How does Off By One compare with K-M?

it's really, really stripped down. good backup browser.
not even remotely as configurable, or i'd use it more often.
and come to think of it, it might do SSL as well or better... ;)

And it's fast.
You can also tell it to act like it doesn't understand frames, to see how your site looks to a search spider; and tell it not to send the referrer header, for when you want to be anonymous. The entire cache is in memory. Erase the cookie file and nothing is left behind.
I used it a lot until I found KM. Still run it now and then. Nice little browser.

How many files does it use? ob1.exe, 2 SSL .dlls, a cookie file, ...any .INI files? Does it modify the registry?

- ob1.exe, libeay32.dll, ssleay32.dll, hpsw.cki, install.log, unwise.exe (installdir)
- ob1.ini (windir)
Registry: as far as I know, OB1 uses only two entries in "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\The Off By One Web Browser\" (for its uninstallation).

I think if you install it as from a pure zip file you'd only get
- ob1.exe, libeay32.dll, ssleay32.dll, hpsw.cki,
- ob1.ini (windir)
Off By One Browser in a Zip File with OpenSSL DLLs
OffByOne32JS2.zip (about 800KB) contains the Off By One browser application and the optional OpenSSL support files files SSLeay32.DLL and libeay32.DLL.
No installation is necessary, just extract and run ob1.exe.
Is there any advantage using the Setup application rather than in a ZIP file?

I get always an error msg when trying to connect to a site:
Status: Failed - could not connect to "google.com".
yup, I was connected to the Internet

I tried out OB1 around the same time I found K-Meleon. Also Act 10, 404, and some I've forgotten. Any that stayed around for more than 24 hours were there because I forgot about them. Even for off-line use, they didn't seemt worth keeping.
What I like for quick viewing off-line and even for - well, here I am, using it for this - is the demo browser from http://www.pbear.com/
I had been using an old version of the viewer for off-line viewing for some time, no idea where I got it from. Finally got down and searched out the site. It comes with source (Delphi), so you can build your own.
Thought I might as well toss this into the soup

No problem here with http://google.com
