LWD chose that as a workaround for not being able to do the "normal" look in Firefox.

Hero Lab Online doesn't work in IE at all. The print page looks like the Chrome one in every supported browser except Firefox-derived ones, I believe.

Not enough developer time and/or experience, presumably.

Hard to say "never", but "creating and/or editing characters while not connected to the Internet" and "creating completely new game systems" seem pretty unlikely.

Again, "not possible" is hard to say, but at present Starfinder is only on HLO. HLO also works on other operating systems with current browser support.

I doubt any new systems will be brought to Classic, though no announcements have been made as far as I know. The two most likely places to make those announcements (PaizoCon and Gen Con) are coming soon, so watch for more info.

Assuming you can trust a wiki. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Firefox

Its still somewhat popular, however Chrome, Edge and Safari have likely edged it out since its not default on any machines such as the other 3 are.

The only "hobby" GW is interested in is lining their pockets with your money.

I don’t need to trust Wikipedia, I’ve used it since the beta.

Me too! My High school buddies used to tease me because I always just used IE since that was what was installed. Come on, install firefox, all the cool kids are doing it. And like a 90s PSA about the dangers of peer pressure I buckled. Good thing my friends were nerds rather than * insert preferred teenage clique to deride *!

The first thing one should do when getting a new computer is to get a working browser. That means something other than IE or Edge.

So, has anything improved yet? I would try it out but I can't without buying it.

They have a demo available. http://www.wolflair.com/hlo/

While not the browser I user MS Edge has been shown to extend battery life by quite a bit when used on a laptop. https://www.windowscentral.com/edge-...tery-life-test

Shown by a MS test. From the same article, "It's worth noting that there are some caveats to these tests that will probably make them hard to replicate in real-world use."

Regardless of that, as stated by evdjj3j - you don't need to buy either version of Hero Lab to trial the software. If you want to see what HLO is like for yourself, don't buy/subscribe, try the demo.

Current RPG's: Pathfinder (GM), Pathfinder (Player), Gamma World (GM, Pathfinder homebrew).

Wish I could try it, but I can't with my current license.

Yeah, the M$ selfies are nice to advertise with, but real use begets frustration and fist waving as Edge and IE are behind on most things as the other browsers standards exceed them.
