Mart: I'm afraid you didn't answer my question. Again, exactly why wouldn't a Firefox port be able to keep up with the "latest standards"?

As for NetSurf, it's a very fast and designed for RISC OS, but it'll never been as comprehensive in features, because of the correct response to your above claim. I'm afraid also your claim about NetSurf is not Firefox (which is certainly true in pretty much every respect in regards to code specific to it) belies an understandable ignorance of the development process of porting, and the various libraries involved.
