    Arrow Lobo Browser 0.97.5

    Lobo is an open source web browser that is written entirely in Java. It is being developed with the aim to support HTML 4, Javascript and CSS2. The general goal of the project is to produce a browser that is fast, easy to extend, secure and feature-rich.

    Lobo is being released along with its pure Java rendering engine, Cobra. Version 0.97.5 introduces a BrowserPanel class, improved float layout and many bug fixes. Please see the changelog for details.

    It looks like a lot of time and effort has gone into this project. Nice work! However I am wondering why this project was started instead of contributing to the existing Flying Saucer project which has been around since 2004? https://xhtmlrenderer.dev.java.net/ Also the Mozilla Rhino JavaScript engine : Rhino - JavaScript for Java

    These projects seem more complete, but nobody has integrated them into a usable web browser application yet as far as I know.


    Thanks,
    Ryan

    Default Re: Integration

    Rhino is actually integrated into Cobra and Lobo. As fas as Flying Saucer, I did consider using it as a starting point for the HTML capability (Lobo started out as a browser for a language named XAMJ and HTML came later). After discussing with the maintainers of Flying Saucer, it appeared that we wanted to take the projects in different directions. It just didn't happen - whether that was the right or wrong decision at the time is a different matter.
