Some browsers will not follow the link but will redirect you back to forums so copy link to address bar

Sure homebrew browsers will be faster, but is it safer? I'm in the middle of making one myself. Let me try yours out and when I've got a beta down I'll trade with you

Edit: Um, what did you program this in? I'm not running it without seeing the source

Yeah I just tested it and it is just Internet Explorer with his own development around it, probably using Visual Basic.net or something.

i did write it in Visual Basic but i re wrote the EXE file that compiles the browser into it to take some unneeded loading steps out of IE. Pluss got rid of the proxy detection.

Here is the edits i made to Browse.exe for the browser

-Tookout network proxy detection
-Changed ping commands to 5 byte instead of 32 and 1 reply instead of three to check for an alive server
-Made it more dialup freindly


Future changes
-Built in connection booster
-Built in firewall
-Favorites
-Tabs
-Enable return key to submit URL
-Better streaming socket capabilities


all though the browser it self is in visual basic i had to edit the browser plugin with C++.

only problem is. Most websites still log it as IE

Okay, as we say in wales "Fair Play" It would be virtually impossible to code your own Browser from scratch without it taking YEARS. Good look
