Hi everyone,

A new version of the Wayfarer web browser for MorphOS has been released! This time it is version 1.8. It can be downloaded from the official website here:

I have installed Wayfarer on my MorphOS setup (Mac Mini G4) and have enjoyed using it for a while. It is very compatible and allows me to do work related tasks, which is brilliant. 🙂 If you use MorphOS, I highly recommend you give it a try.

Here are the updates for the latest version of Wayfarer:

Wayfarer 1.8 is now out with jpeg2k support, latest OpenSSL and cURL, translation services support, network performance and many other improvements. This release also contains several important bug fixes that were impacting overall stability.

To download Wayfarer 1.8, either go to or select ‘Check for Updates’ in Wayfarer’s menu. To update, simply extract the lha archive and copy all files over your existing installation, replacing old files. Your settings will not be affected.
