Netsurf 3.9 Released: lightweight multi-platform web browser

If you are getting bored with Chrome, Firefox or Edge you can try NetSurf browser, which is a fast, lightweight Web browser. NetSurf is designed to be highly portable and usable on any platform. The most remarkable about Netsurf is the very low use of RAM. A freshly started Firefox munches up 221 MB viewing the Wikipedia page, NetSurf only needs 76 MB. Multiply that over many tabs and you save a lot of memory. Netsurf does include HTTPS support, web page thumbnailing, URL completion, scale view, bookmarks, full-screen mode, keyboard shorts, and no particular GUI toolkit requirements. Another great advantage is the privacy it offers. Do Not Track is a technology and policy proposal that enables users to opt out of tracking by websites they do not visit, including analytics services, advertising networks, and social platforms. The big players such as Chrome or Edge offer similar functions; but you get the picture right? Although you might find Netsurf to suffer from rendering issues on certain sites, definitely give underdog NetSurf a try.
