The Classic Browser... at last!

Postby Get Real! » Mon Dec 19, 2016 5:59 am

Ok boys and girls… after a difficult eight odd months I finally have the first version of the browser available for download.

At this point in time I’ll just release it here on the forum in the hope that I’ll get some crucial feedback so that I can fix any problems before going public on a wider scale.

I’m having some technical issues getting my usual Windows installer “Inno Setup Compiler” to work so I’ve had to use an alternative older one called “Excelsior Installer” and although it seems to work fine on Win7 and XP, I’m not so sure it’ll work on Win8 or Win10. Probably not… :?

Anyway, under the annoying circumstances I’m now interested in TWO things from you…

1. Does this weird installer work on your system?

2. If ok, did my browser work Ok on your system?

Hoping to hear from you all soon and thanks for trying it out! :)

NB: Only the second “Win7” link should work for now.

GR: I would be more than happy to try out your new browser but ........... I am a computer dummy and you have me confused already! I have Windows XP Ultimate on my desktop and I need very simple instructions like ..... really simple. Send me an e-mail if you want with details and how I load it and apply it and I am willing to have a go.

GOOGLE is definitely compromised! A search now goes many pages of MSM links but sites like Global Research and Black Listed News do not appear in the search. A few weeks ago the first page was always the independent news sites. So it looks like WE have lost our right to freedom of information. All you get now are the 'false news' sites i.e. MSM. In short propaganda! :roll: :wink:

I wouldn't bother.

Google is just a search engine. There are dozens to choose from.

And there are engines that combine many of them.

I haven’t uploaded (to the website) an XP compatible version yet.

I’ll try to do it tomorrow and provide some easy to understand guidance for you.
