Re: Minor Browser?
If you ask ME, webkit just shot up in its value from MY perspective...
From the article:
"privacy-piercing browser code will be treated as a security abuse."
GOOD. I've been considering writing a WebKit browser (which can actually be as trivial as less than 20 lines of Python code, or as complex as you might want, involving touch gestures and everything else chrome does) anyway. Midori started out as "a nice idea" but they went the way of 2D FLATTY McFLATFACE FLATASS FLATSO in their more recent releases, and so it's off my list of acceptable browsers... (although they ARE using shadow effect in Midori, so not nearly as bad as Australis or some of the other Chromium-crap I've had to stomach).
/me wishes I could locate and SEVERELY punish those responsible for the 2D FLATSO "everywhere" cram-it-up-our-backsides-by-removing-all-other-options B.S.
Anyway, WebKit. I like it.
here's a sample python WebKit+GTK browser in python using the older style python code - using '.' for the indents since they are "disappeared" by the editor
window = gtk.Window()
window.connect("destroy", lambda a: gtk.main_quit())
browser = webkit.WebView()
if len(sys.argv) > 1 :
yeah. it's THAT simple. Or you can add menus and bookmarks and plugins and features and gestures and zoom and and and you get the idea.
