@GMMan: Well, it worked fine here but alright, thanks for fixing it for others.

@Palm_Pixi: Offline browsing/password manager: maybe. Tabs: no. I'm not gonna duplicate work from Advanced Browser.

@h3: I didn't update the version in the appinfo yet. Thanks for noticing.

UPDATE

Sparrow sharing now works. Grab the new IPK while it's hot!

----------------

Btw: what do you guys think? Shall I let the thread here or shall I move it to the webOS Development section?

Thanks, you should really consider adding those improtant features to the Isis Web app....specially offline browsing(which is good for those times without internet), a private browsing would be good for that browser, password manager as well. I was also thinking of "Reader View" allowing to read articles without ads like Safari for iOS.

And about the "Tabs" really don't understand why you won't implement such a feature for that Isis Web browser, considering that those developers had abandoned the platform and having more of choices to browse on the TouchPad is not bad. You could implement Tabs like on the iPad browser for "Puffin or Yahoo Axis" browser, that deals with tab like cards does for Palm WebOS. It has like a visual tab layout, and have the ability to flip through them or flick them out if you want to close them.

Well, Advanced Browser still gets support AFAIK. But I don't really see the benefit. Advanced Browser is quite slow with those tabs (and yes, I've used it for a long time) plus with LunaCE you can flick through your open browser cards much faster than switching tabs so unless you don't have LunaCE, I don't see how tabs improve it.

But I will look into offline support at least, then maybe private browsing after that and maybe Reader View, but I don't know yet how to implement that. Anyway, I'll go look into offline support first so that *may* be coming in the next few weeks

The only known compile of QTWebKit (what Isis uses) for webOS 3.0.5 (outside of what is going on in HP/webOS land, since I am not privy to that) so as far as I know is sitting on one of the build servers that I use. And, I can promise you, it crashes right when it tries to render a web page.

Not trying to steal any thunder or anything, I just don't want people to believe that they are installing Isis, when in fact they are only installing a small component of Isis...
dkirker, appreciate your efforts. I know you've been working on ISIS for almost a year.

Do you still think it might be possible to get this on 3.05? I'm asking as the browser is less and less functional for sites I visit on a few times a day so this is becoming more pressing.

Thanks!

If this is urgent, try using Firefox on Ubuntu chroot... otherwise yeah, it's coming, however at this time the build crashes as soon as it starts rendering a page. Like you, i'm looking forward to having a modern browser run natively under webOS...

He is working on it; just look at the Git page of OpenWebOS to see his codebase and that he constantly updates it

@Remy X: Or even better: Install Opera Mobile Emulator on Ubuntu chroot. It's a really lightweight emulator of the Android version of Opera Mobile and runs beautifully under Ubuntu chroot. That way you have modern browser with a touch-optimized interface that renders all websites just fine

think the native ubuntu and dev/emulator are x86 and ppc only, no arm packages?

Try browsing their downloads server: Index of /pub/opera

(I see a Meego ARMv7 package. A problem with trying to get packages not expressly compiled for webOS is dependency conflicts. You have to compile against the exact version of the system libraries for it to even start.)

Any chance of tweaking the stock browser into fooling websites to show it has the latest version of Flash Player?

No, you have to change the version string in the Flash player libs.

What version of Flash does the TP currently have? What websites you have problems with? I can have a look to see if I can binary patch it...

I thought it was at 10.3 while Android and Playbook have 11.1.

The new Spotify web player uses HTML5 so it can't be that they ask you to have the newest Flash player. It could be not working due the fact that HTML5 doesn't have a high score on stock browser/Isis Web.

maybe the chrome or firefox patches would work if not installed already? ive been on some sites that moaned about html5 and all they seemed to do was check what browser i had and nothing else.
