Home Page Release Notes

Current Version: 1.0b14

WannaBe is a nice text-only Web browser that is currently being developed much more heavily than MacLynx, above. It renders URLs in underlined blue, and it works with Internet Config to spawn helper applications when necessary. It's still in the alpha stages of development right now, but it works very well. Version 1.0b14 adds/changes the following:

  • The changes from 1.0b13 are almost entirely internal. The one new feature is support for HTML div elements.

User Reviews

"If you have only ever used heavyweight browsers like Netscape and Explorer I recommend trying WannaBe . . . and give yourself a real treat! The speed of going back a page is done literally within the blink of an eye! This is the kind of response you could only dream of in a full graphical browser on whatever speed of connection. It's described as alpha software but this is only in recognition of the lack of features. In terms of stability, it's rock solid."
—Adrian Winnard

Also, if you have an older Mac, be sure to check out the "Classic" applications page for more options.

Finally, take a look at ALEMIA if you think you know that name of an application, but aren't quite sure.

Of Note . . .

No, I don't accept reviews anymore for these older applications. With the creation of this page in the Orchard's late 2005 redesign, I only accept reviews for currently-developed applications that work on Mac OS X (or later....whatever that might be!!).
