WebCruiser (The Browser Not To Be)

Description: Circa 1997/8, Finale Development was working on a new browser, WebCruiser.  The features included such things as Moca (JVM), JAmi (JavaScript), and promised to be the greatest browser ever...  Then, they lost programmers...

This is a real screenshot from WebCruiser beta 3.

So with all the hubbub going on back then about Amiga web browsers, these guys didn't make a peep?

IIRC, this picture, and the project, was before the implementation of CSS as a standard. It may even predate CSS's development.  I believe the source code for this project has been lost, though I am not 100% sure.

Sad, really sad... :cry:

 But always have a hope. Can someone contact the former company and ask for the source codes to improve some of the new browsers?

Well that bit of info makes my gut churn. Never good to hear about what could have been, but never was. :/

Hmm looks like unfortunately I was wrong  :-(
I take it the new iBrowse does not support CSS either.

looks promising, but iBrowse 2.3 probably walks all over it now
