Web Browsers You May Not Have Heard of

Whilst trolling through the MyPE statistics pages it struck me that
everyone is only intereted in the most. As in which pages had the most
visitors, which browsers are used the most and so on……

Just for giggles I had a
look at which Browsers featured less than 10
times in the MyPE statistics for September and the worthy (?) winners


The Amiga is a family of personal computers sold by Commodore in the
1980s and 1990s. The first model was launched in 1985 as a high-end
home computer and became popular for its impressive graphical, audio
and multi-tasking abilities. The Amiga provided a significant upgrade
from 8-bit computers, such as the Commodore 64, and the platform
quickly grew in popularity among computer enthusiasts. The best selling
model, the Amiga 500, was introduced in 1987 and became the leading
home computer of the late 1980s and early 1990s in much of Western
Europe. In North America success was more modest. The Amiga went on to
sell approximately six million units. Second generation Amiga systems
(A1200 and A4000) were released in 1992. However, failure to repeat the
technological advances of the first systems and poor marketing meant
that the Amiga quickly lost its market share to competing platforms,
such as the game consoles and IBM PC compatibles.

According to the Vaporware web site: For years, Amiga Voyager has been
leading Amiga browser development, always striving to keep the Amiga
platform in sync with the evolving standards of WWW technology. And
development is far from stopping now.

Cyberdog.org web site was unavailable):

Cyberdog was an internet suite developed by Apple Computer for the Mac
OS line of operating systems. It was introduced as a beta in February
1996 and abandoned in March 1997. The last version, Cyberdog 2.0, was
released on April 28, 1997. It worked with later versions of Mac OS 7
as well as the Mac OS 8 and Mac OS 9 operating systems.

Cyberdog was named for a character in the 1995 Wallace and Gromit film
A Close Shave.


OmniWeb is a proprietary Internet web browser developed and marketed by
The Omni Group. It is available exclusively for Apple Inc.’s Mac OS X
operating system. Like many of its competitors in the Macintosh
alternative browser market, Mozilla’s Firefox and Camino, for instance,
OmniWeb is available as a free download.

From the OmniWeb site: OmniWeb is a powerful, feature-rich alternative
to the standard web browser. Save time and be more productive by using
built-in web shortcuts and unique drag-and-drop tabbed windows. Stay
organized with workspaces that save web pages you have in your tabs,
your history, and even the location of your windows on your screen.
Tell OmniWeb how you want the web to work – on each individual domain
can choose how to interact with its content, from changing the text
size to blocking ads, managing cookies, or telling OmniWeb where to
save downloads. Instead of being limited to a standard set of page
viewing functions, OmniWeb gives you total control over your entire
browsing experience.


iCab is a web browser for the Macintosh by Alexander Clauss, derived
from Crystal Atari Browser (CAB) for Atari TOS compatible computers. It
is the most recently actively developed browser for 68k-based
Macintoshes that features tabbed browsing and one of a
very few browsers that was still updated in the recent past for the
classic Mac OS at all; only Classilla is more recent.

The downloadable product is fully functional, but is
nagware – periodically displaying a dialog box asking the user to
register the product, and upgrade to the “Pro” version.

One interesting aspect of iCab is Kiosk mode: While in Kiosk mode, iCab
will cover the whole screen and all other applications are blocked. The
Kiosk mode is the ideal environment when the computer is accessing a
public place where users should be able to obtain information, yet
prevent any external access to your system. Additionally, the access
can be restricted to certain pages (even refusing referrals, if you

Of all the above I would probably like to give the iCab
a run to see
how it operates.
