JetBrowser has been released!
The project reached the peek of it's popularity in March of 2011, with more than 500 installations/uses around the globe and more than 1100 throughout it's lifespan. However, after some time, the project was completely dropped due to technical difficulties. The Windows Phone client never even reached the Marketplace.
At that time, Cinux 0.3 was released so the project ended up being inactive for more that a year. Right before I dropped the Windows version I announced that I would be developing a version of the browser exclusively for Linux systems. So, here we are today, with JetBrowser 6.0c. A lightweight web browser written in C, Python and a little Bash providing anonymity, security and a fast environment to it's users. It also provides goodies for web developers, since it's based on the WebKit web platform.
JetBrowser 6 will replace Firefox on Cinux but, it's a browser targeted to all Linux distributions. Therefore, for now, it won't be provided as a package. This will have to change in the future though. If you want to use it, simply extract the downloaded archive to some directory and hit "sudo ./install" and that's about it!
You can download JetBrowser 6 now if you click on the tab "JetBrowser" above.
