You use this software at your own risk: I cannot be made liable for any damages that occur to you, your person or your property by direct or indirect use of this software.
Before we begin, this is for Vista, 7 and 8.
However, provided you have the latest version of the .NET framework installed, you may be able to coax other versions of Windows to use this software.
This software is in alpha. No guarantees are made by the use of this software, even as to it's intended use, and no warranty is provided either implicit or explicit in it's use.
This software has been developed in the space of 10 hours. It has been tested locally on my machine and on a Windows 7 VM.
Take that how you will. Bug reports are welcome, and users should consider it in no way finished. I can't see how it could conceivably break your Windows install, and an uninstaller is provided.
So here is this.
What it is:
This is a web browser. The real deal. It browses the web while looking cool. Purely for novelty.
It's based off of Andrew Hussie's webcomic Homestuck. So if you don't get it, go check that out or something.
What you get:
Tabs (because I love tabs)
It should all look like the preview. Obviously there will be variance between versions of Windows.
Tabs can be closed with the middle mouse button. This is how I manage my tabs in Chrome on my PC and I think everyone should do it this way. Furthermore, tabs were already a step away from the original project specifications that Andrew Hussie laid down when he invented this, so I didn't want to clutter the UI more with X'es everywhere.
Obvious note, I am not and cannot be responsible for unsafe browsing practices. Keep an antivirus going and be aware that if you relied on Chrome's notes like "This Website Contains Malicious Software!" you will not get those anymore. So be safe, damnit.
For those of you that have dabbled in software development, this was created with WPF, aka Windows Presentation Foundation, which is a core component of the new GUI model for .NET. The .NET programming language I've chosen is C# because it's sweet and easy to use.
This application is a wrapper for Awesomium (yes you read that right), which is itself a .NET wrapper for Chromium (not Chrome, I stress, Chromium, the underlying technology inside it).
Awesomium is copyright Awesomium Inc.
How to use it:
1) Run the setup file
"Oh, that was easy".
Use Ctrl+t or File > New Tab to open a new tab.
Click with the middle mouse button on a tab header to close the tab.
Open the bookmarks pane and hit "+" to add the current site to your bookmarks.
Delete a bookmark with the "X".
Bookmarks persist between sessions.
Go to File > Set Homepage to set the current page as your homepage.
How to uninstall:
Run the uninstaller in C:/Program Files(x86)/Rune, or in the relevant start menu program group.
