HummingBird
HummingBird is a project I finished a while ago, but never submitted to 64D. Well, here it is!

HummingBird is a nice, user-friendly web browser. I originally designed it to be personal, but then decided to make it universal, so I changed the name from Michael's web browser to 'HummingBird'.

Thanks.


Target platforms:



-Why does pressing enter not go to the site I type in when the textbox is selected? I shouldn't have to hit the 'go' button.

-For some reason, if you type somethign in and DON'T hit enter (which seemingly does nothing) but then hit the go button, nothign happens.. it doesnt go to the site even though the address is typed in.

-You could implement a way to edit the preferences file in the program instead of having ot do that for the homepage.

-Hitting back goes to the previous pages, but doesnt change the URL bar to what it was (like normal browsers)

-(I think this is the same as the second one) When I hit the go button after using the navigation buttons, it goes to a site that I was at before, bt not the one in the URL bar

-hitting TAB does not go to the next item (like in normal browsers/programs)


Ok, that is about when I quit out and decided that you didn't really.... do much to the original browser example on GMC. It's nice, and I can see it going somewhere, but it is obvious that you did not test this anywhere near thoroughly.

I'll 6 this. Sorry, best I can do.

1- after a few types in the url bar, I cannot seem to type in it.
2-7 same as SleepinJohnnyFish.
8- no fullscreen or changing window size
9- the best web browser I have seen made with game maker, I'll rate 8 for that.

score:
8/10

This game is half 1337! Nice web-browser, by the way.

Wow, that's awesome. You should make tabs, and where's the file and view and edit menus and stuff, and I can't press enter to go to an address, etc...

It's great, well done. I definitely couldn't even begin doing that. Well done. It could use a couple of improvements, but I'm sure everything can.
