NetSurf reaches version 2.0

Published: 28th Apr 2009, 01:48:41 | Permalink | Printable

The latest milestone release of the open source web browser for RISC OS, Linux, AmigaOS and other platforms is now available for download. After almost two years of work by volunteer programmers, the team have announced a new HTML parser, SVG support, PDF export, improved page layout and a more complete GTK interface - full details here. Also: a new version of Tinct, a module used by NS for displaying images on RISC OS, is also available for download. Among other updates, Tinct now supports RISC OS 6's new 64K-colour screen modes.

Faster than something slower, obviously. :)

Shame I couldn't make the show - it would have been nice to have bought a NetSurf 2 CD numbered 001 to go with my NetSurf 1 CD with the same number. ;)

Doesn't seem any faster than 1.2 to me, but it doesn't seem any slower, either, on a SA233 RiscPC.
