    I've thought about upgrading the main browser (and am still exploring it). However, there is one major downside (especially for Pre3 users), and that is memory. Without upgrading the WebKit that LunaSysMgr uses you run in to the same issue with things being slow with running a separate browser app because two (different) versions of WebKit exist in memory at the same time.
    Did you know:

    webOS ran on a Treo 800 during initial development.

    The font rendering is (obviously) a known issue. As I understand it, this has already been fixed, but not yet released as other fixes are in progress.

    Yes. I suppose with a system that's actually called 'webOS' the webkit is a major component and as you write, running two versions may not be practical. Perhaps a new thread to discuss this is needed. But it could be that Qt may have advantages beyond the browsers and refining those browsers is the simplest solution.

    At the same time , instead, having a newer webkit would allow to get back the captive portal functionality, probably.

    Start a new thread on it!

    Unfortunately they forked webkit for webOS use, and it would probably be a monumental effort to make their changes work in the later webkit versions. Some might not even be possible.

    OK, I made the thread: https://forums.webosnation.com/webos...acy-webos.html

    I listed some questions, then quoted some of the above to get it up to speed. I'm happy to change the questions if there are better ones to ask, but I'll leave it to the technical experts to continue the discussion.

    Having another go at installing this on my Pre3, since it was updated. I tried installing in the order specified in this thread:

    1. org.webosinternals.dbus
    2. com.nizovn.cacert
    3. com.nizovn.glibc
    4. com.nizovn.openssl
    5. com.nizovn.qt5qpaplugins
    6. com.nizovn.qt5
    7. com.nizovn.qt5sdk
    8. com.nizovn.qtwebbrowserpalm


    It always fails with QT5 Framework Libraries (com.nizovn.qt5). I've tried installing from Preware, WOSQI and using the palm-install command line tool directly against the IPK downloaded from Nizovn's GitLab page on my computer. In Preware, it appears to install, but then on a reboot, its gone. From the command line, I get:

    Code:
    installing package com.nizovn.qt5_5.9.7-0_armv7.ipk on device "mantaray-linux" {7d9a8ae1569d147ca1e404ebc2e0580f3c34a273} usb 54679
    palm-install: install failed with status: FAILED_IPKG_INSTALL
    From Preware, I get "Package Dependencies not satisfied" -- but other than files 1-5, I can't find any reference to any other dependency to go get.

    Update: Got it. Re-installing D-BUS and resuming at install #5 again seemed to do the trick!

    Not sure what causes this. Hope this issue will be gone after dbus is moved into stable webos-internals feed, so preware would warn about missing dependencies before installing qt5 package, and not just fail after install attempt. I'll prepare РR.

    Thanks a lot, it's seems a bit snappier!

    Hey guys, I seem to be having trouble adding the feed (although I have successfully installed the browser with the help of other users' posts). What url and settings do you need to have to add the feed to Preware? The url provided does not seem to be working.

    I had the same issue. At some point I got it to work, but forgot how and now having the same issue again.

    I do notice that the URL given to add the feed, once you log in, throws a 404 not found so it could have been moved.

    OK, maybe I got it. Probably you were using url containing "\" symbol in front of "_" symbol, and it's the issue. I've added it as Markdown was parsing underscore symbol in url incorrectly, producing italic text; so the url was rendered correctly without backslash. But GitLab 11.1 release has changed Mardown rendering, and visible url became broken. It's fixed now.

    That worked, thanks!

    Did anyone find out to which directory the browser saves the files to ?

    Qt WebBrowser doesn't have support for downloading files for now.
