- What should be NetSurf's priority?
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. This year it's hoped budding engineers, who must first successfully apply for a place to work on the browser, will work on various improvements. What do you think the NetSurf team should be focusing development on?
