IBrowse 2.5.5 is now available for download (OS4 users may use AmiUpdate
instead). This is a maintenance release with an important fix for a crash
bug introduced in 2.5.4, along with performance improvements, the addition
of third-party cookie blocking and a few other fixes. The full list of
changes follows:

- Updated Danish, Italian, Norwegian, Polish, Spanish and Swedish catalog
translations, by Niels Bache, Samir Hawamdeh, Kolbjørn Barmen,
Mariusz Danilewicz, Javier de las Rivas and Pär Boberg respectively
- Tweaked the installer to work around the broken Version command in
A-EON's Enhancer Software
- OS4: Fixed truncated multipart form submission, when any file upload
elements were left blank (e.g. Gmail)
- Fixed problems with the accept/reject from this server buttons not
always working correctly in cookie action requesters
- Added third-party and first-party cookie types to the information shown
in cookie action requesters
- Added AmigaOS 3.2 detection
- Third-party cookies now detected and can be blocked using the security
and/or URL prefs settings
- Resumed downloads in the download manager didn't show the size, but now
show the total expected complete size
- Fixed corruption of auto resumed incomplete HTTP gzip encoded
downloaded files
- Fixed <embed> objects causing crashes, due to the previous changes in
the <iframe> code
- Improved parsing speed of huge inline JavaScript sections
- Don't bother to copy inline JavaScript into a buffer, if JavaScript is
disabled, improving performance
- Tweaked puddle size of one of the main memory pools, to improve
performance

This is the fifth free update for registered users of IBrowse 2.5.
IBrowse 2.1-2.4 and 1.x users may upgrade to IBrowse 2.5.5 via our store
at discounted rates.

Hi Oliver,

Thanks for all your efforts in keeping IBrowse "alive", but I rarely use it as I use Wayfarer
on MorphOS more than any other browser currently, and until IBrowse can offer somewhere near
those capabilities I doubt I will use it, but I will try to support your efforts whether or not
I use IBrowse as it is worth seeing how far you can take it . . . into the future!

It loads up really fast on MorphOS which is great, but it's quite a lightweight browser in modern
terms as to its capabilities, but it would be nice to have close buttons on each tab, and
webpage icons on each tab and bookmark would also be a great addition - if that's possible?

I really hope v3 of IBrowse materialises at some point, but it's a difficult project to realise
with current internet technology changing at such regular instances.

Regards to all other IBrowse users around the world that have access to these group messages.

kindest regards

Neil Pearson
