Web browser: NetSurf 3.8 updated again (SDL version) (Update)
A few days ago Artur Jarosik has released a new update of his Amiga port of the web browser NetSurf. His port uses SDL, only the preferences pane is based on MUI, and is not to be confused with the Chris Young's native, Reaction-based version.

Our editor Daniel Reimann has tested the update on his Amiga 1200 equipped with Blizzard-1230 accelerator board and Amiga OS 3.9. Additional to bug fixes (details under the title link) now Netsurf again can access https websites. The required "ca-bundle" file in the "resources" folder was missing in the archives before.

Starting Netsurf on the Amiga1200 proved to be rather difficult. Often Netsurf loaded and stopped doing it with a black screen. It also could happen that the first blank screen was loaded and then the icons of the menu appeared very slowly: Loading an icon took several seconds. But if Netsurf properly started then the browser runs stable. Compared with the native version, this SDL port provided by Artur Jarosik presents the website in a more comfortable way: The characters are clear and the sites are viewed in a compact design (screenshots:,

Surprisingly Netsurf takes "only" 37 seconds to load which is a https connection (pictures enabled, pictures disables it takes about 32 seconds) but loading it takes 60 seconds (53 seconds without pictures). Working with the SDL version of Netsurf is quite confortable because the websites are scaled in this way that you do not have to scroll across. I guess that this operation is more complex at the website.

In order to exclude the reasons of instability during the start process are due to the special configuration environment of the Amiga1200, our editor would be grateful for feedback in the comment section, e.g. by users working with emulators.

Update: (17:28, 18.11.18, snx)
