View Full Version : NetSurf Web Browser

Anyone else used this? It's primarily for RISCOS, but there's a GTK port. Personally I wish more Linux gurus would take an interest in it so it could have working bookmarks and other goodies users of Gecko based browsers take for granted.

Yup. It's pretty good, if you need something light to surf with. It does lack a lot of standard features though. The last time I used it I couldn't highlight text on a page to copy it into a text editor! :lol:

It would be nice if it got a little more attention though. There are a lot of really good low-end browsers that get no love because people are hypnotized by Firefox. ...

I have the 2.0 version downloaded. It's not rendering one of my favourite sites properly; though it's fine in the version available in the repos

There's also Skipstone, but that one's Gecko based.

And then there's the really promising stuff: Midori (http://www.twotoasts.de/index.php?/pages/midori_summary.html) and Arora (http://code.google.com/p/arora/).

Personally, I am enjoying Arora a lot.
