NetSurf - the RISC OS web browser


NetSurf is a new web browser for computers running RISC OS. This welcome page needs more work. In the mean time, why not visit the SourceForge development area?

To use NetSurf, type in a http:// or file:/ URL at the top of the window, then hit Return. Drag with Select or Adjust to highlight text; clicking Select clears any current selection. Click on a link with Select to follow it, or with Adjust to open it in a new window. Links are currently shown in bold and italic rather than the traditional underlined blue.

You can now quit NetSurf using the icon bar menu.
