I'm been trying to build a graphical web browser, but it seems that they are all not ported to the "arm" processor. mozilla, firefox and minimo are not "ported" and koqueror-embedded is horrible. Even w3m doesn't compile (will try to fix it if I have time, or I'll test again in 1-2 weeks and correctly report it to the ports team), ok, it's not graphical, but at least it's a text browser I'm used to use.

What are you guys using? I would be really happy to have access to maps.google.com smile.gif (It should work in Minimo IIRC)

Ok, I have all the stuff... gpe-minibrowser doesn't like sqlite version 3 on my desktop where I'm trying it first but I will try again.

The most interesting bit of all this is the Gtk-Webcore stuff. very nice, I have had obd-browser running (on desktop not on the Zaurus yet) and the render accuracy is pretty good.

However, the licensing of the Webcore is on unusual territory being owned by Nokia (check the NRC* License files). Can you ever therefore distribure the webcore libraries on their own or is this and gpe-minibrowser only for people who build from source?

gtk+Webcore is just a port from webcore (apple) which is based on khtml (kde), the only shaky part is osb-nrcit:

CODE
koen@dominion:/data/build/oe/monotone/org.openembedded.dev/packages/gtk-webcore$ grep -rn LICENSE *.bb
osb-browser_0.5.0.bb:1:LICENSE = "GPL"
osb-browser_20050430.bb:3:LICENSE = "GPL"
osb-browser_20060212.bb:3:LICENSE = "GPL"
osb-jscore_0.5.0.bb:1:LICENSE = "GPL"
osb-jscore_20050430.bb:3:LICENSE = "GPL"
osb-jscore_20060212.bb:3:LICENSE = "GPL"
osb-nrcit_0.5.0.bb:2:LICENSE = "nokia"
osb-nrcit_20050430.bb:3:LICENSE = "nokia"
osb-nrcit_20060212.bb:3:LICENSE = "nokia"
osb-nrcore_0.5.0.bb:1:LICENSE = "GPL"
osb-nrcore_20050430.bb:3:LICENSE = "GPL"
osb-nrcore_20060212.bb:3:LICENSE = "GPL"


But both the author of webcore and the author of gpe-mini-browser (both nokia employees) as well as nokia itself know that Familiar and OpenZaurus ship binaries and are pretty happy with it.
