Access (right, the guys who recently bought PalmSource) finally made the Access NetFront 3.3 browser technical preview available for public download.
NetFront v3.3 for Pocket PC was developed based on standard Internet protocols and supports the latest standard markup languages: HTML (HyperText Markup Language), XHTML (Extensible HyperText Markup Language) and WAP2.0 (WML1.3). It also can display pages to which CSS (Cascading Style Sheet), ECMAScript (JavaScript), DOM (Document Object Model) or DHTML (Dynamic HTML).

Sine it is a technical preview only, it's time-bombed (works until 15. November) and also not all features are included yet (like Java- or Flash-support) but it already includes a couple of new promising features like: supports VGA, Smart Frame Operation, Web Data & Password Manager, Popup Blocker, as well as it supports RSS and Atom Feeds and includes a NetFront SMIL Player and a NetFront SVG Viewer.

However, it looks as it isn't supporting Windows Mobile 5.0 yet, which would be a shame since it would be the perfect browser to enhance the HTC Universal but I don't get it running on my Universal yet. :-(

NetFront 3.3 Technical Preview can be download from Access, free of charge.

Cheers ~ Arne

Thanks for the news.  I'm giving it a try now.  I wish I still had a VGA PPC to try it out on.  Oh well.

Too bad even this new version doesn't support WM5.

yes, it does work on wm5 devices (works on my ppc 6700)!
