Origyn Web Browser is a web browser designed for CE devices such as mobile phones, portable media players, Set Top Boxes and TV decoders, and any other consumer electronic product (GPS, home-gateways, Web-radios, PVR, DVD recorders, wireless devices etc.)
AROS port of Origyn Web Browser is a Zune-based application created by Stanislaw Szymczyk as one of the requirements of "Port an Open Source Browser To AROS" bounty. It's using OWB encapsulated in a Zune class as a rendering engine.
The AROS port extends default OWB in numerous ways, most important are:
When running OWB from a Shell you can specify an URL to open in argument.
During the first run OWB is generating a font cache. This process may take some time, but it's done only once. Generated cache is stored in fonts/cache directory.
To manage tabs use context menu (right mouse button) in the tabs section.
To download a file use link context menu (right mouse button) and choose "Download Linked File".
To access files located on disk use paths in the following form: file:///System:S/Startup-Sequence
To bookmark a tab use tab's context menu.
Bookmark menu is present in the URL string input context menu.
To open a link in a background tab use middle mouse button.
The following keyboard shortcuts are implemented:
Bookmarks, opens the bookmark manager.
Find, search for text inside the current page.
Download, opens the download manager which shows the status of downloads and a allows you to cancel downloads and clear completed downloads.
Preferences, allows you to configure various parts of OWB.
