In his memo to fellow NetSurf coders, John-Mark said: "It must be stressed that the views contained within this document are those of the author alone - nothing is set in stone. This document aims to stimulate the debate surrounding the goals for future NetSurf releases. Criticism and new ideas are welcome."
As well as highlighting the strengths of NetSurf, John-Mark also pointed out that the browser was "particularly picky" about badly written web pages, could be made to run faster, and does not fully support CSS 2. He also suggested better handling of XHTML, amongst other improvements for the software, as well as touching on Flash, plugins and broken printing support on RISC OS 5.
