I don't know if you have Xperia X, but WebCat acts sluggish on it. On Jolla C it was my preferred browser, but on Xperia X the performance is noticeably worse than on Jolla C for some reason. Meanwhile the stock browser performs much better than on Jolla C.

Webcat uses QtWebkit which only uses CPU acceleration.
So that explains it.
On the Jolla C the 720p display could be handled by the CPU reasonably well. (and the GPU sucks)

On the Xperia X the CPU cannot utilize the full potential yet (see some CPU limitation threads on tjc)
That should explain all that.

Have you tried out QtWebkit 5.212 on the Xperia X yet? It handles rendering differently (actually utilizing a seperate thread for it).
So performance should be better with that installed.

Hey llelectronics, I'm back to Webcat after some romance with Sailfish-browser.

Is last session restoration implemented? I asked the question some years ago and you said it was planned, but I couldn't find any option for this in the settings. Or maybe I need to use a special last-session URL as the start-up URL?

Also, the native editor for text fields does not appear on my phone: when I long press a text field, I just get the blue text selection overlay.

Go to History and see the pull down menu there.

Tap on it and it will open the native text editor


Update: Version 2.9.8 is out now

This version focussed on some refactoring and simple bug fixing.
Some new features slipped in aswell like a clear indicator when you start the browser in private mode.
The new file manager features for copy and moving in the background from LLs Video Player and Encode are included here aswell.
The current website can now be opened in Sailfish-Browser by choosing it from the share menu.
Most noticeable bugfix for QtWebkit 5.212 users is the introduction of a workaround to highlight the clicked links. This uses CSS active and hover events. So it is not working perfectly.
Tap Highlighter needs to be fixed in qtwebkit for it to work better.

Changes:
  • Detect HTML5 Media elements and embedded youtube videos after website completely loaded
  • Cleaned up Mediadetect.js (make mediadetect rerun html5 a+v & yt embed detect on touchend)
  • Some cleanup (make toolbar browserComponent and separate it from firstPage)
  • Fixed show sun/moon icon when in readermode and toolbar is expanded again
  • Some cleanup (make extraToolbar browserComponent and separate it from firstPage)
  • Fixed some errors in TabList
  • Updated translations
  • Give visual feedback when started in private mode (Closes #59)
  • Sync fmhelper changes with (LLs video Player) -> Copy/Move process in background
  • Get rid of warnings during compile
  • Make MediaDownloadRec browserComponent and separate it from firstPage
  • Fixed mixed content media site (HTML5 + YT) download button
  • Added Sailfish-Browser to share menu
  • Use slightly different approach for devicepixelratio hack that visually looks more pleasing
  • Prevent worker thread of FolderListModel from starting immediately
    de-duplicate some expensive calls
  • Set contextProperties up before loading qml to avoid error messages
  • Enable certain features only on newer qtwebkit versions if available (MediaSource Support, Autoplay Blockage)
  • Added workaround for taphighlight not working on qtwebkit 5.212

You can find the rpms on openrepos.net
