General settings

Block popups
By default, NetFront allows additional windows popping up, for this is required by some web sites. You may turn pop-ups off or allow only specific ones by deciding on the certain case.

JavaScript
JavaScript can be enabled or disabled. Many pages on the Internet use JavaScript for dynamic features. To save memory you might want to switch off JavaScript support. In "Text-Only" mode JavaScript is disabled.

Cookies
Cookies are small files created by some Web servers to store for example user data for certain Web services so that such data does not have to be entered every time you visit the page.
If set to Allow, cookies will be stored on your device. Reject disables cookies so that they cannot be stored. Ask forces the browser to show a dialog whenever a server tries to send a cookie.

Cache size (KB)
Allows size definition of cache, a buffering space for accessing retrieved data.

Cache location
Select where cache must be located, either on phone RAM (C: and D: drive) or memory card (E: drive)

Display settings

Load images
To reduce data traffic you might want to disable the automatic download of images. With Load images set to None, placeholder icons are shown instead of images. With Load images set to On scroll, only those images are loaded that are currently visible on the screen. Other images will be loaded as you scroll through the page. Setting Load images to all provides the most accurate rendering but depending on the number and size of images on the page it is also the slowest mode.

Default font size
Define the default font size for normal text and choose from Small, Medium, or Large.

Text wrapping
If you switch text wrapping on, each last word not fitting into a line will be moved to the next line. Otherwise the last word of each line will be separated, without consideration of hyphenation rules.

Scroll speed
This switch changes the speed by which you can scroll through pages.

Use user style sheet
The user style sheet can be used to control the appearance of Web page elements as its definitions can overwrite the definitions in a Web page. For example, you may define how links or headlines look like. You can also use this switch to temporally switch off your user style sheet without loosing the information entered in the style sheet.

Style sheet data
Define the local style sheet data here. This definition concerns the appearance of a page, like color of text, hyperlinks or background, as well as different heading formats or the representation of highlighted frames.

Connection settings

Default Connection
Lets you define one of the internet access points as a standard that is automatically used for Internet connections. If you leave Default access point to “Off” you will always be asked which access point to use when an Internet connection needs to be established.

User Agent
When Internet users visit a web site, a text string is generally sent to identify the user agent to the server. NetFront user agent setting can be switched to IE5, IE6, NS4, NS/, and NetFront. Changing the default setting from NetFront to a different value sometimes helps passing by problems with certail websites , likes login pages.

Certificates settings

The Certificates settings allow you to view details of a certificate and charge its validity status.
