PalmSource Picks Web Browser for Palm OS 5
NetFront 3.0 will be the default web browser in Palm OS 5.0, according to eWeek. PalmSource has not confirmed this.
NetFront isn't currently available as a stand-alone Palm application. Instead, it has been designed to run on all types of embedded systems, from mobile phones to TV set top boxes. It supports a laundry list of web standards.
NetFront was designed from the ground up to meet the requirements of resource-constrained devices. It provides high-performance capabilities with a very limited resource footprint.
Access Systems America, developer of NetFront, is a subsidiary of Access Co. of Japan, which makes NTT DoCoMo's i-mode phones
