Major changes to Voyager since Version 1.0:

Supports Frames as introduced by Netscape 2.x

 Uses internal image decoding routines. Visually incremental
  on-the-fly image decoding, leaving the program operational
  during decode. No more hassle with datatypes related bugs.
  Optimized memory usage. The routines are optimized for speed
  and are very fast. Full support of CyberGFX HiColor/TrueColor
  screens and compatibles.

 Supports HTML tables. Many more HTML commands 
  and Netscapism's are understood (including FONT SIZE and
  HR WIDTH). Improved general compatibility with broken
  and nonstandard HTML code.

 Supports versatile plugin interface for third-party
  extensions to the browser.

 Shipped with a handy split-screen web search engine plugin.

 Supports T/TCP "TCP for Transactions" requests,
  allowing for much faster establishment of HTTP links
  to servers. This is currently supported by
  Miami 1.9.x beta versions only. Specified
  in RFC 1644, as far as we know, Voyager is the
  first browser on any platform to support this!

 Totally reworked preference setting. The transfer anim is 
  now configurable, too.

 New so-called 'local' menus which pop up over links and
  images offering options such as opening in new window,
  copying URL to clipboard, downloading to disk or adding
  URL to bookmarks. Local menus also function for Frames by
  offering full window viewing, saving Frame and viewing
  Frame source.

 Supports Shift & Click downloading of files even from
  servers with broken configuration which state
  that binary data is of type "text/plain". This
  happens frequently with .lha and .lzx files,
  because these suffixes are missing in many
  http server example mime.types files.

 Added internal SMTP (E-mail) send capability. Now also
  supports mailto: links and mailto: Forms.

 Improved news handling.

 'LED' transfer status display additionally shows
  stalled transfers. (Well I thought it was neat)

 Many minor enhancements, and of course
  All The Popular Bugs were fixed, too.
