A2 Web Browser is indeed a web browser, and claims to be a good one. Although the author is correct on it being easy to use, there are of course a few problems with it.

The first thing I noticed when I ran it was it's speed. Now, I'm using a crappy five year old Dell right now, but most Game Maker games run just fine. The A2 browser actually started to lag my mouse cursor, and the music I was playing in the background. I imagine this is something to do with the browser DLL it uses. Although I don't think this should concern most people, this is definately a downside for people who use older PC's.

OK, so it runs perfectly on your PC. Then what else should you know about it? Well, the next thing I noticed was the graphics. They are better than most, and were not ripped, but a few things could have been worked out. The buttons and a few of the other graphics seemed a little hard-edged. Also, I was a little disgruntled about the logo they put on the browser (A2 Productions). In my opinion, they should have made and info window displaying who made it. It seems to waste a lot of space, and is kind of pointless.

The last thing I noticed is that the DLL it uses uses the IE rendering engine. Although this isn't necessarliy a bad thing, the IE rendering engine is becoming outdated very fast, especially compared to ones like Gecko.

So why use the A2 browser then? Well, I really don't know. This is exactly like using IE, except with fancy graphics, less features, and a couple button links to some Game Maker sites. This could be compared to sub-os's made in Game Maker. You don't expect people to use it, you make it just to see if you can. Plus, it's fun.

Conclusion

If you're looking for a new browser, I'd reccomend the fast growing Firefox. Otherwise, just stick with IE. I don't think the A2 Web Browser is convenient at all.

Although resource heavy it is indeed a great acheivment to be able to even construct a browser through GM.. another interesting avenue for Wkd./ to investigate.

Excellent!!! very good idea, but add more features so you can try and compete with IE and Firefox, but keep up the good work in later versions

The graphics are looking quite good now! I would use it, but I like the tabs in firefox too much.
Keep up the good work.
