|New Amiga Web Browser in Development!!!|
Chris Young demonstrated his early port of Netsurf for the Amiga.
Although it is still flakey and not complete, the executable is about 7mb in size and loads in under 3 seconds on OS4.x.
* Very fast (much faster than OWB - speed seems comparable to AWebOS4 and starts up in a couple of seconds, and that's without any compiler optimisations)
* Small footprint (executable is under 5MB when stripped, and memory usage is low - but I need to do some sort of quantitative measurement of that)
* Supports CSS
* Fully localisable
* Multiple windows
* Core engine not as mature as (eg) OWB's, so some sites may render less correctly
