Startup Speed? Fast, about 5 seconds Slow, must download many megs of data

Can Follow Internal Web Links? No
Links within the application for the instruction manual, the PureBibleSearch.com website, and Bethel church do not function. While the VNC client is running within a web browser, KJPBS is not and therefore it doesn't have access to your web browser to navigate you to those links, nor does it have a PDF viewer for the manual.
Yes
Since the Emscripten version is actually running inside your web browser, it can instruct the browser to open website links or the online version of the manual.
