R.I.P. S.I.S – Long live Webber

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
  • Bookmarks
  • 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.
Take a look for yourselves at:  https://speccie.uk/software/webber/
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… :-)

WOzFest 17 Oct/QFest 17 Announcement

From the europlus zone blog:

I’m very happy to announce the date for the next WOzFest: WOzFest 17 Oct will be held on Saturday 17 October 2020, starting at midday Sydney time (UTC+11:00). An easy date to remember! And Steve in Brisbane has confirmed QFest 17 will be held at the same time – double the Apple ][ goodness!

The theme for WOzFest 17 Oct is, as it was for WOzFest SWEET16, “Community” – having supportive communities is important at the best of times, but especially so at the moment, so I’ve decided to extend the theme to cover WOzFest 17 Oct. The camaraderie involved in events like WOzFest certainly help me feel lucky in these trying times. So come and join my community for a few hours, no matter where you are in the world.

As per recent WOzFests, WOzFest 17 Oct will be streamed on Twitch via WOzFest TV for the whole duration. I’ll be aiming to do some productive work to stream, and will have some Skype calls as well.

Further details on the announcement post, and updates will be posted under the europlus zone’s WOzFest tag.
