Enjoying Beta 3 very much. I can defiantly see the progress made. Overall I could probably use it as a daily system as my needs are not very complicated. My problem is with web surfing. Like a lot of people I spend a lot of time on the internet. While a lot of progress has been made in Haiku on that front I still find myself with issues. I am hoping there may be a way to mitigate some of them. If not then I will try again with Beta 4.
Web Positive - My biggest issue here is with Youtube. All videos play in very low res and clicking on the gear icon to change the resolution only results in the menu popping up for like a 1/2 second and then vanishing. As far as I can find, there really isn’t a way for me to get WebPositive to play anything above 360p.
Otter Browser - This one has been suggested throughout this board as a good alternative to WebPositive. Overall I do find it to do better. But still have issues with Youtube. It does seem to play video in a higher res but again I can’t seem to get it to change resolutions. Also, playback of Youtube videos is very, very choppy and not a good experience.
OTH - Playing any video from a local file works wonderfully. Highres, Lowres, in the middle res, it all is good.
I do know there is some tool to download youtube videos to watch them. but, I have no desire to download every video I want to watch.
If anyone has any suggestions on how I can work through these issues, that would be great. If not, then I will retire Beta 3 until Beta 4 and hope that the things are better then.
