webkit revival looks promising, but jolla may again strip it down
that's supposed to be exactly what you say - a embeddable browser instance. would be nice to use the global profile too so that people can OAuth in the accounts UI without having to log in again.
i don't think it'll get stripped down - from the conversation I had with Chris, this should eventually be the recommended way for app devs to embed a browser. i was trying to talk raine into having a go at copying text from web pages :)
although I don't see much difference with what we're doing. It still sets app-specific cache profile - similarly to what I'm doing. Also I don't see a way to inject proto handler and discard cache in case we update it. Finally - our component is lighter as it's bare gecko with required (for us) bells and whistles (dialogs) while this plugin is full of thing we don't really need (eg. audio)
