"I just uploaded a first version of Konqueror/Embedded, a port
of the Konqueror webbrowser to Qt/Embedded, to
The project aims to build a feature-complete version of the web
browsing component of Konqueror for Qt/Embedded, including support
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!"
