the browser, but thought, "Surely they don't have a layout engine that
can cope yet?" Most of the JS I've ever encountered is there for no
better purpose than producing flashy page transitions (a classic example
of style over substance, and the bane of the web), so presumably NetSurf
isn't much use at those yet.
I do hope it at least does something about the perennial curse of
"Warning: button could not be activated", though. Presumably mostly for
the benefit of these people:
