What is it? A web browser!
--------------------------

 NetSurf is a multi-platform web browser which is written with
 portability and speed in mind.
 This is the native Port for the FreeMiNT OS.
 More info at project website: www.netsurf-browser.org


Minimum System Requirements:
----------------------------

 - 32 MB RAM ( 48 MB recommended for demanding websites )
 - 32 MHz ( 60 Mhz recommended )
 - At least 15 Bit Graphics card.
 - FreeMiNT 1.17.0 release kernel (Please look at FAQ to read
   about TOS support) for full & correct network support.


Main Features:
--------------

 - Very good HTML 4 & CSS 2.1 rendering
 - HTTPS
 - Freetype2 font rendering


Missing Features:
-----------------

 This section describes Features that NetSurf-Core offers but which are not
 handled by the GEM frontend currently.

 - Grapical website history dialog


Installation Notes:
-------------------

 Unpack the compressed archive that you downloaded,
 change into the new directory and run ns.prg.
 If something isn't working - run ns.prg within an console and
 enable logging:

 ./ns.prg -v

 that makes it possible, that you can identify the problem.


Additional Notes
----------------

 If you would like to see the above mentioned features or
 can't run NetSurf because you only have a 16 or 256 Color system
 get in contact.

 Please also check the FAQ document.

 Want to have other software ported? Get in contact and make me rich >;-)
 If you want to help with netsurf, contact me for further info
 or visit the netsurf svn and add something usefull :)

 This is "just an early" alpha release. I wanted to get things moving on
 and I think it is good to show the Atari-Users what has been archived
 so far. This release lacks some features and some of the code written
 was just coded with an "I have to get this done quickly" attitude.
 This is especially true for the drawin routines... It doesn't offer
 offscreen bitmaps, which was one of my goals for a release. But
 I dropped that in favor of an not-so-delayed release.


Known Bugs
----------

 - "View Source" only works when the configured editor is already launched.
 - Wrong redraw area when parts of the window move out of the screen area.
