During the holiday break the Raspberry Pi Foundation has unveiled a new web browser which has been designed for their awesome Raspberry Pi mini PC that is capable of supporting HTML 5.
The new Raspberry Pi web browser is currently still in its beta development stage but is already capable of supporting multi-tab surfing, ARMv6-optimized 2d rendering and accelerated image and HTML5 video decoding.
The new Raspberry Pi web browser is being created to eventually be included in future Raspbian releases which most of the development work already completed. The Raspberry Pi Foundation explains :
“Most of the work that has been done so far, over and above porting Web to Raspbian, revolves around memory footprint optimizations to support a usable number of tabs on the 512MB device without swapping. We haven’t finished the various acceleration tasks yet, so you’ll have to wait until the New Year to see a version which uses OpenMAX pipelines for media decode and has additional Pixman and Cairo assembly language fastpaths.”
