Hi,
Thanks for reporting the issue. The download link will be fixed shortly.
And a new (minor) update is coming soon.

Download link has been fixed. Thanks for sharing any feedback :)
Keep in mind, this is a work in progress and is best suited to lightweight, low-distraction web usage.

Version 0.69.0.747 is available, fixing some flickering issues occurring under certain conditions.
There's also a little easter egg - typing pbf in the address bar brings you straight to this forum. :)

Hello firace!

Really apreciate Your work!

But I get lost in this forum post.

Could You put some points in the Your first post?

- what engine is used?
- how many points n/555 are reached (HTML5test)?
- are developer tools available?
- some more?

A little list of all findings/knowledge concerning Your browser in this post would be really helpful.

Thanks a lot!

Regards

Hi thanks for your feedback! I am traveling at the moment but as soon as I get a chance, I will reorganize the first post as suggested. Just to give you a few very quick answers in the meantime:

The webview is an almost-standard webgadget, but with a few notable rendering differences ( for instance, compare the behavior of this login form in IE (broken) and Forkle: https://censys.io/login ).

HTML5test results should be quite similar to IE

No dev tools available

I would say the main strengths are:
    huge screenspace
    instart startup
    low memory usage
    blocks most ads
    does not phone home
    easy to carry on a USB drive

I'm testing new functionality that allows downloading the audio part of a Youtube video in a click. (Note that a copy of youtube-dl.exe will need to be present in the forkle directory for this to work seamlessly.)

Would anyone be interested in such a feature?

Of course this should only be used to download copyright-free content (podcasts, conferences, audiobooks, classical music, etc).

I've been using the tool for some time now and love it. It actually works better with a Pandora subscription than any other browser I've tried. :D

Yes, I would be interested in the youtube features.

cheers,

Wow, a post from a very early PB user - That's quite an honor!

A quick and dirty implementation of the Youtube-to-audio feature is now available in the latest build.

A few notes about this feature:

- a recent version of youtube-dl.exe must be present in the same directory as forkle.exe
- youtube-dl homepage: https://ytdl-org.github.io/youtube-dl/download.html
- keyboard shortcut: Ctrl + Shift + Y
- audio files are saved as M4A (the sucessor of MP3) in the Downloads directory
- note that this feature is in alpha and has not been heavily tested yet.

Thanks for your feedback.
