A new public beta version of the web browser Sputnik has been released for Morphos. Sputnik is based on KHMTL / Webcore, thus shares a substantial amount of source code with Apple's Safari and KDE's Konqueror. Despite its beta status, Sputnik features by far the most modern browser engine available to MorphOS users today.
