Google to fund another round of NetSurf developmentBy Michael Drake. Published: 22nd Mar 2009, 22:49:15 | Permalink | Printable
Development work on the open source NetSurf web browser project will once again be funded by Google as part of the internet giant's Summer of Code scheme. NetSurf has been accepted into this year's GSoC, which pays students to develop open source software during their holiday, under the guidance of a mentor. Last year the NetSurf project mentored four students in the development of various improvements including a new HTML parser and PDF export functionality. This year it's hoped budding engineers, who must first successfully apply for a place to work on the browser, will work on keyboard shortcut support, improvements to the way the software displays web pages, a Windows and Apple port and more.
