NetFront Browser results on HTC Advantage X7501

Netfront_on_x7501In response to my recent HTC Advantage browser performance article, a reader by the name of MiniMage expressed an interest in seeing whether the NetFront Browser would hold its own against the others (Opera, Internet Explorer Mobile, Minimo, and Picsel).

It’s literally been years since I last used NetFront (I actually thought it was exclusive to the Sony Clie), so I did some googling and discovered a free technical preview download of NetFront 3.4 for Pocket PCs on the ACCESS website. The latest version is 3.5, but 3.4 seems to be the only one available for download directly from the company.

I ran the same tests on NetFront as I did on the other browsers and added the results to the original post. Aside from a few hiccups, such as taking over 2 minutes to load CNET, I think you’ll see that NetFront could give Opera some pretty fierce competition.

View the updated results.
