yeah but in the case of netflix its not a user agent issue, we just dont have ms silverlight on our os for the webapp to work with (or we would already be doing so on ubuntuchroot or any linux os), and we dont have a native app so netflix will never work for us, open webos or otherwise.

Is not important to me if the iOS or Android works so fast as light speed or so low than increase in my payments here, in my job... the important to me is the Touchpad browser works each time better.


Best Regards...

Shouldn't Silverlight be possble on *nix using Moonlight?

With regards to native app: Someone could decompile the Android and/or iOS version and see if they can get something working for webOS?

If someone did that, they couldn't redistribute it so it wouldn't matter.

You're right - I can remember having seen this random reloading on my Preł only. Thank you for your explanation about the memory issue.

There's an additional issue I have observed recently: sometimes the focus is tied to a browser card which is not in the foreground and I have no idea how to remove the focus from it. Usually I restart Luna to solve the problem. Is this a known issue?

Moonlight doesn't support DRM, so that's a no-go.

wow, thanks for clarifying. So I guess the best is to use the linux browsers firefox and chromium as ancillary supports to get around webOS issues.

I don't know what technology preview means unless it is a preview to the isis version on openwebos 1.0? or a preview to later versions of openwebos browsers eventually coming down the pike?



Just to complete my list of issues I found when traveling--the myooma refused to login also on the webos browser but did fine on the ubuntu browsers.

Have you tried this new in browser html5 game MS released yesterday Contre Jour? On TouchPad is loading and rendering OK but is unplayable. On Ipad is running great but it'ss not rendered so nicely.
