I've uploaded a simple NetSurf theme (just a Spritefile) at
To install, drag the !NetSurf dir over the top of your application,
select Choices from the iconbar>Themes>Metal, quit and reload.
Based on MIT's Galeon project's Remembrance theme, with an original
throbber I'm getting to like :-)
Please let me know likes or dislikes. The whole thing is very beta and
will be adapted as Netsurf grows/changes.
Bearing in mind what JMB said to us at the SAUG a few days ago, I assume
that you want a new development rather than a port of the Mozilla one.
I spent a very interesting and mostly enjoyable couple of years a while
ago writing a BASIC subset compiler, so I have some comprehension of the
scale of the work and some of the issues involved.
I've been wondering about the interface between the main part and the
JS part. I imagine being passed a pointer to a script tag, and passing
back such things as HTML, requests for fetches, etc, being called
repeatedly until I report that I've finished and pass back a pointer
to the text after the closing tag. I need to know the context (header
or body) and a unique ID for the page, and I need to be called when the
page is closed. Does that make sense?
As it says in the subject, the problem with connecting NetSurf through
IPCop has gone. This is probably due to a change in v1.4.0, which I've
just installed to replace the 1.3 installation I had before.
A nice'n'easy installation, with the only complication being my not
RTFM on my ADSL modem before I did it. Leaving that aside, it was back
up in an hour. Strongly recommended.
I can't get to the management pages, though. The error is
"SSL certificate problem, verify that the CA cert is OK"
IE also muttered about this, but I can tell it to ignore things like
that on my local network.

Having downloaded the latest version of NetSurf I have discovered that
it no longer loads Draw files nor does it print (simply outputs a blank
sheet). The previous version that I have which does work ok is Test
Build 25 Sept 2004 00:00.
I have not downloaded inbetween versions as I have been on holiday.
Can someone please investigate.
I read about your efforts to create a browser in Archive
so I thought I'd give it a try
At first it wouldn't run without a !System merge
This I carried out as instructed
When I tried it again I got the following error message
File 'System:Modules.URI' not found
Can you tell me where I can find this file and
what to do with it when I've got it.
Could proxy authentication move from a configuration option to a pop up
window? This isn't related to my own problem (which I still have to do a
report thing on), but to a site I was at yesterday. They're running
Navaho as a filter to stop unsecure access by kids to the 'net. Each
user needs to log on to Navaho to authenticate. Other browsers pop up a
login window when necessary, rather than requiring people to navigate
to a specific config page. The same site has a load of NCs, which might
benefit from the same functionality.
I suppose the issue is serial users rather than people having their own
machine, and is specific to education.

With versions of Netsurf later than the middle of October I find that this
site, which makes heavy use of CSS, gives me white text on a white
I know that something has been fetched, as moving the cursor across the
white page produces links - but if I follow these I get further white
pages. A September version of Netsurf does things correctly. This is the
only site that I have found that gives this problem.

I've just discovered that www.tesco.com/entertainment causes
NetSurf (latest build at time of writing) to terminate and it
seems to be perfectly repeatable.
If it doesn't happen on your machine, let me know how
I can help.
