NICE!
I tryed it, but that great problem was that it was locked at 800x600...
Plz at least(if cant be user configurable yet) lock it at 1024x768 at least!
Sites was displyed really weird at that low(for modern sites) resolution...

@Tuxedo

You can do that yourself from SYS:Prefs/Screens. Just insert the NetSurf screen in the list and change it to what you want.

You can change that in the options file - window_screen_width/height. Forcing the size any other way is a bad idea as Netsurf uses these values as the basis of the off-screen BitMap size.

Anyway this isn't news. This is an upload to OS4Depot of the old version which has been on Aminet for two months. I should have a newer preview SVN5588 or higher out, if all goes according to plan, this weekend.

If you already have netSurf, don't bother to download the above as it is the same old buggy version that you already have!

are you still bringing it with you to the MAG UK Event? We are arranging the internet connection etc, so the seminar should be a great place to show the latest versions off and take questions

Yes, I started wondering when I discovered that it still used 100% CPU power. I read somewhere that you fixed that issue. Thanks for clearing that up.

Nice, not bad for a first version Although OWB is currently faster in scrolling webpages like AmigaWorld.net.

What I like most is the GUI, that download works and that 32 bit pointers works is nice. However, the way pages are displayed isn't very well .
