Warp on the Web
With Reports on Web Browsers for OS/2
A Quick Look at XWarpzilla
July 21, 2001

Summary: Port of Warpzilla for X-windows systems. Runs under Xfree86 on Warp.
Source: Hobbes at http://hobbes.nmsu.edu and Harry Sobotka at
Version: Based on Warpzilla 0.8.
Installation: Exceptionally complicated and time consuming installation of Xfree86 and I still haven't gotten Xwarpzilla running. Needs GTK+ installed first.
Problems: the pain... Install is tough. I haven't beaten it yet. All Warpzilla products need lots of memory. Xwarpzilla readme says it needs 30 megs.
Recommendation: Great for the masochist or psychotically curious.
Take a look at the browser overview with quick looks at other web browsers for OS/2.
