Development State Alpha

T-Games Sapphire is an internet browser developed by Billy Anderson and Dillon M.. The software is programmed in VB.NET, using the Internet Explorer engine that .NET defaults to. Sapphire is designed with "simplicity in mind", and ease of use. It has never entered beta, and T-Bit was given the property rights on March 28, 2014.

After 0.0.2, Sapphire paused development due to Anderson's trial of Visual Studio expiring (but the community edition was lesser known at the time). The next version would be pioneered by Dillon M., 0.0.3, but never released due to his leave in November. A previous edit stated the source code was lost, however when things settled the next year, Sapphire's source code was transferred but it's current location remains unknown.
