<p id="leader">Small as a mouse, fast as a cheetah and available for free. NetSurf is a multi-platform web browser for <a href="http://www.riscosopen.org/">RISC&nbsp;OS</a>, UNIX-like platforms (including Linux), Mac OS X, and more.</p>

<p>Whether you want to check your webmail, read the news or post to discussion forums, NetSurf is your lightweight gateway to the world wide web. Actively developed, NetSurf is continually evolving and improving.</p>

<h2 id="whynetsurf">Why choose NetSurf?</h2>

<dl class="motivation">
<dt>Speed</dt>
<dd>Efficiency lies at the heart of the NetSurf engine, allowing it to outwit the heavyweights of the web browser world. The NetSurf team continue to squeeze more speed out of their code.</dd>
<dt>Interface innovation</dt>
<dd>Simple to use and easy to grasp, NetSurf significantly raised the bar for user interface design on the RISC&nbsp;OS platform. Designed carefully by RISC&nbsp;OS users and developers to integrate well with the desktop, NetSurf is seen as the benchmark for future applications. NetSurf pioneered the concept of web page thumbnailing, offering an intuitive graphical tree-like view of visited web sites.</dd>
<dt>Lean requirements</dt>
<dd>From a modern monster PC to a humble 30MHz ARM 6 computer with 16MB of RAM, the web browser will keep you surfing the web whatever your system. Originally written for computer hardware normally found in PDAs, cable TV boxes, mobile phones and other hand-held gadgets, NetSurf is compact and low maintenance by design.</dd>
<dt>Portable</dt>
<dd>NetSurf can be built for a number of modern computer platforms 'out of the box'. Written in C, with portability in mind, NetSurf is developed by programmers from a wide range of computing backgrounds, ensuring it remains available for as many users as possible.</dd>
<dt>Standards compliant</dt>
<dd>Despite a myriad of standards to support, NetSurf makes surfing the web enjoyable and stress-free by striving for complete standards compliancy. As an actively developed project, NetSurf aims to stay abreast of new and upcoming web technologies.</dd>
