WebView mainly but iBrowser will automatically render your default browser so it can browse virtually anything.

There is no import function because iBrowser're supposed to run with Safari installed and match to Safari's bookmarks.

What kind of engine is this browser built upon? Can you transfer bookmarks? I went to the linked developers website but there was no reference to the browser?

This is the best web desktop I could find. The only minus is there's no way to retain browser's width/height. Everytime it reload it'll zoom back to default kiosk mode.

I love this program. It works great on my iBook. It works great on my friend's powerbook too. An awesome program. An idea who's time has come. I really like the way one can decide on their own if they want the menu bar and dock to hide. And what transparency they want to view it at. The only reason I give the features a three is because some plug-ins and games and stuff don't work well on it. (Yes I have the prefs set correctly for this). The ease of use is awesome. It would be helpful if it had some help to explain how to resize windows and such. The value is awesome because it's free. I love free things, this is the only thing of it's kind that I can find that is free. Also I love the built-in google search. And I was pleased with how it retrievs my Safari bookmarks. The stability is good. I haven't had it crash once. I just don't really like the icon in the menu bar, it takes up too much space. And I wish that the address bar didn't cover sit on top of the page. Also just to forwarn you it took a little bit extra time to restart my computer after I installed it but after that it runs very smoothly. But all in all this is a great program and I'm really pleased with it. Good work!

It works okay, but it does not cover the whole screen on my 14-inch iBook.

At the bottom of my screen it leaves a few centimeters uncovered, I can see my desktop.

Checked the prefences settings, quit and relaunched iBrowser a few times, no joy... still did not cover my screen completely.

I'm sorry cuz It only support from 1024x768 & up prior to my habit with my comp.

Hopefully I will add 800x600 & 640x480 later in next versions awhile, Thanks.

I think this is normal cuz the bottom is little spaced out bec of toolbar where you can use to move your iBrowser window around, if you resize it smaller then you will see black trans. toolbar just right slightly below the webview.

I will try to add a check box to disable it & to renable it E.g in/out of fullscreen mode or something else later.

exactly what the last guy said. It does cover your whole screen if you drag it down a bit below the menu bar. Plus you can drag the window to expand and decrease its size so you can change it that way to. There's no reason why you should be able to change this in prefs because it works just fine dragging it. I have a 14 inch iBook too and it works just fine. And it does for everyone else I know who uses it too.

plus there's no reason why he should have to get permission because it's not exactly the same. But he said he did so that's even better.
