"I just uploaded a first version of Konqueror/Embedded, a port of the Konqueror webbrowser to Qt/Embedded, to http://devel-home.kde.org/~hausmann/konqueror-embedded-0.1.tar.gz. The project aims to build a feature-complete version of the web browsing component of Konqueror for Qt/Embedded, including support for SSL, cookies, JavaScript, non-blocking I/O, HTML4/CSS, etc. Well, basically almost everything the "big brother" can do, with the main difference that it consists of only one static, small binary (plus some small data files). The status of development is that it is almost feature complete (http authentication caching is missing). There are a few bugs left and some cosmetic changes in the GUI."

"Please note that this is not a fork of the original Konqueror. The port is realized by copying the unmodified original sources (this is in fact the very first step in the build process) and compiling them in a new environment, an environment without X11 and without kdelibs. This means that Konqueror/Embedded always automatically gains from the latest bug fixes and improvements of the KHTML rendering engine, the HTTP KIO slave and other sources by using/compiling the original sources directly!"
