On Oregano 3 survives user group meeting:

em2ac: Don't forget the majority of Oregan's busines is for porting the browser to STBs, which are typicaly around the sepcification of a SA RiscPC, with there customer expecting flash to perform as well as a desktop PC.

On Web browser offerings compared:

Why is it proper not to fill the entire screen?

Page 30 of the style guide says "Clicking Select or Adjust on a window's Toggle size icon toggles its size between a maximum size and a standard size". If a documents maximum size is grater than the screen (and for web pages this can be the case) then according to the style guide the propper thing to do is expand it to full screen. As with any rule there may be exceptions and handling of document with no fixed width may be one of them.

So in the case of a web browser both interpretations of the style guide are correct so lets not start slagging off users/applications just because they do not conform to our personal views of how RISC OS application should behave.
