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:

- no connections are made to third-party websites - content is downloaded straight from YouTube and all processing is done locally
- files are saved in your Downloads directory
- keyboard shortcut: Ctrl + Shift + Y
- requirement: a recent version of the youtube-dl.exe tool must be present in the same directory as forkle.exe
- youtube-dl homepage: https://ytdl-org.github.io/youtube-dl/download.html
- note that this feature is in alpha and has not been heavily tested yet.

Thanks for your feedback.

Issues: (downloaded windows exe)
attempted execution in forkle_x64 directory
---------------------------
youtube-dl.exe - System Error
---------------------------
The code execution cannot proceed because MSVCR100.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem.
---------------------------
OK
---------------------------



added MSVCR100.dll to the directory
---------------------------
youtube-dl.exe - Application Error
---------------------------
The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b). Click OK to close the application.
---------------------------
OK
---------------------------

Had essentially the same problem with prior version except on that one instead of getting the second error, a command window simply opened and then immediately closed.

Ouch. I had no such issues here (Windows 10 x64) and did not have to add any extra DLLs - Please could you confirm your OS version?

Also, did you install the VC++ package recommended on the youtube-dl homepage?

Hi firace.

I've been following discreetly, but with interest, the evolution of your web browser.
Today, I decided to give it a try.
Unfortunately, I was stopped dead in my tracks with the same security updates warning that your chief bug-hunter and bottle washer (Little John) — and others — mentioned way back in January 2019. I certainly was not expecting that, since I keep my system (Windows 10 1903 X64, French) up-to-date.

I changed the name of the executable to forkle_nsc as you suggested on February 19, but i don't feel comfortable with the idea of bypassing something that i don't understand, especially where it relates to security. Have you uncovered any new facts that would explain this warning on an up-to-date system ??

Thanks for your good work and good ideas.
