Untitled[edit]

Somewhere, somewhere on the w3c site I seem to recall seeing there being a link between Tim Berners Lee's programme for NeXT STEP called WWW (in caps, it was actually the name of the programme) and Amaya, but I'm not sure where. Anyone have any luck? Kim Bruning 13:09, 27 Jun 2004 (UTC)

Well, I didn't find any hyperlink, but WWW could edit every page, as can Amaya, that's basically the link I guess. By the way, does anybody know of any public open pages that can be edited with the app, like some "Amaya Sandbox"? If so, where? Peter S. 09:42, 4 October 2005 (UTC)
I have looked, but never been able to find. ~LinuxeristTux-linux logo.svgNuvola apps emacs.png E/L/T 03:49, 20 May 2006 (UTC)

Browser[edit]

Do people really use it as a web browser? Or were older versions intended for that? --AVRS (talk) 13:02, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

Browsing Very few persons use Amaya at all, so it's market share is small, but it is intended to be a browser in addition to an editor (e.g. Internet suites such as Netscape or SeaMonkey.) While it is true that it is an authoring tool, that is not mutually exclusive of it being a browser. —Justin (koavf)TCM☯ 21:42, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

Yes, people did use it as a browser; I know I did in the late 90s. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 140.185.55.86 (talk) 19:21, 21 March 2014 (UTC)

Dubious[edit]

Perhaps not the best tag, but I couldn't think of another. In any case, I think it goes without saying using a 2003 ref to compare Amaya to 'modern' web browsers is somewhat flawed... Nil Einne (talk) 17:34, 5 February 2011 (UTC)

I don't think the article would suffer much if the statement was removed. 69.171.160.95 (talk) 01:16, 21 February 2011 (UTC)
