Access releases Netfront 3.2 for Windows Mobile Pocket PC
Access is making a new version of its Netfront web browser available. The new version runs on Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition based devices, and the main new feature is support for Pocket PC with VGA screens.

This version include Smart-Fit Rendering, a sophisticated technology that intelligently renders Web pages to fit screen widths found in mobile devices, and Rapid-Render, an advanced rendering technology that progressively renders Web page content, giving the user a faster initial version with text before downloading images and other content.

As in previous versions, Netfront 3.2 supports helper applications (external applications that handle special file types) like Pocket Word, Adobe Acrobat Reader or Media Player, plug-in applications (in-line applications that handle content) like Macromedia Flash Player (downloaded separately) and Java J2ME. The Java VM is supplied with some versions and is based on JV-Lite2 CE Edition.

As part of the user interface the software offers tabbed browsing and a search bar that can be configured to access Google, Yahoo! or InfoSeek results. It is also possible to zoom in and out, and to drag the page contents on the screen using the stylus for easier viewing of content.

Netfront 3.2 also offers better Microsoft Outlook Web Access (OWA) support, and provides the framework for client certificate-based authentication.

The browser supports many standards, including HTML4.01, XHTML1.1, ccHtml, XHTML Basic 1.0, WML1.3, CSS 1 & 2, JavaScript 1.5, DOM1, 2 and Dynamic HTML, GIF and animated GIF, BMP, PNG and JPEG and MNG, HTTP1.1, SSL2.0/3.0, TLS1.0 and cookies.

The software is currently available in Japanese, and current registered owners of Access Netfront 3.1 will have to buy a new licence with possible discount.
