The Icon Bar Technology news and views !OBrowse reviewed !OBrowse was originally released as a 'freebie/thank-you' to anyone who had put money into RISC OS developments.

There are lots of ways to share filesystems across networks (such as Samba) and cloud solutions (like PCloud, google drive). Some of these are very fiddly or do not work on RISC OS.
