Well I appreciate that...the like...and the thanks...or which ever one you would like me to appreciate.

Hey, I'm ready to donate my special $5...who is going to be the one who guesses the Movie reference? I've got an itchy trigger finger on my proton pack, just waiting to pull the trigger...anybody? Bueller? No, it's not Ferris Bueller's day off.

By the way, Thank you Rod and company for your untiring efforts to build up webOS and keep US going (uh, not the U.S.A...I mean us...the collective body of believers in webOS)! And please, everyone who can spare some money, let's help webOS Internals achieve the goal by donating to their hard work.

Here's a link to the donate thread!

Your Ghostly reference to a long since Busted movie was quite refreshing.

You got it and so I donated the $5 for your efforts, plus a little more just because I felt it was the right thing to do...wonder what's wrong with me? Must be the ectoplasm talking...

To top it off, I totally screwed up my second post! I said I thanked it and then said Tapatalk didin't support Thanks. DUH.

Bottom line, I LIKED the movie reference, and even read it in Peter Venkman's voice.

I was a little confused about the thanking issue...but again, I attribute it to the ectoplasm. Gotta stop drinking that stuff before 3pm. Thank you for reading it with the proper lackadaisical urgency [paradox for sure] of Peter Venkman's voice.

I apologize for spilling the ectoplasm which allowed this thread to slide a little off kilter, but it is for a good cause. I will try to restrict myself to more technically helpful posting in such a thread...which translates to little to nothing at all! I'm just a Pre+ (VZW, day 1) user, no TP (although I've tried to acquire firesale units several times, having one in my cart one time for a few minutes).

Let me just say that I am encouraged to see some headway, some hope, some activity that appears to be following an announced plan of action. This is something that has been lacking in the webOS world...except for the Homebrew and webOS Internals folks have always been active and been showing results. Good on ya! And if any of you haven't yet contributed to the cause, please do! The link to the donation link or donation thread is a few posts up from here (Post #101 has a link)...just past the ectoplasm stain...

Aaww.. but it's often the only chance Geeks and Nerds get to actually 'socialise'!


Wasn't it once all about something to do with a 'Browser'?

Ecto-Browser.. that's it!

Time for more uninformed speculation - what will QtWebKit bring to WebOS?

Faster rendering speed & HTML5 capabilities?
QtWebKit kicking *** & taking names - YouTube

Would WebGL + HTML5 be possible?

just the fact its open to modification/enhancements is enough, its 1 thing patching what we have its another when its all open to change at its core.

I had some kind of mess requiring a doctor visit recently some of which prompted posters to suggest it was my attempt to load ISIS on my 3.0.5 machine prematurely ...is this ready for prime time or do I need to wait to see it in the HP App catalog or Preware ??

I wouldn't consider any app as ready for prime time unless it is in the HP App catalog or the Preware stable feeds.

Edited to add: Please review the preware eightfold path http://testing.preware.org/

I always assume that downloading random ipks from the forums is riskier than the preware alpha feed.

Correct me if i'm wrong, but released versions of webOS use hardware GPU acceleration. I would be surprised if anything uses hardware acceleration unless it's coded to. Perhaps that is what the "webkit supplemental" project is (at least partly)? Isis Project

I'm sorry. I can't read every post in this thread and I hope I'm not asking what may have already been asked.
1st I'm more than willing to wait until the browser is ready for install via preware.
My question is this. I thought I read somewhere that the new browser will be microsoft silverlight compatible or something like that but does that mean it will be able to play movies on netflix?

To the knowing people: How high are chances that QtWebkit and Javascript Core are able to run on the webOs phones and replace the webkit engine there?

who knows, but the version mentioned here is for 3.0.5 so touchpad only atm, not a hell of a lot has been said phone wise in a positive note on HP's side, last i heard their all for tablets, and pretty much given up on phones. For some kind of chance im guessing the upcoming fully released open webOS 1.0 would be the better chance for new life on a palm/hp phone if/when someone tries to cram it into a phone instead of a tablet.

I accept that ...I am one who reads this site avidly to try to take advantage of the latest stuff for my webOS devices ...this time it bit me in the **** ...but it does demonstrate the incredibly hardy aspect of this including the ability to doctor with little if any misery to reconstruct and be up and running quickly ...I am impressed with that and also with the circumscribed group of people who are hanging on here waiting for the break-out of open source (why it takes so long, I don't know)...I look at this and android (I put on the excellent cyanogen mod for that purpose) and cannot see why one would choose the latter! In that android is open source, I have to anticipate that this obviously (to me) superior operating system and interface will flourish and maybe prevail what with a cadre of very experienced palm people I surmise waiting in the wings seething (chomping at the bit) at the gate for the opportunity to spill out their wares ...surely there are a bunch of things ready for primetime ...

From what I understand, they have a lot of customization to webkit for the webOS UI, so if it is possible, it will require porting those, or eliminating their need.
