboard + pc gfx card
zorro busboard + gfx card
Blizzard PPC + BlizzardVision (Extremely over priced)

Good Luck!

Ok, thanks for the info I don't think I'll be upgrading my Miggy with a "real" graphics board just for browsing. I'll stick to some more simple solutions. Ftp works anway, so I probably use somethig like Lynx. I'm really *no* good at hardware hacking
