Thanks for checking.

On the KT-2, SkipStone has a problem with the keyboard over-laying the input field.

And this one will not run.

Sounds like we need to work on an alternate browser for people who want one (or want to stay on 5.6.5 since we revealed how to exploit it).

I am sure that I saw mentions that other people had installed Skipstone, but I don't recall them reporting if it worked trouble free.

All three browsers are "webkit" based browsers -
But since we are not bound by corporate restrictions, we can build with a 'fixed' version of webkit-gtk, unlike Amazon/Lab126.

I had the same issues with Midori. I assume it must have worked for twobob, but it ran like a slug for me.

(He says it was tested and works on the Touch???)



Anyway, I've been happy with Skipstone, I just remember to scroll before opening the keyboard.
Occasionally it crashes the framework on very complex websites, or just after using it too much, but I'm not sure if there is a solution to that regardless.

The only thing I don't like about Skipstone is the keyboard, and possibly the old UI(which can probably be changed by editing the files). Also, clearing history doesn't actually work, as you can use a dropdown to see everything. Oh, and article mode.


Aside, I'm fairly okay with the built-in browser, but it lacks Skipstone's features, and vice versa.


I really wish Midori worked

I have Skipstone on 5.7 & it works pretty well.

Issues I've noticed: (no change since when I tried it on 5.6)
-kinetic scrolling is 1 pixel / big scrolling gesture (using the scrollbar on the right side is fast)
-Reddit has crazy weird font issues
-Typing into the address bar is very clunky, because there is no way to delete the previous http adress in a speedy manner. (aka you have to spam backspace)
