This reminds me of the issue in the old days that people used to say that gamers killed the Amiga because they didn't upgrade their Amigas like their PC brethren did.

-edit-
And I sort of agree with that sentiment =).

My question is.---

Really is so hard to make a browser as iBrowse can view flash, and some other things?
You know becouse thats the big problem in Ibrowse and AWEB..
I  dont uderstand how projects like Mozilla firefox, are a Free software, and projects like Ibrowse or AWEB (Now are opened) was  a  comercial products but not meet the expectations and minimum requirements..
Anyway, i know the times are changing, but its very cool Browse the Web with your Amiga Classic, with your Classic OS.. you know..only you and your very  classic Amiga!..
Its like take a ride in your Vintage Classic Car!!!..YEAH!!

Here's a suggestion. I was thinking about doing this myself but I feel lacking in urgency since the only amiga browser I use here is OWB. So, why not learn PHP and write a proxy script that parses whatever page you requested, reformats it to remove all the CSS related guff, converting it (where necessary) to some tables based view and redirect all amiga.org referencing links to pass back through the proxy. Once it's working satisfactorily, ask the new owners nicely if they can make it run on a sub domain. The only tricky bits I can see is session management and the fact it would increase server load when it's used. However that shouldn't be a problem since a tiny percentage of users would actually use it.

@nicholas

Nope, though I'd be happy to put it on a subdomain here if the owners agree.

Still needs a fair bit of work though, but you can log in and post. Who would have thought how much work is involved in degrading perfectly good CSS / XHTML into that chicken soup that is HTML4? You know, I actually forgot all about the tag :lol:

Hi,

@most real amiga users,

" most real Amiga users having moved to Mac years ago"

Thats funny I use a real computer that plays great games, and I am a PC.

Lets see a Mac can write pages of script, and do data basing, and can do spread sheets, and can chew up a lot of money on software, and is used by people who really don't want to know much about computers. Boy did Jobs do a job on you.

I have no idea what your talking about, so here is a doggy with a small pancake on his head.

MorphOS is a MAC done a little better

It was only a joke, it's not actually there.

I think it's great you're doing this, I know I'd be on the amiga side more if I could use a lighter browser than netsurf or owb.
