The mission is to create a web browser and pop3 email reader that has a full screen GUI entirely in DirectX 8. The browser does not need java / jscript or other web based scripting language support, but if it can be included it will add a great deal of value to the project. The obtaining of data must be entirely winsock (or lower level), we cannot depend on any Windows gui based components. This program will eventually be ported to a set top box type device. The gui needs to be able to fit onto a standard pal / ntsc display so no resolution higher than 640x480 at the moment. I am happy to offer some form of royalties if we decide to maket the application. Coder must be happy for the program to possibly become open source. Any coders that have knowledge of the XBOX games console will have an advantage. There is no timescale, frequent updates will be required. This project is potentially ongoing and may become integrated into other projects. We may be willing to supply the target platform to the coder if / when we decide to port from windows.
