ACCESS's NetFront browser hits Android
The Android platform is opening up its arms as yet another web browser that is attempting to make its stance on the operating system. Already heading straight into the heart of competition, ACCESS's NetFront browser is going to take its shot at the title of finding itself as the home browser that Android owners rely on. NetFront 3.5 will be given to wireless network operators and handset manufacturers – allowing them to customize the browser to live up to their own branding and content services needs. In addition, ACCESS plans on providing the open platform with its FlexUI, widget, document viewer, and EPUB Book Viewer. Many people may be familiar with the web browser already as it extends NetFront's capabilities to any OS or CPU – supporting platforms like Symbian, Windows Mobile, and BREW. CEO and co-founder of ACCESS, Tomihisa Kamada, stated that “ACCESS offers end-to-end solutions for converged devices, starting from the infrastructure layer to platform and middleware, to client applications. Since this company was founded, we have worked closely with major operators and equipment and device manufacturers all over the world to help them differentiate their products and improve their competitiveness. This announcement underscores our commitment to provide our customers with technologies that support a variety of platforms.” Although it's already one crowded market they're planning on venturing in, let's hope that the transition is smooth – resulting in one fine experience for Android users out there.
