NetSurf 3.10 web browser released
« on: May 25, 2020, 01:35:52 PM »
NetSurf 3.10 features many fixes, better performance and improved functionality. In particular, handling of authentication, certificates and fetch errors have been updated and unified. We recommend all users upgrade to NetSurf 3.10.

A new feature is the page info display which may look familiar to users of mainstream browsers!

I have been using NetSurf for a long time.  Thanks for your work on supporting and improving NetSurf.

I see the busy pointer popping up alot while the forum.amiga.org web pages load.
Other than that, seems to work ok on amiga.org.

Note, I see the same issue with amiga.org when using some of the other Amiga web browsers.  Usually shows up as the progress bar stopping momentarily as the web page loads.

Thanks,
redfox

OS3 or OS4?  Is it working after those messages, because it sounds like it might be?

It works after those messages. OS3 machines.

This is what I got on my OS4 machine

I have never used NetSurf, but I am willing to try.
So far my experience with other web browsers is that about half or less or today's modern web sites (forums) will load.
What's the general sorta hit and success rate with Netsurf?
Also, does AmiSSL have to be installed with NetSurf? Or does Netsurf have all that stuff built in.

Cheers,
Matt.

Hopefully your Amiga has better CPU than 68EC020, it woun't work. It requires OS3.5/9 and at least 32mb ram.

It depens, I think that Odyssey loads 99,99% of pages, but some could say less than half. Netsurf works OK.

I mainly use Netsurf on my OS4 machine (800mhz PPC) and rarely I need to start Odyssey to download something.

I think that you needs to download and install amissl

That might be normal.  The disk cache format has changed so it recreates it on startup.  If it does it every time you might want to delete the cache manually (in users/{user} somewhere)

Yes, but only on OS3.  On OS4 it uses a built-in OpenSSL.
