A new public beta version of the web browser Sputnik has been released. Sputnik is based on KHMTL / Webcore, thus shares a substantial amount of source code with Apple's Safari and KDE's Konqueror. Despite its beta status, Sputnik features by far the most modern browser engine available to MorphOS users today.

Changes in the third beta include but are not limited to the following items:

* greatly enhanced stability
* reduced memory usage
* upgraded to a more recent browser engine version
* improved overall speed
* added context menus
* websites featuring dynamic content work much better now
* improved download manager
* added toolbar graphics
* added support for favicons
* improved frames support
* improved support for CP-125X
* fixed a large amount of bugs (redirections, SSL, settings, JavaScript, image rendering and a lot more)
* added a new about:info page
* added lamps that indicate the current loading status when accessing data on the internet
* extended the included ARexx port

This is certainly an interesting application as a fast, up-to-date browser is one of the most important things on any platform nowadays. (Opera is imho closest to a good browser, but closed source.)

As gnash is slowly evolving into something usable, there are no more disadvantages of PPC compared with X86.
