NetSurf 3.0 released
« on: April 25, 2013, 06:01:06 PM »
NetSurf is a small, fast, CSS capable web browser for AmigaOS 4 and other platforms.  The OS4 version has an OS4 native GUI and does not require AmiCygnix.

NetSurf 3.0 contains many changes over the 2.x release series. The biggest difference is the use of our new Document Object Model library, LibDOM. This new library is a foundation that paves the way for us to implement a fully dynamic layout engine in the future. Other improvements in NetSurf 3.0 include completely new textarea support, ability to fetch and parse CSS in parallel with HTML documents, extensive behind-the-scenes refactoring, and a host of smaller changes and fixes. A more complete listing is available in the Change Log.

NB: This is a "semi-unofficial" build with early JavaScript support. There may be an "official" build from the more well-tested CI server at a later date.

Well done Chris, it looks very nice.

It´s a shame there isn´t a version for real Amigas though. :(

I love it, i havent installed/tested the new versions of netsurf for a very long while but this time i did and it's really good now. it works good and is fast. It didn't work with facebook but the other sites i visit frequently have worked but i'm sure i'll find lots of sites in the future that don't work because of the limited javascript support.

Me-thinks the same too ... waiting for a 68k Web-Browser with CSS & Javascript that works, and doesn't slow the 68k (060) tooooo much.

Great to see an alternative to Timberwolf, even if it's an early stage release.

Good work Chris :D

It's here; thought it does slow down the 060 a bit too much.

The 68k version is nothing to do with me.  I do not want to be associated with it as long as it insists on using the Framebuffer frontend.
