Browsy - A browser for System 6

Recommended Posts

We have been talking about Browsy before. It is around from around 2014. Nice software, but only shows pages in HTML. 

Do a search on our forum for Browsy and you will find more postings.

If you're a software dev, what's particularly cool about Browsy is that it's compiled using Retro68. In other words, the entire app was written and compiled using gcc on a modern-day Mac, PC or Linux box.

...this thing has been around since 2014? Geez. I spent a lot of time earlier this year getting back into the hobby and I feel like I googled system 6 browser a million times and searched for information wherever I could but couldn't seem to find anything other then MacWWW. And now all of a sudden I notice that thread about Browser6 (which it seems never got developed very far and god knows if there's a copy publicly available ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ) and I'm hearing about Browsy.

 

I'm not very religious, but it's like there's a magic man in the sky that said "ok, it's time to let werdna know about all the system 6 browsers now."

 

I've been thinking about writing apps for compact macs sooner or later; Retro68 might be very useful.
