||AmigaOS 3/4: New Netsurf test build|
In May 2020 the version 3.10 of the ReAction-based Amiga port of the web browser Netsurf was released. Until the next official release 3.11, so-called test builds are published by the developers, which already include changes but may still contain bugs.
After a longer break, Chris Young has now updated the build version #5314 with the root certificates, which are included in the currently current version #5318. When asked, Chris Young explained to us that especially the OS3 version has to be considered as a pure test version - 'very alpha/beta quality'. Furthermore, he holds out the prospect of a possible special AmigaOS 3.2 version, should it prove true that the ReAction gadgets and his workarounds for the old versions are the cause of the instability.
A short test of the OS4 version first takes us to our main page, which loads without problems. When selecting a single message, three or four seconds pass:
Well remembered is that GitHub pages often cause difficulties (under previous Wayfarer versions sometimes no text was visible), so we test the link to Dirk Hoffmann's MacOS emulator vAmiga:
