The rate at which features are being added to NetSurf is, indeed, admirable. The 'Full Save' option is useful, as it saves the HTML source plus associated graphics (which can then be dropped into EasiWriter for editing purposes, before printing). And I'm delighted to see 'Save as Draw' which I much miss when using Oregano 1 (currently, my main browser).

The 'Scale View' option is very useful too: when I first saw Opera (on Windows) that was *the* option that I really wanted...

NetSurf is pretty nippy too. Oh, I'd best back up that speed claim with some benchmarks, doncha think, in the light of previous threads? ;-)

Loading www.tesco.com (RISC OS 3.7, StrongARM 233)

NetSurf (4 Apr): 40 secs Oregano 1 (1.10): 50 secs Oregano 2 (2.2.18 rev 3: demo): 52 secs WebsterXL (1.99u7): 1 minute 55 secs Fresco (2.13): couldn't access full site

Of course, speed isn't everything, and the test build of NetSurf that I tried wasn't able to purchase anything (!), but I expect later versions (there are seemingly new versions every day) will fix that.
