What's new in Desktop Web Browser

Version 7.1:
  • A full recompilation has been made to be compatible with High Sierra, and as Universal Binary to keep being compatible with both old (PowerPC) Macs and recent (Intel) Macs.
  • The "How to intall it?" paragraph of the documentation has been updated to explain how to install and launch the Application in particular under Mac OS 10.13 High Sierra:
  • Under Mac OS 10.13 High Sierra, if you're launching the Application for the first time, Mac OS' GateKeeper (which you can configure in the "System Preferences") will refuse to launch it because you've not downloaded it from the Mac App Store (but from our website). In this case, instead of double-clicking on it, all you have to do is to right-click on the Application's icon, and then select the "Open" menu. A message will appear in which you'll be able to confirm that you want to launch the Application (even if it was not downloaded from the Mac App Store from an Identified Developer).

A rip off. Charging this much for slapping a badly written front end on somebody else's work is a disgrace. AlphaOmega software are a disgrace.

Just bought this product 3 months ago (it never worked properly, and I never received requested tech support)! Now this author wants to be paid again for this newest version.

Cute little app, but not worth money. I can't see myself actually using it as it's easier for me to just fire up Safari.
