I feel there is still plenty of scope for a commercial RISC OS browser, but it has to offer:-

* Close to or better than FireFox's level of compliance with typical sites * Plugin components such as Flash * Better speed and responsiveness * Better integration with RISC OS (file saving, launching PDF readers etc) * Better quality of display

On the latter point O2 produces some of the most pleasing displays, as I have to say its TTF render lookes better than RISC OS font manager a lot of the time, especially when using TTF fonts that sites have specified in their design, such as Verdana on news.bbc.co.uk.
