I also struggled with altBrowser 1 and have just finished building my
first web browser into my project and can definitely say it is
fantastic. Once I got my email address correct it was a breeze to
use, install and impress the heck out of every one that sees it. I
had my own address wrong for the registration. DUH.
Anyway, bravo to Chipp and team on a superb product, definitely worth
the effort and you can't beat the price.
I also got the altFont application and have not used it yet.
