Access recently made some information available about the next version of its NetFront browser for mobile devices. NetFront 4.0's major new feature is JavaScript performance that is 20 times faster than that of NetFront 3.5. This JavaScript improvement, combined with the smoothed web page scrolling, animated web page zooming, and smooth panning and navigating around web pages, greatly improves the mobile browsing experience. Access says that it is making a six-month trial version of NetFront 4.0 available to Windows Mobile devices starting today, with other platforms to follow in the coming months. Access is also offering a new API for NetFront 4.0, which will let network operators and handset makers upgrade their existing catalog of NetFront 3.5 devices to NetFront 4.0.

NetFront is better than OpenWave, but...

...they still need a lot of improvement to get near Nokia's browser for the s60 series or proxy-server browsers like Opera Mini.

Hopefully the latest upgrade will make it more usable for HTML.
