News nybble: NetSurf gains support for CSS Media Queries in version 3.9

A new version of NetSurf has been released into the wild, and as well as some general bug fixes and improvements, including to its JavaScript handling, this version also benefits from support for CSS Media Queries (level 4).

The term “CSS Media Queries” might seem a little meaningless to anyone who simply uses the browser to look at websites, but for people who design and maintain websites CSS Media Queries are a very useful tool in their armoury. They allow the layout of a page to be changed according to factors such as the width of the window – so, for example, a sidebar containing adverts might appear at the foot of the page instead.
