NOTE: this is NOT the new WebKit, dkirker is taking care of porting that over.
ISIS WEB IS (temporarily) DISCONTINUED. I'm very upset with webOS' future at this point in time. I've tried to hold on as long as possible, waaaay beyond HP gave up on webOS. The forums embraced webOS TV but I hate webOS TV. I want the real webOS on a real phone and/or tablet. Until the day good ol' webOS returns on such form factor, Isis Web is discontinued.
Why would I want this over the stock web browser?
Well, this is basically the stock web browser but with some advantages. For example, you no longer need the Download Link patch because that's already built-in, you get advantage of the nice new Sharing dialog (so you can actually choose where you want to share a URL: E-mail, Messaging, Sparrow or Facebook Tablet) and some other nice stuff!
How do I get this?
Just open up your web browser and download the IPK from the URL further down this post. You can then install the IPK via Preware.
After installing an app named 'Isis Web' will appear on the DOWNLOADS tab. Go ahead and open it!
