I did make couple posts before and has been basically brushed off saying that the Enigma is dependent on IE or NS.
I am using the newest version and it's great. Small, fast and does NOT need IE or NS to run!
Why so many people worry just about NS or IE if they DO have alternative.
At least I did read the info, the forum and download the prog to give it a good work out before I make my mind and dump it.

Just have a look at it and try the NEW version. What do you have to loose? Nothing! What do you have to gain? Possibly a good new browser.

Please don't make any smart comments before you try the Enigma. I don't work for them. I am just offering information.

Neat little thing, bookmark handling could use some work though.

>...does NOT need IE or NS to run!

Some IE engine components are definetely used. All in all it's a nice find.

Great, now it's two of us! :)

Remember it's like a race car, you never get the same comfort like in Cadillac.

Also, the guy is changing the version almost every second day and welcomes all
the suggestion. You should see the mess in the beginning. :)

Thanks for not chewing me up for the post.

Looks pretty nifty, a work in progress to be sure, but pretty cool. When I first searched for it, I found a different Enigma site (not related to the browser) and it said "Best viewed with Netscape" - lol

Ok now that makes two that didn't chew you up ...

I had trouble with missing .dll files, and assumed it was because I am on Win95 and Enigma needs Win98. Can anyone either confirm or refute this idea?

I haven't used 95 in a long time, can't really say. If you need dlls, check out [solo.abac.com...] - chances are they have the .dll's you need.

It takes MSHTML.DLL <--- that *IS* ie and you won't find that available for download without IE.

Without a license agreement, I think that is illegal. MS hasn't made IE components distributable.

Another minority browser:

I've just upgraded my Linux desktop to KDE2, and the browser that comes with it (Konquerer) is fairly awesome. From first impressions it seems to render very similarly to IE, but is *fast*, and has such tweakables as allowing / disallowing Java and JS by domain.

Very nice indeed - recommended for anyone running *nix :)
