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.
