NetSurf brings CSS to AmigaOS 3.x

NetSurf CSS is a capable web browser for AmigaOS 3.x, that is ported by Artur Jarosik. NetSurf is originaly from Acorn’s RiscOS operating system that is now totally open source. The browser is currently the only CSS capable web browser for AmigaOS 3.x.

Not AmigaOS 4 code Related
This NetSurf version is based on SDL framebuffer frontend, but also adds more functions to the GUI. The 68k code is not related to NetSurf for OS4 and is not representative of
the user interface of NetSurf on any other platform.

You will need some RAM to get the browsing working more smooth. Most of the CSS sites now requires lots of MEM. Especially social media that can eat upto 600MB of RAM. NetSurf is however a very nice addon for those who loves to use AmigaOS daily. It is really nice to see AmigaOS platform beeing in fully development still in 2016 and a new browser is something that the platform needed badly before. Maybe NetSurf can really become the AmigaOS 3.x CSS browser!? Now it’s the chance for the browser to become that for sure!
