Additional key features include Atom Feed, a file format for content distribution via XML used to access popular Weblogs, support for international domains, encryption and saving of Web data with a specified URL, and management of Web data and passwords.

NetFront v3.3 browser engine adds to the feature-set already supported by NetFront browser which includes support for WAP 2.0, WML, HTML 4.01, and cHTML as well as unique technologies like Rapid-Render, an incremental rendering technology that significantly accelerates the presentation of Web pages, and Smart-Fit Rendering, a rendering technology that intelligently renders Web pages to fit the screen width of mobile devices, eliminating the need for horizontal scrolling. NetFront is also the only mobile browser in the world to provide integrated support for Adobe Reader and Adobe's ubiquitous portable document format (PDF).
