hEgelia: Col1: I see that again people are demanding things of RISCOS Ltd that are not their province. Indeed, when the company was forst incorporated there was a pledge that they would *not* develop or sell software other than the OS and it's associated apps because they didn't want to be inconflict with mainstream software companies. The Ant suite was a slight departure from this but it's hardly 'state of the art' and so doesn't relly count.

There are four 'current' browsers for RISC OS, two free and two commercial, and some people seem to think that ROL should be going into competition with these people to produce yet another browser. I find it entertaining that this is at the same time as people are moaing about the duplication of effort over the OS fork.
