NetFront 3.5 Web Browser

Hi, I came across this on phonescoop.com. ACCESS built a web browser with pan/zoom functions sort of like iPhone's Safari or the upcoming Opera 9.5. The link to download it is here:

http://www.access-company.com/produc.../35_wm_tp.html

Looks like it has AJAX support but no plug-ins. Also there is a warning about the app being unstable if you install it to removeable storage.

I'm going to install this on my phone as soon as I'm out of work, if there are any problems, I'll post again....

thanks for the heads up, installing now!

edit: its definately a step in the right direction compared to past netfront versions.. although i still dont like how the address bar and top/bottom bars still take up precious space that can be used for web viewing. I know you can fullscreen but its cumbersome like any browser in fullscreen mode. The settings are very detailed and you can drop cache to any location you want. Text input into input boxes are direct unlike opera mini which is annoying. Still no flash. Its pretty fast and very smooth to scroll in a page, theres no "tearing" when sliding around. tabbed browsing is pretty clean and simple, i like that. the bookmark scroll feature is pretty tight as well.

I was just about to post the link to this! I just installed it and it works fine. I gotta check it out a little bit more, but it seems to work fine. It is worth a look at.

I wonder if they felt it neccessary to "skip" 3.4.. It was/is still technical preview yet they release this concept version...

Re: NetFront 3.5 Web Browser

I would like to have a full version of 3.5. If that is not possible i might think about going for 3.4 if its almost as good.

Re: NetFront 3.5 Web Browser

Been using the 3.5 for a few weeks now, and although I really like the browser, have found that the more I use it, the more weird problems I have on my phone (locks ups and otherwise "erratic" behavior).
