Hello world!!
Star Wars Galaxies's NGE has fascinated us players since the ultimate SOE let-down back in 2005, and this time around, they have released an innovative new feature:
An in-game browser!
The browser is still on Test Center for "Game Update 5" (along with in-game Voice Chat, and significant changes to Weapon & Armor crafting), but it will be live later this month.

Although SWG's in-game browser was primarily made for a "Help" button replacement, players who type in "/browse" will find themselves in their very own Explorer, complete with a Back/Forward button, Refresh button, and address bar. I was able to even check my Myspace, check my E-mail, and go on MMORPG to post this blog.


The biggest thing I found with this feature is that I can surf the net and play the game without having to ALT+TAB out. I can easily switch from browser to game with a click of the mouse with 0 lag, and can grow/shrink the window however I want. I can look at the game or send tells while on the internet, and to close, all I have to do is click the "X" on the top right.

The browser is still on Test Center (it still needs to be Java/Flash compliant), but expect it to satisfy players around your live galaxy soon!
