Excellent news. I still wonder how fast it is compared to the likes of NetSurf or UPP Firefox. I myself find [link] a preferred way of testing a browser's compatibility with (partially) unproper websites.

I think it is pretty safe to say O3 will be developed until O4 comes out. Certainly, some things will or cannot be done in O3, so they might end up in O4 which also leaves room for commercial sustainability. Indeed, GeneSys is working hard to provide us with a quality web browser, featuring key benefits from both NetSurf and UPP Firefox, since they both act as catalysts for O3's level of compatibility in terms of sites and the RO GUI.

Just for reference... "Updates for Oregano 1 stopped because the code was being rewritten to be portable, and updates for Oregano 2 stopped because large sections of the code was rewritten to add support for CSS 2 and DOM 2 (This took slightly longer than expected).

Now that the above work has been completed there shouldn't be a need for any major code changes for the forseeable future. So upgrades for Oregano 3 should be available at about the same time as they are released for the other platforms supported."
