"HP has published the source code of Isis, the webOS Web browser. The company has also released the code of the browser's underlying HTML rendering engine, which is based on QtWebKit. The code is available from GitHub and is distributed under the permissive Apache license.

The webOS platform is built on top of Linux, but has a proprietary userspace stack. HP announced in December that it would open the platform's source code and continue developing it in collaboration with the open source software community. HP began publishing the code last month with the release of the Enyo JavaScript framework. The release of the browser today is another step forward for HP's webOS open source roadmap.
