Netfront updated for Pocket PC


Netfront has long been a good browser for the Pocket PC but has never worked in VGA under Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition.  That is, until this new version 3.2 that I just happened to see on the Access web site.  It’s in Japanese but it does say it supports WM2003SE so that should mean the native VGA support is there.  I haven’t tried it yet but will do so and report here how it works on a VGA PPC.

like I said roughly translated…


I installed this version of Netfront. The browser looks good…However, everything is in Japanese and I didn’t have the time to try and figure out how to configure it…

I ran it in VGASE Landscape mode and the location bar is normal sized and the web pages look nice…

I uninstalled it and I’ll wait for the english version to come out…

Thanks for the link, now I know to keep my eye out for the english version.
