This thing is really good...

Just given it a go on my 9210 (v.4.13). And the verdict is...



It knocks spots off both the resident 9210 browser & the memory-sucking Opera (although I know that 9210i owners have less of the memory problem). It's fast-rendering, does that whole image rescaling & pagewidth formatting thing if you want it to, & has a laudable array of caching options. It also doesn't just sit there & groan if you run out of memory (but it does dump you back at the start page).

On the downside, it doesn't appear to pick up extra installed fonts & use them if the page requests them. I tried it with a web page of mine that uses a particular font that I have installed on my phone, & Opera handles it fine, but NF doesn't. Plus, Javascript rollover graphics don't seem to be handled too well: it sees something's going on, but the rollover seems switch to a placeholder that isn't dealt with (that may be a memory issue, though). Still, it's a damned fine first stab at a new feature-rich browser. If they can address these issues for the final release & perhaps add plugin support, I'd be willing to pay for it.

And to all 9210 owners: I seriously recommend trying this thing out.
