Access offers NetFront v3.4 browser preview


Access might sound familiar; they’re the folks that bought the Palm OS. However, they also developed a solid web browsing client for Windows Mobile devices some years back. The NetFront browser didn’t get updated often, but many folks sung its praises. Looks like the venerable app is poised for a comeback as the::unwired caught a company press release: Access is offering a new version of NetFront as a technical preview and you can try it for free right here.

You’ll need a Windows Mobile 5 device and you’ll have to hurry: the preview expires at the end of this month! I noticed that the browser supports the HTML, XHTML and WAP2.0 standards. Better yet: NetFront also works with "CSS (Cascading Style Sheet), ECMAScript (JavaScript), DOM (Document Object Model), or DHTML (Dynamic HTML)" which should make for very functional browsing.
