    It would be really great if Opera would support webOS. I know its a long shot but i think if we show them there is demand it may be worth a shot..

    there is a discussion on it here: Opera for webOS (Palm Pre, Pixi, Veer, Pre 3, Touchpad, Pre 2, etc) - Mobile wish-list - Opera Community

    the least we can all do is show our interest?

    To go with this, we also need the ability to select the default browser. Hopefully openwebOS will allow this.

    That can surely be patched? I will admit i do not know that much about coding but surely with webOS now being open source Opera would have everything they need to get their browser on the touchpad.

    Also with no other competition I'm sure many people would spend 5 for a decent broswer

    I'm all in! Long time Opera user.
    And played with the version on iPad2 at friends house. Like it much more than mobile safari of course.
    Pretty nice interface and snappy

    If they don't PDK it, then we can patch it to make it default (just like the patch in Preware to make Advanced Browser default).

    yeah, i tried to drum up support for this about 4 months ago or so. nobody here seemed really interested in trying to convince them or any other browser developer to port it to webos.

    You can make the browser show up as available to set as default in Settings, Device Info, Default Applications by adding the mime types to the appinfo.json file. I did that with Advanced Browser before the patch came out and it worked fine. Here is the first part of my old file.

    "mimeTypes":[{"urlPattern":"^https?:"},
    {"mime":"text/html","extension":"html"},
    {"mime":"text/html","extension":"htm"},
    {"mime":"application/xhtml+xml","extension":"xhtml"}],
    "id": "com.maklesoft.browser",
    "version": "1.2.5",
    "vendor": "MaKleSoft",
    "type": "web",
    "main": "index.html",
    "title": "Advanced Browser",
    "icon": "icon.png",
    "splashicon": "icon-256x256.png",
    "uiRevision": 2,
    "copyright": "&copy; 2011 MaKleSoft",

    The stuff before the "id": "com.maklesoft.browser", makes it show up as a choice. Once you do that you won't have to add it again even if the app updates.

    That's because Advanced Browser is a native app. I was talking about PDK-apps. Read next time.
