Isis - A QtWebKit browser - released as open-source

#1 Post by freakazoid » Wed Feb 15, 2012 7:54 pm

Isis was previously the bundled browser to HP's webOS.

Now the goal is to make it cross-platform compatible.

Could be an interesting project to keep an eye on for those of you who liked that other QtWebkit browser, Qtweb.
is it stealth? ;)

Very interesting -- not much to look at right now, but clearly has the foundation to do something great. Maybe give it 6 months?

Would have preferred a GPL over Apache license, but whatever.

Just a note, Isis is actually a new browser setup/webOS core component thats being put in the Open webOS project:
http://www.webosnation.com/hp-releases- ... ui-widgets

Which in webOS effects more then just the browser since most of the OS itself is run basically on javascript,
"It's not that I'm Evil, just that I'm unwillingly Good."
-Stolen, but oh so fitting. ^-^

It might take me a while to reply to any post or comments, I only have internet access once a week.
So if I don't reply or miss a question, this is why.
