Webber is a powerful web browser for the IIgs, that lets you surf the web and download files. Webber requires Marinetti to be installed.
Webber is the successor to the now discontinued SIS. It uses the same interface as SIS, but there the similarity ends. Unlike SIS, Webber is a stand-alone application, compatible with System 6.0.1 through 6.0.4, and can download any web page that is accessible from an http:// connection. It does not handle https:// secure connections, scripts, or style sheets.
Check out what Webber can do for you:
- View web pages
- Send the results of interactive Forms
- Download linked files
- Load and display HTML files from disk
- Keeps up to 256 Cached pages in a navigation Stack
- Editable History list
- Keep & View optional transcript Logs
- Supports Proxy connections
- Supports password protected web pages
- Print pages
Originally intended to be released for KFest as an example of what you can now do with the updated HTMLTool, for a number of reasons, it just was not ready to be released then. I thererfore spent a great deal more time with it, and it has now been expanded into a full featured web browser, which I hope will be a worthy successor to Geoff’s S.I.S.
Unlike S.I.S, Webber is a stand-alone application, and will run on Systems 6.0.1 through 6.0.4.
My thanks go to Chris Vavruska, and Antoine Vignau, for their extensive help in getting Webber into being. Just don’t tell Antoine about the mess Google makes of French accents… ?
