GTK NetSurf Downloads

Latest development source
Bleeding-edge source code is available for those that want to try the latest experimental features.

The Netsurf GTK toolkit front end is targeted at systems that provive a Unix-like environment, such as Linux, OpenBSD, FreeBSD, NetBSD, Solaris and similar.

GTK version 3 is built by default but version 2 can be used if desired.

Some operating systems include NetSurf such as Debian packages and OpenBSD ports. If these are up to date then they are probably the best to use.

A flatpak is available.

If none of these options are suitable a build from source will be necessary.

Framebuffer NetSurf

There are actually two versions of NetSurf available for Unix-like systems. In addition to the GTK front end, which is for normal desktop usage, there is a framebuffer front end for NetSurf which requires no windowing environment or GUI toolkits. It currently supports SDLv1.

Please obtain the latest source, if you want to play with the framebuffer build.
