Moblin Web Browser in Moblin 2.1

The astute may have noticed that the default browser installed in Moblin 2.1 is not Moblin Web Browser. There are various reasons for this, but if you’re interested in trying out the Moblin Web Browser (and how it would have been had it been included with 2.1), you still can by following the instructions here: How to install Moblin Web Browser in Moblin 2.1.

Note that development has already moved on quite a lot since the snapshot in the 2.1 repositories, and performance has been massively improved (to the point where it is almost indistinguishable, performance-wise, from Firefox, as long as you don’t suffer from this bug). If anyone’s interested in seeing the latest browser bits, do comment or drop me a mail and I’ll see if I can get more up-to-date packages available somewhere.
