As much as I think NetSurf is easily the best browser available on RISC OS, and probably has a lot of potential, I'm not sure that if we only have resources to pursue one browser on RISC OS, that NetSurf should be it.

In the shape of NetSurf we have a browser that has not had any RISC OS work done on it in quite some time. If that changes, and they get a RISC OS maintainer, then we'll still have a browser that is not capable of going on a lot of websites.

Maybe we'd be better off looking at Mozilla Fennec, which is like Firefox but aimed at smaller devices, or maybe Origyn, which is a portable version of WebKit.

  • Organizer not forgotten, says publisher
    Registered users of popular life management software Organizer have been assured that development of the program is on-going, reports Steve Potts. Nigel Willmott, who took over as Organizer publisher a while ago, said a programmer was "hard at work on a new version of Organizer for release soon", and called for users to send in their feature suggestions or offer to become beta testers.
