You needed to extract the file and put the extracted directory to USB's root. :)

Actually, the file/folder doesn't need to be at the root (at least, not with T-CHL7DEUC). I have all of my extensions under /SamyGO folder on my 4GB flash drive and it finds all the content within a couple of seconds. Could be a bit slower if you had a big hard drive to search - probably better to keep files close to the root. I actually had both versions stored (with different folder names, and clmeta.dat files edited to change the names), so it's possible to test different options. You just need to remember to include the path in any configs.

Now my feedback. Thanks to ffischer for this. I had a problem getting the keyboard to work on first release - the only key that worked was Escape! However, it seems to have come good with 2nd release.

Keyboard observations: not as per NetSurf documentation
F1 - "back" page key, same as green "arrow" icon
F2 - cursor mode toggle, same as icon at right of address bar
Enter key - now works in URL bar, but not in Google search box (OK as these have clickable buttons)
Home key - Home page!
No shift key - left and right give "3" and "/" in address bar, unprintable characters elsewhere. This makes it impossible to fully type a url (can't do a colon ":"), though you can just edit an existing one - or put a template into the bookmarks.
No caps either, of course
Escape key - exits application back to Game menu
Can't edit URLs using cursor - only backspace works

I tried two mice and both worked OK. Scroll wheel works, according to cursor mode. Right click seemed to do same as left-click. Middle-click button had no function, neither did "back" or "forward" buttons, but then these are usually set in proprietary drivers.

Initially, many bookmarked pages seemed not to load, just showing blank space with background colour. :( Eventually, I realised I only needed to "Page Up/Down" or scroll to see the page content. :) With that method, most pages displayed OK. One with constant refresh slowed down the cursor response. A couple of times the application froze and needed a power-reset. Overall, I found the application quite useable for basic browsing, despite the limitations. Definitely a worthwhile effort.

Even if it's not practical to implement media play plugins for this browser, it could still be used for management of web-enabled media players with playback through Media Play or Widgets. I tried to access a TVersity server admin page, but it didn't load. The new Drivecast widget is also managed via the web, though I couldn't log in - maybe it needs https, or cookies.

I wasn't able to telnet to the TV after loading this application. Don't know if that was just a local issue - maybe someone else can check.

I looked at the log file and I saw that instead of sda1 it is like sdh, sdi and etc. But everytime I change the line at the netsurf folder, the letters at the log file are changing also. Anyway, I have no info about linux and maybe it is because of that.
I also saw that, though I didn't check the log files. It was working part of the time while I was changing between versions. I couldn't see anything wrong with the Options format. What editor did you use?

I put the bookmarks file in the root folder to simplify and it's working OK on "release 2". Note that if you install more than one copy of NetSurf folder on the drive, you can modify Options for each to give you a different home page for each version. You can rename the applications in clmeta.dat.

I have tried NetSurf on LNxxA850. I managed to run it after repackaging the content to A-compatible game format. Unfortunately it crashes. Here is the log file:

you should get your self notepad++ for windows, it has some options for formatting text, ANSII Unicode etc.
had no problems with it and TV files.
