So here is what I got. Spent about 10 minutes putting this together from the GDI I mentioned earlier.

It boots on all the emulators j tried (nulldc, reicast, demul) but I have zero idea about web connectivity. I'm not sure what the fuss is all about, it seemed super easy to turn into a selfboot cdi.

Here's a link: https://mega.nz/#!ohl1xTCB!1GmxcSY61cUP ... ncnVNdMuRI

Should extract into a CDI that can be easily be burned. It's not dummied so the file loading time should suck (sorry, again its a quick test). If that's what you're looking for then let me know and we can proceed.

Thanx!

To answer your question, Itsthinking is trying to experiment with it by doing some tweaking. This browser has had it's issues on the web and XDP did not cover this. Although I have had good luck with XDP, others have not. PW3.0 was a good browser in it's day (Mozilla 3.0 I believe).

Not anytime soon. 3.0 is looking to be a pain to get working so we are most likely going to use 2.6 as a starting point. We might do a dreamkey (or at least a dreamkey thats boot able) but no promises. And of course this all boils down to how much time i have. :cry: maybe in a few week expect some screen shots or maybe a download link

Are you having issues generating an iso after modifying stuff? Or just issues with the browser crashing when too much is being processed?
