We'll have to wait and see. Right now I'm focused on bringing ABiv0 up to the same level as 64-bit core build.

amifox is limited in any case compared to browservice

regarding bounty there is nothing known, there was a question here on the forum about it and many users were in favour of opening it, i think those who would like to upgrade odyssey or port another software should step in, amifox and browservice are the only alternatives at the moment

@Amiwell79 - browserservice is a better service to navigate and have access to all sites then the rendering of pages is much faster with amifox i found problems on some web portals and also with rendering

OK, thank you very much for the feedback.

@AMIGASYSTEM - Yes OK, but browservice does not work on native AROS or AROS VM!

Browserservice runs the chrome engine in the background.

If chrome already runs natively on AROS then ask yourself why on earth would someone need to have a (bounty for a) new browser for AROS ? Smile

fwiw: it is the whole point of such a proxy service: to allow old operating systems to access the web in a (more) secure and safe way because the original operating system / original hardware isn't capable of accessing the internet or provide certain safety features at all.

@Amiwell79:
Is there a particular reason you prefer to use browserservice instead of AmiFox (as they basically do the same thing) ?

If I understand correctly browservice can only run on Linux-hosted AROS,

No. It can but that is pure coincidental.

so for Native AROS or AROS on a virtual machine it cannot be used Sad

It is a proxy, just as AmiFox is. You run it on a (small) standalone server though it is possible to also run it on a host such as Linux and/or Windows.

So, in case of running AROS in a VM you can opt for
- running the proxy service on your host platform
- run another VM next to AROS that has a small dedicated server that runs the proxy service.
- have a(nother) dedicated computer that runs the proxy service

yes I know the website and as far as I understand about odyssey and that it might be possible to update it so this could be the topic of the bounty

@Amiwell79 - excluding the browser for morphos and given that in this forum there is favorable feedback on creating or updating odyssey what should be done to open the bounty


Perhaps creating a new bounty on https://power2people.org/projects/overview/ and start donating to it may be a good starting point. That is if this web site is still active. Power2people
